Today is International Teachers Day, a UNESCO event held since 1994 to to celebrate how teachers are transforming education, to reflect on the support they need to fully deploy their talent and vocation, and to rethink the way ahead for the profession globally.

Today we celebrate all of our teachers and the incredible talent they bring to our children every day, but as the theme for World Teachers’ Day 2022 is “The transformation of education begins with teachers” we thought we’d share with you what one of our amazing teachers did during the summer holiday this year.

Mrs Miles, who teaches Food Technology and is our highly experienced and knowledgeable SENCO was part of a team of 12 (from 17 to 60 years old) who travelled for three weeks in August this year to rural Blantyre in Southern Malawi with Hope4Malawi, a Cheam-based charity that has been helping children out of poverty through education for over a decade.
