Ted Wragg (1938 - 2005)

who died, Thursday November 10th 2005.

It has been my privilege to know and to work with Ted since the early seventies. I first met him when he was external examiner to the Exeter University School of Education student teaching practice and I drove him out to schools in Torbay. Soon after this he joined the university staff and became Director of the School of Education. Interaction between us was frequent including playing 5-a-side football, which he played with typical flair and solidarity.

He set himself squarely behind the concept and development of the Schools Health Education Unit from the start and supported its continuing growth and development, even following our separation from the University. He will be sorely missed by us and by his fellow members of our Advisory Group. There was never a dull moment when Ted was in the chair.

He was ever accessible to us and we often exchanged email; our latest concerned his recent masterpiece of television concerning the "Unteachables", as it unfolded.

So many will miss him and our hearts go out to Judith and to his son and two daughters. He was a giant amongst us and the SHEU owes him so much.

Thank you Ted.
