Central City News: Fit-ting in gym for retirement' HANDSWORTH.

PE teacher Michaela Mold is looking to retire in style by spending more time in the gym and on the golf course.

Michaela, aged 60, has been putting pupils through their paces at King Edward's Handsworth School in Rose Hill Road, Handsworth, for nearly 40 years.

She joined the girls' grammar school in September 1969 and has completed a mind boggling 115 terms during the intervening period.

She said: "I have taught thousands and thousands of girls over the years.

"I started in the PE department and later became head of PE, but I have also been head of Key Stage 3 for the last 12 years and school sports co-ordinator of the five local primary schools."

Michaela, who called it a day at the start of the festive holiday break, said she would have no problem occupying her time in retirement.

"The golf clubs are calling and I've also had a gym membership for years, she said."
