Rachel Harper - A respected and trusted colleague. If Paul was asked to do anything he did it and did it properly. His peaceful, kindly nature was a lesson to us all. As a teacher I always thought that, if I was child at the school, of all the classes I would want to be in it would have been Paul\'s - and that includes my own. What more can one teacher say about another!
With love and fond memories.

Even school holidays to Gorsefield and Butlins he would come and be that person with Mrs preece who would comfort you if you missed home.
