    After 42 years as a professional modelmaker I have become a technology technician at a school. It's no ordinary school. Sevenoaks School opened in 1432! I am not only cutting part for pupils and helping them with laser cutting and 3D prints. I have been able to lead a history lesson using my trench models and now have set up a Remembrance display outside our workshop . It contains my models plus some of the memorabilia that inspired my interest in WW1. I am really enjoying helping and inspiring a new generation as I ease towards retirement. This job is just what I needed!

    I did something similar several years ago when I was still teaching in mainstream. I had a friend in the RAF at the time and we arranged for him to bring some apprentices to the school and we dug a real section of trench which we used as a teaching aid! The RAF guy, me and my technician spent a night in it for charity dressed in 1WW gear and we made trench stew, etc..! The local press were all over it!(y)
