Obituary: Christopher Bell

25th November 2021

Chris Bell passed away in Boston, Lincolnshire at the end of November 2021.
He was the DHT at Shackleton Primary in Fallingbostel between 1984 & 1989.
Previously Chris taught for 5 years at Victoria School, Hong Kong.

Notes from Malcolm Brooke (Webmaster):

I taught with Chris for the five years he was in Fallingbostel and we both left at the same time in 1989.

Chris moved back to the UK at a HT and I moved to Lemgo as DHT.

Whilst in Fallingbostel we developed what would turn out to be a simple version of the National Curriculum.

We called it Shackleton's 'Topic Planner'........the aim was to prevent the same projects (which involved a range of subjects) being duplicated.

Chris was very proud of this work.

He was a big man but was a formidable opponent on the squash court. I still have the scars to prove it!

We kept in touch over the years and I last saw Chris in 2019.
