Children from Kirkhope and Yarrow primaries, writing in their school newspaper, have expressed their excitement at welcoming their new head teacher to their schools.
In The Valleys’ Wee Paper, under the headline New Beginnings at Kirhope and Yarrow, they wrote: “Mr Williams, our new head teacher, came to visit us. We were all really excited about meeting him.”
Russell Williams is no stranger to the schools having been acting head for Ettrick and Yarrow primaries from 2007-2009. Prior to his latest appointment he was depute head teacher at Drumlanrig Primary in Hawick, and before that depute for Balmoral and Glendinning primaries in Galashiels.
