New head teacher for Sound school

Shetland Islands Council has appointed Kate Grieve as new head teacher of Sound primary school, in Lerwick.

Mrs Grieve has been the depute head teacher at the school since 2003, and will take up her new post when current head teacher Yvonne Laurenson retires in June.

She has 30 years experience in education most of which she has spent in Shetland.

The council’s schools service said that her appointment would ensure consistency for the school in a time of great change in education both nationally and locally.
