A message from our newly appointed Head Teacher

Dear Parents, Carers, Staff and children of Holm,

I would like to say a huge hello to everyone in the Holm Community and say that I am really excited to begin working in Holm as the Head Teacher.

I am currently Acting Head Teacher at Dochgarroch, Teanassie and Tomnacross Schools and have been there for a year and a half. Before this, I was a Science Development Officer for Highland Council working in partnership with Education Scotland and the Wood Foundation. Prior to this post, I was Principal Teacher at Avoch Primary School for 7 years (with a year out in the middle to have my wee boy Freddie J).

I am very passionate about learning and families and I cannot wait to take up post.

I will arrange some time to meet you all formally when I begin.

If you need me in the meantime, my email address is

Thank you

Ruth Mackay

*and most importantly – have a super Summer everyone!
