Teacher recognised for Conservation Society work

Retiring teacher, Mr Christie, was honoured this week for more than thirty year's service to the Larne Grammar School Conservation Society as he was presented with a Blue Peter cloth emblem by former pupil and founding member of the Conservation Society, Mark Haggan.

Discussing the formation of the group on his website, and the impact Mr Christie had during this period, Mark said: "The society started with a recycling campaign but grew very quickly to include clean ups, tree planting, education, and all sorts of other activities. Mr Christie was one of those inspirational teachers who lived in the memories of pupils long after they finished school. His enthusiasm and support for the society and those running it was apparent to everyone, and the encouragement to go out and do whatever you are passionate about is a lesson I have taken with me in life."

It is somewhat fitting that the final act of Mr Christie's Conservation Society career was to be awarded a Blue Peter cloth emblem, given that the society was formed in response to a Blue Peter Christmas Appeal. It was even more fitting that Mark was on hand to present the emblem to his former mentor.

Summarising Mr Christie's impact Mark commented: "I am just one of no doubt thousands of pupils who have been inspired by this wonderfully motivational man in his time at the school, and as well as marking his retirement, I, like I am sure many others, would like to say, "Mr Christie, thank you”."

He will leave big shoes (or should that be wellie boots) to fill when he departs at the end of the month.
