Thanks for an inspiring read.

Thanks for your comments, Jeni. I was luckier than I realised at the time to have those teachers. I loved going to school and still do 30 years later. The thing that bugs me now is that inspectors don’t show any interest in those attributes. Those teachers may not have driven up standards in the short term but they invested in us long term, and deserved more credit.
