New head proves a hit with pupils
NEW bagpipe-playing Littleham Primary School head teacher, Duncan Nelmes, has only been in post for a month - but has already proved a big hit with his pupils.
Duncan, 40, first started teaching in 1993 in West Sussex and since then has worked in Italy, London and for last 12years in Devon. Most recently he was deputy head teacher in Countess Wear.
He praised the work of former head teacher Penny Hickman and said as a church school this term he and the pupils together were exploring their core values of friendship, forgiveness and generosity.
He said: “I am learning to play the bagpipes - so I hope you’ll hear from me again!
“I feel it is important to model that learning is something that we are all involved with. It doesn’t simply just stop in school. We are all lifelong learners.
