Congratulations to Paul Greenhalgh, Berkhamsted Boys’ School, who is the recipient of this year’s Rex Walford Award.
The Rex Walford Award is presented to a trainee geography teacher, Teach First geographer or early career geography teacher. It is awarded for the best scheme of work developed on the same theme as the Young Geographer of the Year competition, which this year was ‘Remapping our lives’.
Head of Education and Outdoor Learning at the Society, Steve Brace, said, “I was impressed with the range of work Paul undertook to explore with his pupils how COVID-19 has changed the area where their school is situated. His scheme of work was locally based, thorough, and incorporated a number of different geographical approaches within the investigation. Many congratulations.”
The award is named after the late Rex Walford, a long-serving Fellow and former Vice President (Education) of the Society. Rex was a teacher trainer and had a passion for supporting trainee and newly qualified geography teachers.
Paul will receive a certificate, Fellowship of the Society, and prize bag of geographical goodies.
