A former Norfolk high school geography teacher has been appointed to serve on the Broads Authority for four years from April 1.

Sholeh Blane replaces Norfolk farmer and sailor Simon Daniels who has served for ten years.

Mrs Blane, who lives in Dereham, taught at Costessey High School where she spent some time as head of the geography department and deputy director of the sixth form. Here she promoted the Broads as a topic for the GCSE coursework, leading her students on field trips to learn about the special nature of the environment. She is also a governor of Northgate High School in Dereham.

“Education is so important,” she said. “Children absorb and soak up everything you teach them. If you bring them up with the ethos of respect for the environment and give them an understanding and appreciation of how to enjoy it without damaging it that's how they will grow up.”
