Pauline, 80 years

I meet many, many ex pupils, and there is one thing they always say, without a doubt, 'I loved PE, except Miss Skellon, I hated the vaulting horse,' and I've heard it so often I think ‘gee I must have been awful making them jump over it!'

Teaching is where I should be. When I was in third year, I thought I would be a French teacher or a pharmacist. And then I had this PE teacher, and we wouldn't do what the old ladies would do, we did folk dancing and it was fun. We saw a vaulting horse for the first time! She was so good that three of us all chose to do PE when leaving and she was the reason I became a Christian. She was a very inspiring lady. Her influence is why I became a PE teacher. And I still keep in touch with her, she is 92."
