Mike Garnett is a PE teacher at the Stonehenge school, Amesbury, Wilts He's an enthusiastic and popular member of staff at this mixed comprehensive, coaching football teams and regularly taking pupils to watch England play at Wembley. Sadly, last month Mike was assaulted at the school by an intruder and, though not seriously injured, was shaken. His wife Kate suggested we send him a bunch of flowers to give hi "a better Friday". Headteacher Tim Small says: "Mike displayed a typically professional reaction by putting the safety of his pupils first."
