STUDENTS paid tribute to a teacher who lost her battle with cancer during the Easter break.
Youngsters at Worle Community School held a non-uniform day and raised money for St Peter’s Hospice in Bristol where Christine Lemin spent her final days.
Her colleagues said: “Christine had a passion not only for science, especially chemistry, but also for a variety of activities, which reflected her zest for life.
“Christine was a skilled salsa dancer and even taught people how to do it.
“This inevitably filtered into her school life, where she played an active part in the school dance company, putting much of her personal time into preparing the students for various shows.”
Christine, of Bristol, was also an avid glider and was a member of a gliding club, which led her to work for Airbus before she became a science teacher.
She enjoyed skiing and became an instructor in the sport before her love of salsa finally dominated her interests.
