  • Went to that school in the early 1960s and my dad was the caretaker for a few years.My favourite teacher was the music teacher Miss Tofield and three of us played Harmonicas in the school concert and a couple of times in old folks homes as they were called then.Got me out of PT which I hated .I was a prefect as I recall.

  • I remember Mr.Hume, our geography teacher at secondary school, 1988. Delivered curriculum well and not just class/theory based. We covered rivers, rocks, sea, weather, farming, urbanization/towns and hamlets, glaciers, so interesting, and I think we all went on a field trip. Very down to earth, and friendly. I was his ‘star pupil’.

  • I taught PE at Leon School 1974-76. I then moved on to Saltash in Cornwall. I continued to work in Cornwall and West Devon until I retired T 55 in 2008. I look forward to reading the book and remember Duncan well.
