Teacher leads by example
A SPORTY teacher who completed the London Marathon hopes to inspire her pupils to achieve their goals.
Teacher at St Mary’s Church of England Primary School Louise Stockdale, organises a running club at the Old Amersham school and has entered budding runners into various competition with good results.
Mrs Stockdale said: “The London Marathon was an incredible experience. I was so encouraged by the amazing crowd who totally involved themselves in motivating the runners. I feel very privileged to have been a part of this race.
“The children, parents and staff from St Mary’s gave me great encouragement and helped me to exceed what I needed to raise for my charity. I hope that by having done this, I will encourage our children to aim high and achieve it.”
