Some might think throwing yourself off a viaduct is an extreme way of getting out of the world of teaching but for the wonderful teachers and staff of a local Derbyshire Primary school abseiling off the Millers Dale bridge was a completely appropriate way to say thank you and farewell to their Headteacher who has brought a great sense of adventure and outdoor pursuits to many schools in Derby and Derbyshire throughout her teaching career. A great evening was spent as each of the 12 ladies challenged themselves to take the plunge and landed with beaming smiles! The youngest abseiler was even too young to remember the event as he/she has not yet been born. It just shows that there’s no stopping some teachers! Well done ladies and Good Luck for all the future outdoor pursuits!
“All of our party can’t thank Andy enough for what he did for all of us individually and as a group. What a lovely friendly guy and he helped our great hen weekend into an even greater one.” Clair and the hens
