New Heads on Shetland
Two new headteachers of Shetland schools have been appointed and both will experience some downsizing in the numbers for which they are responsible. Samantha Wishart has had 14 years of experience in Dundee, some of it in large schools, and will now be in charge at Cunningsburgh with a roll of 83. Nicholas Lucas has been in charge of a 350-pupil school in Toronto, Canada, and will be heading Foula Primary School (above) with its seven pupils. The approach to Foula (below) indicates how different it is from an urban appointment.
