2UE announces Sydney's favourite teacher

Friday 19 September, 2014

Radio 2UE's Breakfast presenters John Stanley and Garry Linnell this morning announced the winner of its annual ‘Sydney’s Favourite Teacher’ competition, Anthony Wilson from Hunters Hill High School.
Mr Wilson was nominated for his ability to understand his teenage students, share his life experience to enrich their learning and teach them some of ‘life’s lessons’, as well as his genuine care for his students and demonstrating to them how to behave respectfully and ethically.
As ‘Sydney’s Favourite Teacher’ 2014, Mr Wilson wins $5,000 and Hunters Hill High School receives a $5,000 LW Reid voucher, the promotion’s major sponsor, to purchase school uniforms.
“We are thrilled to recognise Anthony Wilson as this year’s 2UE ‘Sydney’s Favourite Teacher’. He is obviously a talented and dedicated teacher who gives generously to his students and makes a real difference to their education and outlook,” 2UE Content Director Clinton Maynard said.
“Great teachers have the power to motivate, inspire and shape the lives of our children and that’s why we launched ‘Sydney’s Favourite Teacher’ in 2011. We look forward to continuing this valuable community promotion for many years to come because teachers play an integral role in the future of our children, so it’s vital that their contribution is recognised.”
“I am absolutely thrilled to be named Sydney’s Favourite Teacher for 2014. I am very grateful that not only myself but other teachers are being recognised in a positive way.” Mr Wilson said.
This year’s Sydney’s Favourite Teacher promotion received hundreds nominations for talented primary and high school teachers across Sydney.
2UE Breakfast’s John Stanley and Garry Linnell announced the winner at 8:20am this morning. The announcement was followed by special assembly today at Hunters Hill High School to recognise Mr Wilson.
2UE’s Sydney’s Favourite Teacher competition has recognised dedicated, passionate and talented teachers from across Sydney since 2011, including: Margriet Shaw-Taylor of St. Edmunds in Wahroonga in 2013, Ben Eggins from York Public School, Penrith in 2012 and Maree Simpson from St Charles Primary School, Ryde in 2011.
