A sign language teacher at Witchford Village College has been nominated for a national award by her students.

Pip Johns, who has had a 100 per cent pass rate since teaching at the school, is a community education tutor there.

Miss Johns is nominated in the experienced teacher category of the Signature Annual Awards.

The awards, now in their ninth year, “celebrate individuals who are making positive changes and putting others first to improve communication and experiences for deaf and deafblind people,” said a spokesman.

“The event celebrates the unsung heroes - the people whose support can help us all achieve bigger and better things, and those who are a constant source of support and inspiration.”
