Tam Diamond who has worked at Silverknowes and Craigroyston Primaries for nearly 27 years is leaving to take up a new post as a janitor with AMEY.
He started at Silverknowes Primary in 1992 as a Playground Supervisor, one of the first in Edinburgh . Tam enjoyed working with our children and his calm and supportive approach was recognised when he took on the additional post of Pupil Support Assistant.
We are so sorry to see him go as Tam has been such a big part of our school giving so much of his time, be it School Camps, Fun Days or helping to maintain the Environmental Garden in the holidays!
His hard work, conscientious and patient manner and willingness to help out will be so missed by us all. We wish him every success in his new post.
Mrs Cleland has taken up her post as PT, Additional Support for Learning. She is getting to know many of the children and has already met with a number of our parents and carers.
Mrs Mei Wat and Mrs Fiona McKenzie are taking up their posts in the Nursery this month and will be covering the maternity leaves of Ms Porteous and Mrs McCabe until they return later in the year.
I am delighted to announce the safe arrivals of two staff babies. Mrs McCabe had a baby boy at the beginning of February and Mr Summerfield’s wife gave birth to a baby boy in February too. We are looking forward to meeting our staff babies soon!
We are also pleased to announce that Ms Grimley is expecting a baby in July and expects to begin her maternity leave in June.
