Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion -

A TEACHER will find out to­day (Thurs­day) if she has won a na­tional award.

Nathalie Hockey, of Brook Pri­mary School, is a fi­nal­ist for a Pri­mary Lan­guage Teacher of the Year prize.

The win­ner will be an­nounced at a cer­e­mony at the Houses of Par­lia­ment.

The award was launched by pub­lisher Scholas­tic UK and La Jolie Ronde , a lan­guage tu­ition sup­plier.

Mrs Hockey has set up links with Ecole Sainte Therese, a school in her home town of Dunkirk, France, through which pupils can email and write to each other. Trips are ar­ranged an­nu­ally.

Mrs Hockey was nom­i­nated by col­league Clare Gray who said: “Nathalie is en­thu­si­as­tic, mo­ti­vated and knowl­edge­able. She loves her lan­guage and her cul­ture and com­mu­ni­cates this to the chil­dren.”
