Catriona was an experienced and much-loved and respected educator in the Western Isles, known for her passion for STEM.
The Wood Foundation’s Education Director Gayle Duffus reflects upon Catriona’s impact during her tenure with RAiSE.
“Catriona was an important part of our team. She was supportive, inquisitive, creative, resourceful and practical, unassuming with a can-do attitude.
“She joined the RAiSE network in January 2021 and quickly used the opportunity to make a difference through her lifelong passion for STEM for schools across the islands, committed to children have opportunities to stretch their learning. As a teacher herself, she knew exactly how to support teachers and from feedback we know that they found her inputs and attitude invaluable.
