A STATEMENT from the Highland Council explains the current position of Wick High School's rector and the special work she is doing across the region to get schools reopened.
The statement released yesterday from Alison Donald, the council's education quality improvement manager, spoke of the work that Dr Fiona Grant has been involved in that has evolved due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It reads: "Earlier in the year Dr Fiona Grant was appointed to lead learning and teaching across the Highlands.
"Since that time, due to Covid-19, Dr Grant has been leading the process of reopening of schools across the area, as well as supporting the leadership team at Wick High School.
"At this point Dr Grant is still required to support the reopening of schools across the Highlands, and Mr [Sebastian] Sandecki will remain in the role of acting head teacher for the new term."
Dr Grant, who lives in Forss, was head at Thurso High until early 2013 when she stepped down to take on a teaching role.
She took on the position of temporary rector of Wick High School in August 2014.
In January, the school announced that depute head teacher, Mr Sandecki, was appointed to the role of acting head teacher for six months, starting on February 3.
The previous Wick High head, Tom McIntyre, left after a four-year stint to start work at a new school in Dubai.
