Tributes have been paid to a former headteacher of Hayshead Primary School who died recently.

Mrs Kathleen Durrheim led the school prior to her successor Arthur Pritchard.

Her funeral was held at St Mary’s in Dundee, where the Rev. Keith F. Hall led the tributes.

He said: “In her professional life as a school teacher, Kathleen Durrheim was innovative and enterprising and while she remained thirled to traditional values in education.

“Always she was eager to embrace fresh insights and herald a contemporary approach.

“As headteacher at Hayshead Primary in Arbroath, Mrs Durrheim was resilient without being remote, dignified without being wooden and particular without being overly fastidious.”
