My name is Miss Macleod and I am the Head of School. I am in charge of the school. I work in the office and take assemblies. I love it when your teacher sends you to the office to show me the excellent work you do!
My name is Mrs. Rigg and I am the Principal Teacher. Sometimes I help the Head of School in the office and the rest of the time I am the Teacher for Learning Support in the school.
My name is Mr. Macdonald and I am the Janitor in the school. (Sometimes the children call me the Janny!) I help you to cross the road at the lights and I look after you at playtime. I make sure the school is a safe place for everyone and I fix wee things that are broken.
My name is Mrs Ross and I am the head cook. In the canteen we cook delicious and healthy lunches for you. There is something different every day.
