A good bye to Mr Haycocks
Each person you meet has something to teach you. Learn from each person! ― Avijeet Das
Thomas Haycocks parachuted into the Design and Technology department to provide us with a brief moment of support when the school found ourselves in need at the start of the 2019-20 school year. With never ending cheer and a willingness to give his time and experience to the students pursuing DT, Tom has given us the reprieve needed to find a way forward for the school. When I met Tom, I knew that his time with us would be brief as he had other plans for his own life, but I have appreciated his flexibility and constant presence as he supported the students. He has gone out of his way to make the transition for the incoming head of department smooth, and his kind hearted nature has caused both the technicians and students to appreciate the atmosphere he created while working in the department. He has much to offer wherever his parachute chooses to land next, and I am grateful for the opportunity, albeit brief, to have worked with him.
