We sent some ace reporters to interview Mr Ardery, who leaves us at the end of term for pastures new.
Why are you leaving Our Lady’s High?
Another teacher is coming here, so I have to move on.
How long have you been here?
Have you enjoyed working here at OLHS?
Yes, it’s been absolutely fantastic!
What’s your best memory of Our Lady’s High?
Did you always want to be a teacher?
No! I always wanted to do something in the countryside like Gamekeeping!
What are your plans after leaving?
To continue teaching! At Our Lady’s High in Cumbernauld.
What will you miss the most?
The pupils of course!
What advice would you offer to anyone wanting to be a teacher?
Ensure that you like children, and remember that you don’t just teach the children – they teach you.
Who was your favourite person to work with?
Too many! Everyone had an attribute!
Would you come back if you had the chance?
Any last words?
I’d like to thank all the staff for their help and comradeship and most of all the pupils!
