Teachers change lives

School Chapel
I lunched in Westminster today with old friends. Three of us have known each other for more than 60 years; the fourth taught us Chemistry over 50 years ago.

Another old friend had organised the meeting to celebrate and thank the teacher who inspired us, but sadly could not join us today.

Of my three schoolmates two are now eminent scientists; the third switched from Chemistry after graduation and has reached the top of his chosen profession.

So here's to all those who teach or have taught. You change lives, and you will always be remembered.
