Ann Landels, one of Aberdeen's finest education chiefs, said her official farewell last week to the finest musical accompaniment she could muster.
Sadly, that was only the band of ageing rockers headed by former director John Stodter, now general secretary of the Association of Directors of Education in Scotland.
The original band of teachers and hangers-on was formed for Stodter's farewell six months ago but was brought out of the musical museum once more, rebranded as Exit Strategy.
Landels, like a string of others, has been ousted in the corporate shake-up. Her most recent title was head of service, culture and learning (neighbourhood services south), so you can see why she's leaving.
The band extended its repertoire by including the Pink Floyd classic, "Another brick in the wall", subtitled "we don't need no educashun", and finished off with "I predict a riot" by the Kaiser Chiefs.
Rumour has it the band is now working on that old Animals' favourite, "We gotta get out of this place".
