So near and yet so far in fi­nal

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

A TEACHER nar­rowly missed get­ting the top award in a na­tional fi­nal.

Nathalie Hockey, of Brook Pri­mary School, was pipped at the post for a Pri­mary Lan­guage Teacher of the Year.

But she did not walk away emp­ty­handed as one of only four fi­nal­ists in the na­tional com­pe­ti­tion.

The award was by pub­lish­ers Scholas- tic UK and La Jolie Ronde, a lan­guage tu­ition sup­plier.

Her prizes in­cluded a framed cer­tifi­cate, £500 of La Jolie Ronde re­sources and £200 of Scholas­tic books.

The pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mony was at the Houses of Par­lia­ment and Mrs Hockey re­ceived her prize from judges’ chair­man Ge­off Swinn.
