Strathmore Primary School in Forfar has a new head teacher.

She is Mrs Jennifer Garnes, former head teacher at Portlethen Primary School in Aberdeenshire and before that Marykirk Primary School for 12 years.

She lives in Angus and says she was “so excited” about moving to Strathmore Primary School.

She told us: “This is a great school - the staff, pupils and parent council are all outstanding. It is very exciting getting to know the local community and the Rev Barbara Ann Sweetin (school chaplain).

“The uniqueness of Strathmore really impressed me with its community feel.

“The Strathie Cafe takes place every Thursday and the nursery recently had a great HMI report.”
