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.
