Sylvia Finlayson finished work as school secretary at Kyle Primary on 22nd December, after 27 years.
Head teacher Alison MacLennan said Sylvia had been a “sheer joy” to work with and added: “Sylvia has been a loyal colleague and a hard worker who was a source of great support and strength. She is loved by the pupils and loved and respected by the parents, many of whom were pupils in the school in Sylvia’s early years. We will be sorry to see her go. She had knowledge and wisdom that only comes with experience and she has a fantastic sense of humour too.”
A special farewell dinner will be held for Sylvia in the Lochalsh Hotel on Saturday 16th January.
