Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - FRONT PAGE -

PUPILS at a Mid­dles­brough school were treated to a his­tory lesson with a dif­fer­ence.

Young­sters at St Joseph’s RC Pri­mary School were ex­cited to see pop­u­lar Boro goal­keeper Dimi Kon­stan­topou­los drop by to talk about Greek his­tory. The visit came as part of the school’s Greek His­tory Week.

Dimi also brought with him food from his new restau­rant Great, which opened at the end of last year.

Head­teacher Liz King said: “I know we have a re­ally good re­la­tion­ship with MFC.

“It is through that that Dimi of­fered to speak to the kids and open our brand new class­room.”

She said the club and its play­ers are a fan­tas­tic in­flu­ence on the school’s chil­dren.

“It is a per­fect way of link­ing the learn­ing in the class­room with some­thing that peo­ple live and breathe,” she said. “Our chil­dren loved every minute. He spent time with ev­ery­body which is lovely and it al­lows our chil­dren to see that foot­ballers are real peo­ple.”
