STEBBING primary school said goodbye to an 'outstanding' teacher last week as Eilidh Huntingford called time on her illustrious career.

Mrs Huntingford is retiring, after 18 years of teaching at Stebbing, returning to her native Scotland, giving the children and staff one last opportunity to celebrate her Scottish heritage.

There was not a dry eye in the house as the piper led Eilidh into a Scottish themed assembly. The children then sang, danced, acted and told jokes for the guest of honour.
