Congratulations Maria on winning the London sports teacher of year award

Whitefield Schools sports teacher Maria Papazoglou has been named London's best sports teacher for the second year in a row. This time last year she was awarded the accolade by 'TeamUp'  - a programme run by several sports bodies.

This year it was the turn of educational charity 'Inspire Schools' to recognise her work, in an award ceremony held at the the Royal Aeronautical Society’s headquarters in Mayfair last week. 

Whitefield Principal Laura Pease said it was great to see Maria's work recognised and praised the way that she worked to  help so many children and young people –  not just the sporty ones –  enjoy PE and experience a sense of achievement.
