The trophy is a lovely idea if he has meant a lot to your children.

My DH is a teacher and TBH we throw away 99% of the best teacher tat he gets given. It is very kindly meant and he is grateful, but what are you actually meant to do with it? I agree that the wine and letter would be much appreciated.

A "Best Headteacher" cup from just your family? Or from the entire school?

Something drawn or written by the children and a nice letter from you, and a good bottle of wine. He may get hundred of tankards.

it's just from my boys as he has meant alot to them

don't want to just get wine as we got him a voucher and wine when my eldest was leaving.

It's a nice idea but surely all the children in the school will have been important to him, and he can't keep a keepsake from every one of them, can he?

How about clubbing together and organising a really sentimental keepsake from the entire class/year/school?

Do the same again, then, but I'd write a letter saying just how your 2 dcs feel about him

oh, and can anyone recommend a good red wine as i don't drink the stuff!

the whole school have clubbed together , but i wanted to give him something just from us aswell
