ONE student has nominated her maths teacher for a HSBC-sponsored Pride of Guernsey award.
The student, who wishes to remain anonymous, said Les Beaucamps High School’s Sion Dell deserved to win Teacher of the Year for keeping classes fun and always being there.
‘He has been incredibly inspiring and supportive throughout my first year at Les Beaucamps and he is really funny and keeps maths fun,’ she said.
‘Plus he is very kind and caring and has supported me when I’ve been struggling.’
She added that Mr Dell was also there for her when the coronavirus pandemic hit the island.
‘During lockdown he went out of his way and contacted me to make sure I was OK,’ she continued.
‘I was really worried about a test so he went above and beyond and contacted my mum to talk through it and to put my mind at rest.’
