…who was nominated by Miss Betts and I for the Inspirational Educator Award in Environmental Education.

The quality of the candidates was very high and the judges’ decision-making apparently was quite challenging and Heather is one of the eight prize winners!  The judges were very impressed with Heather’s impact on Birkwood Primary School. She has not only transformed the physical environment, in which learning takes place, but also the engagement and performance of children of all ages in the school, by linking the pleasure of outdoor nature activities to the Science curriculum and life-enhancing skills. As one of the judges stated: “Her impact may be confined to one school at present, but it goes deep and will last the children a life-time.” Miss Betts and I and all of the staff and children in school are very proud 😊

Thank you to the ‘Worshipful Company of Educators’ for this Award.
