Tributes paid to ‘outstanding’ PE teacher who died suddenly over Christmas

Have your say

THE headteacher and deputy head of a school in Waterlooville saw multiple versions of themselves when pupils came to school dressed as them.

About 120 youngsters paid £1 to impersonate Diane Lawry, head of Mill Hill Primary, and Peter Leonard, her deputy, to raise money towards a range of Christmas activities and parties for parents and pupils.

Mr Leonard, who normally switches between a formal suit and PE gear to teach games at school, said: ‘The children really entered into the spirit of our unusual dress-up day!

‘We even had some boys come in as Mrs Lawry, dressed in frocks, glasses and hair clips!

‘It was so lovely to see all the effort the children went to and how much fun they had.’

Mr Leonard added: ‘I was particularly pleased that they think I am so glamorous.

‘Many of the pupils who came in suits looked a lot smarter than I normally do!’
