Staff, pupils and parents associated with a Ross-shire primary school have welcomed a special accolade given to one of their own.
Caroline McCrombie, a teacher at Tarradale Primary School in Muir of Ord, has been given the highest possible accolade for her work with the teaching union, the EIS.
Head teacher Tracy Sinclair said news of the accolade came at a particularly poignant time, on International Women’s Day.
She said: “It was my absolute pleasure recently to put forward why, as a team, we thought this absolutely fitting.
“This lady is a true scholar. She never stops learning. She strives for perfection and excellence and as a team, she supports us through many new developments in our school.
“We are honestly just so utterly delighted for our lovely friend and colleague and will shout this from the rooftops! Tarradale is so proud of you.”
Mrs McCrombie has been awarded an honorary EIS degree, making her a Fellow of Educational Institute of Scotland. Since being granted a royal charter by Queen Victoria, it is the only union able to award degrees.
A recipient of the EIS degree is a Fellow of the Educational Institute of Scotland, denoted by the post-nominal FEIS.
The school plans to celebrate her fantastic achievement when possible.
