Friday hero

31st March 2000 at 01:00
Mrs Moya Makin has been a special needs teacher at St Joseph's school, Launceston, Cornwall, for the past 12 years.

This special teacher has changed the lives of many children - understanding their problems, encouraging them, supporting them, then sharing in their triumphs. So says her friend and colleague, Christine Bickell, a Year 4 teacher who appreciates Moya's sense of fun and her "unque flair" with fancy dress. Moya will be much missed by staff and pupils when she retires early this term through ill health.
