Shetland schools welcomed nine new probationary teachers into the classroom at the start of the new academic year.
They are David Burke, Emma Black, Emma Murray, Linda Tait, Kirstin Sineath, Cheryl Cluness, Nicola Wagstaff, Laura McIntyre and Linsey Spence.
Six have been placed in primary schools while the other three have been allocated to secondary schools – one at Anderson High School, one working between Aith Junior High School and Brae High School and the other between Whalsay School and the Anderson High School.
Councillor Vaila Wishart, chairwoman of the SIC education and families committee, said the local authority was really pleased to welcome new probationers.
She said: “These new teachers will be a real asset to schools and the local authority in general, bringing new ideas and fresh enthusiasm.
“We hope they find Shetland a rewarding and supportive place to complete their probation.”
