Andy Hall was very proud to present the Teacher of the Year award, sponsored by the Garenne Group, at the recent inaugural Guernsey Press Pride of Guernsey Award Ceremony held at the Guernsey Press Offices which were transformed into a spectacular venue with state-of-the-art lighting and visuals.
The Garenne Group were keen to sponsor the hotly contested Teacher of the Year award as Group Chairman Andy Hall explains, "The quality of our teachers is the single most important issue for the ongoing health and prosperity of our island it its people. Everything else follows from a good education".
Winner, Karlie Bichard who teaches at the Vauvert Primary School was surprised to win, being happy to have reached the top three shortlist. Karlie impressed the judging panel with her total dedication, creativity, laughter and demonstration of patience and understanding of the range of individual needs each child in her care required.
