Au Revoir Mr Wilson!

22nd May 2020


It's Mr Wilson's last day today. 

Here's a message from Miss Norman:

We could tell immediately that Mr Wilson would fit right in at Hillcrest. 

He is an extremely passionate teacher who always goes above and beyond what is expected of him. 

I’m sure I speak for every single one of the children in his class when I say that his lessons are engaging, fun and memorable. Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of walking into his classroom will know that your eyes don’t know where to look first - it’s full of colour and interest and every display/ sign and corner supports and encourages learning. 

Mr Wilson has been covering Mrs Willis’ maternity leave and working in Year 5 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. 

His partner teacher, Mrs Livingston, interviewed Mr Wilson with me back in September. After we had watched him teach and he had completed his interview she said "Can we keep him?" - a ringing endorsement if ever there was one!  

No, I'm afraid we can’t.... at least, not for Term 6.  

But I’m delighted to say that Mr Wilson WILL be back at Hillcrest in September. (I'll let you know which class he'll be taking in the first week of Term 6.) 

All the best Mr Wilson. Thank you, and see you in September.

PS  Being the man he is, Mr Wilson will still be checking in with the class on Seesaw and Zoom when he can in Term 6!
