The last of the little Goddards has now entered full time education. There was a tear in mum's eye as Rose (aged 4) was 'waived off' onto the school bus with Tess and George. Not the waiving at the school gates for Rose - oh no... Rose wanted to go straight off on the School bus with the others - no messing!
All this has freed up mum, (Spartan co-director Pat Goddard) who now works on a full time basis for Spartan for the first time for 11 years!
The launch of the new music shop at Strathmashie will keep Pat (in fact all of us) very busy.
Francis Haines was working for Spartan for three months over the summer but has now left the Spartan ranks and returned to Edinburgh to start year three at the University there where she is studying education.
