Staff and pupils at Auchterellon School said a fond farewell to janitor Harry Emslie as he recently retired.

Harry has been a huge part of the school for the last three and a half years since joining from the janitorial team at Ellon Academy.

He made a huge impact on all the pupils and staff and they will miss his cheery smile and willingness to always go that extra mile – nothing was ever too much trouble for him.

At a special assembly on Friday, Harry was presented with several gifts from parents, staff and pupils including a wonderful book filled with pictures and messages made by the pupils.

The school wishes Harry a long and happy retirement and to thank him again for all his hard work.
