… pre­pares for her Sky TV de­but

ED­U­CA­TOR Susanna Pinkus is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter win­ning a com­pe­ti­tion to have a pro­gramme made and shown on Sky TV.

Ms Pinkus, who is an ad­vanced­skills teacher in the Lon­don Bor­ough of Har­row and an aca­demic at Cam­bridge Univer­sity, sub­mit­ted a pro­posal for a doc­u­men­tary called “Mak­ing a State­ment”, which will fol­low the tri­als and tribu­la­tions of chil­dren and their par­ents who are at­tempt­ing to ob­tain a state­ment of spe­cial ed­u­ca­tional needs.

She tells Peo­ple: “I made the fi­nal short­list of nine, and then I was in­formed that I had won, which was fan­tas­tic news. The pro­gramme will be made in the spring and shown on Sky’s Teach­ers TV chan­nel, which is do­ing great things in the field.”

Ms Pinkus is in­volved in an­other ed­u­ca­tional project which she ini­ti­ated — a twin­ning be­tween Mo­riah Jewish Day School in Pin­ner, Mid­dle­sex, and the nearby Roxbourne Mid­dle School, where she teaches.
