AN award-winning teacher from Gorefield is featured in the latest edition of Prima magazine after enjoying a prize of a star treatment makeover.

Caroline Nofer who teaches at Gorefield Primary School was the East of England winner of the 2008 BT Award for Teacher of the Year in a primary school. She was treated to her special prize alongside 10 other school heroes from around Britain.

The prize involved a day trip to London, styling by a team of hair, beauty and fashion experts and a professional photo shoot. The four-page photo feature is in the current edition of the magazine.

Prima editor Maire Fahey said: "We feel privileged to be involved with the UK Teaching Awards for the first time and have this opportunity to say thank you to some amazing winners for making a difference in our classrooms."

Caroline, 27, was nominated by a pupil and took her teaching assistant Mel Higgs with her for the special day out.

At the photographer's studio Caroline had a 'before' photo taken and then went on to have her nails and make-up done and her hair styled. After chosing some clothes, Caroline said: "We then had to strut our stuff for the camera which took quite a few takes. My dress is by Betty Jackson from Debenhams and I got to take it home with me."
