Just in from Geoff Rutherford, Head Teach of Wyche CE Primary School in Malvern:
Just to let you know the parents here have really bought into the whole concept of the Heroes Day. I suspect the personal connection I have with your family and with Richard has had a huge impact but also the parents have already shared with me that they are having fascinating discussions with their children about what makes a hero. They are already tending to move away from Batman! Indeed even the staff have had the discussion with many concluding that their hero was often someone personal to them like a friend or a teacher rather than a big personality like mother Teresa and the like. It is great stuff and alongside supporting a good cause has immense educational value as a concept in its own right.
