Heptonstall School is saying goodbye to Hamish Heald, pictured in the new library with pupil Rosie Davies. Mr Heald has been assisting Peter Jenel teaching Class Four.
He has got a new job at a Halifax school, but will still be going on the bi-annual school holiday after the half term. You may still see him around the village as he lives in Slack Bottom, and is planning on popping back to see the school’s production of Oliver! later in the term.
And pupils have said hello to Cara Warmby, a newly qualified teacher from Huddersfield. She is teaching Class Three during Laura Robertshaw’s maternity leave.
