HEADTEACHER SCOOPS TOP ROTARY AWARD
A HEADTEACHER has been presented with a club’s most prestigious award.
Headteacher of The Missenden School Robert Preston was a guest speaker at a meeting of the The Rotary Club of Great Missenden speaker.
He told rotarians of his experiences in turning around ‘failing schools.’ Over recent years he has led several schools out of ‘special measures’ and is known for his skill in this area.
He said he felt that the various projects should be treated as a business with the key to success being strong leadership and continuous engagement with students and staff.
Barbara Cann from the rotary said: “The school community is thriving as a result of Robert’s work and it is obvious love and affection are in abundance on all sides. Respect has formed a great part of this turnover and spills over from the school to the community at large.”
In recognition of his exceptional service to education and the community, The Rotary Club of Great Missenden invited Mr Preston to become a Paul Harris Fellow, which is one of the most prestigious awards in Rotary and is named after its founder Paul Harris.
