MOIRA Brady’s school days in Penicuik are bound to be well-received.

She now has the time to look back on 18 years as head teacher at Cornbank St James Primary School, thanks to a unique and priceless memento.

The 60-year-old, from Edinburgh, said a fond farewell to pupils, colleagues and parents last week, concluding a 38-year career in education across the Lothians.

In ‘This Is Your Life’ fashion, Moira’s tenure was marked with the presentation of a large book containing the comments and contributions of those who have visited her office or met her beyond the school gates in Marchburn Drive.
