Thank you ….and Farewell

I wanted to take a last opportunity to say ‘THANK YOU ‘

Thankyou to the people I have worked with during my career and the young people in schools across Britain and the world who have let me be part of their story. They have been my teachers, mentors and friends……… and made me a better teacher and a better human being.

Royal MIle has been a big part of my life for almost 13 years – definitely lucky for me!

A big thank you goes to the wonderful staff, past and present, who have always given 100% and gone over and above for the children of Royal Mile Primary School. To the families and friends of Royal Mile who have been so supportive and so open to trying new things and joining in with everything!

However… the biggest thank you goes to the amazing young people, the phenomenal Royal Milers. You have all been fantastic and I look forward to hearing, reading about and watching you all achieve amazing things in the future.

I feel a little bit jealous of Mrs Henry as she joins Royal Mile as your new Head Teacher. She is SO LUCKY to join the best school ever!

Thank you!

Dear Primary 1,

You have been a joy! Thank you to you and your family for working with us as a team to have lots of fun, learn and be happy at school. We have been amazed at your resilience in what has been a unique year, and are so proud of you all.

I have attached a few links below which were requested. You should still be able to use your Education City login over the holidays.

Wishing you a very happy and healthy summer holiday.

Miss Copeland, Mrs B and Mrs McGlashan
