Mr Dave Perkins (1943 - 2022)

I have great memories of Mr Perkins, JDP, Dave, Chin, Polly (a nickname from his own school days that he didn’t seem to mind explaining when it somehow emerged). I retain fond memories of being taught by him about German, French, Rugby, Life and Psychology.  The latter in how he would focus our attention by offering Polo’s to anyone who spotted an error in what he said. Clever stuff. I remember the Carols sung in German and still re-read the words he wrote about my one appearance for Gloucestershire under 18’s in which he spoke of the value of perseverance (in my case I am sure he meant as a substitute for talent). He will be missed.
