Princess Anne presents Leicester teacher with OBE
A teacher has collected an OBE awarded for services to education and community cohesion in Leicester.
Dipak Kumar Fakey, a teacher at Abbey Primary Community School, in Ellis Avenue, Belgrave, was presented with his medal by the Princess Royal, Princess Anne, on March 12.
Mr Fakey runs a Good Values Club at his school on Saturdays. The club is based on Sathya Sai Education in Human Values.
It is based on five human values – truth, love, peace, right-conduct and non-violence.
A number of schools and other educational institutions have adopted the programme.
Mr Fakey said " I found the investiture very thrilling and HRH Princess Royal charming and knowledgeable. She said she knew about the club and was impressed by my work."
