A SPECIAL assembly was held at Woodlands Primary School in Carnoustie on Thursday to say goodbye to their headteacher.
Shirley Jeans is retiring after almost 40 years in teaching and flowers and memory books were presented to her by the children at the assembly.
Mrs Jeans was born in Dundee and started her career in 1972 at Invertay Primary in Monifieth before moving to Ladyloan Primary in Arbroath.
In 1982 she married her husband, John, and after having a family she returned to teaching and spent time at Panbride, Newbigging and Monikie.
Next she taught at Carmyllie Primary for 13 years and then Barry before taking up the post at Woodlands.
Suzanne Smith from Ladyloan Primary will replace Mrs Jeans.
