It is the end of an era for the Connective Learning Dyslexia Centre in Kelsall as Margaret Hogan retires from her post as centre supervisor.

Margaret has played a central role at the centre since it was opened in 1999 by her sister Isabel McIntyre.

Isabel said: “Margaret was instrumental in creating the warm atmosphere that characterises the centre and has shown shining examples of kindness, empathy and care over the past 16 years.

“Through her literacy skills and knowledge, she has influenced hundreds of lives for the better, helping to create happier futures for many dyslexic students and their families.”

From October, the position of supervisor will be taken on by Tara Holt, who has worked with Margaret in the centre over the past three years.

Centre staff, students and parents enjoyed a celebration at the centre to thank Margaret for her contribution and to wish her well for the future.
