PORTLAND: You will be educated!

Pupils at Southwell Primary School on Portland now have a permanent alien amongst them.

Parent, Roy Porter, has built a Mark 1 life-size Dalek for the school. The Dalek now lives outside the headteacher’s office, which has also been converted into a Tardis.

Headteacher Stuart McLeod explained: “In nearly all of the schools I have worked in I have converted a cupboard into a Tardis. So many children and adults love Doctor Who it is great to see them smile when they see my office. A school should be fun and a Tardis is a great place to learn.” 

Mr McLeod asked in a school newsletter if any parents would be interested in building a Dalek. Roy, Adele Moore, Daniel Leggett and Hamish Kirkland all gave their support and the result is a true – to – life replica. 

Support was given by the enthusiasts at Project Dalek website. The neck was a particularly difficult area to build, as was the finding of a disability scooter. However, the year – long project came to fruition and Roy was overjoyed with the children’s reactions when the Dalek finally arrived in school. He said, “I am so pleased the children will get so much enjoyment from it.”
