The islands’ new head teacher Linda Todd will be officially welcomed to her new role today during a special service at the Parish Church.

Canon Paul Miller says church schools in the Diocese of Truro usually commission a head teacher.

Paul doesn’t think that this has happened in Scilly before.

There’ll be words of welcome from Cannon Miller along with Chair of Governors Ben Julian and Council Chairman, Amanda Martin.

The Assistant Bishop of the diocese, the Bishop of St Germans, is also attending along with representatives of the Roman Catholic and Methodist churches.

Paul says he’s tried to make the occasion as inclusive as possible and there’ll be music from the school choir and wind band.

And he says he’s looking forward to a celebration that marks the start of a new chapter in the life of the school.

The service starts at the Parish Church at 2pm.
