A KILWINNING school recently said farewell to a very special member of staff.

St Luke’s Primary teacher Lena Scott retired just before pupils finished for the Christmas holidays.

St Luke’s Primary school said: “It was with very heavy hearts that we finished for our Christmas break this year as we also had to say a fond farewell to our very own Mrs Scott.

“It is unbelievable to think she won’t join us in January. Mrs Scott, you are the heart of our staff, and we will all miss you dearly!

All the best from all at the Irvine Times.
