A special mention for teachers


A special mention for teachers

Having taken a day's leave to accompany my youngest son on a school trip today to the Natural History Museum can I just say to anyone in the channel who has family working in the teaching profession give them a big pat on the back.

Like most people I like to imagine that my job is demanding and serious but it is nothing compared to the responsibility of looking after children. Not just looking after their safety but looking after their minds. I have never fielded so many questions in such a short space of time. They soak it up like sponges and what you say really goes in.

Those that carry out that responsibility every day deserve praise and a special mention.
