Do you know an exceptional teacher of pupils aged between four and 18, who can follow in the footstep of Tony Willis, who had a leg amputated but became a sports master, or of Mary Cameron, who joined a remote school in Scotland because someone was sick and is still there 36 years later? Woman magazine and Encyclopedia Britannica are inviting nominations by December 30. The winner will receive Pounds 5,000 towards school funds and a crystal apple trophy. Details: 071 430 0788.
