only heard of his death now. Really sad, good teacher but more importantly a really nice guy. Didn't get angry over stupid stuff and everyone loved him.
Mr Wilkinson was such an amazing man, and he was never looked upon by his pupils as a teacher, but more someone who genuinely cared for those whom he taught. I was never taught by him, but his presence in the school community is greatly missed. He spoke to everyone as i he had known them since they were in first year. He is and will be sorely missed through the coming years. R.I.P Wilko
RIP Mr Wilkinson. I only had Mr Wilkinson for careers in my third year and I didn't think much of him but from what I hear and that facebook group made in his honour, he had an impact on the lives of his pupils.
RIP Mr W, some of the best years at that school were spent chatting away to you. You will be missed but never forgotten, thanks for the memories!!
This is to update those who may not know this. Geoff Wilkinson passed away on the 12th August 2011 aged 42 of Leukaemia.... I think we are all agreed that he was awesome!
leave him alone!!! he is a LEGEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
still love the man,had him for geo. in first 3 years.
We love u mr. w, never leave us with such a scary sub again, kindly!
Our year 8 class love him! Lets us write on the white board at the end of class. Our favourite teacher this year!
Mr wilkinsin is nice. He treats us like real people and doesn't holler at us like my other teachers! :)
You are awesome Mr. W!!! Soooooooooo GLAD 2 HAV U BACK SIR U HAV NO IDEA WAT CLASS WAS LIKE WITH THAT WOMAN!!!!!! Lets just say ummm.... BORING! to put it poitely. lol
He taught me for 6 years in the past and I thought a lot of him. Hopefully this is just a temporary blip in his teaching. He was a ound bloke in the 90s and I know that he is a good teacher from my results. Currently still a student, some modules very much related to geo!!
An independent voice here (ex pupil) .He was a good teacher and a nice bloke. Not sure what has happened in last few years.
Not entirely sure what the propaganda is all about. However, he taught me for 5 years and a more genuine person you could not meet. My results were always good and we had a good relationship. He is a very pen person . I think that some young brats have maybe taken advantage of that. However, nice man, good teacher. Someone that I would like to meet again now that I am a graduate.
Has attained legendary status long before now. A sound bloke and I wish him all the best in today's difficult teaching environment. He taught me in the late 90s and I remember him as one of the best.
ITS LIKE A CONCERATION CAMP WITH MISS LITION COME BACK mR. wILKSION !!!!!
omw g8 guy but doesnt have a sense of sarcasm hes gone at the min and we av mrs linton... :

WILKO! We love u wilko, we do , we love u wilko we do! :)
I went to Academy in the mid 90s. I had a lot of respect for mr wilkinson. Have bumped into him a couple of times since that and he still is a gentleman.
A class with mr wilko is always a stress free period. He is such a nice bloke. Thinking of doing geo. next year. What are the odds that I will end up in his class? This will influence my decision! :)
Great memories of big G in year 10! Wish I was back there now!!
Nice teacher, does not shout unlike my other teachers. I am year 8
Good all round bloke. Does get stressed some times but that is not surprising with my class! Good craic. Girls in my class love him
Great. Another year and I still really like mr wilkinson. he is human!!
Never cross with me or my mates but doesn't like my class much, Class teacher though
He is the most understanding teacher. Not like those other folks that have a major problem with understanding our lives!!!
Hi is the best! Can talk to him as a fellow human being, not like the other teachersd! Will miss Wilko next year! !!
nice teacher. his brother played rugby with my dad! like him
an interesting character to have as a teacher. Can be very witty when he puts his mind to it
A top bloke who did well with what I thought was a less than exciting subject.
we will miss seeing mr wilkinsin over the easterr break. xox
He doesn't need to rate himself- we like him loads so we can do it!!! :)
I will remember mr wilkinson's classes long after i have left school; lovely man, tolerant and good fun
What can i say , apart from - keep it up wilko- total respect for the wilko lad! love him!!!
best craic ive had in years! wilko is pure class like!
I wish the rest of my so called teachers were like the Big G Wilk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOL
Happy Birthday Mr Wilkinson! Love your new set of wheels!!!!!!!!
probably one of the best teachers in the school .... and one of the nicest people too
Can't say a bad word against him. Seems like a nice person
Without shadow of a doubt, one of the best people in the school! Not really strict about stupid things. Has a great sense of humour. wish my other teechers wrree like wilko!!!
