Jack Jolly accepting his award at the Pointer School

Jack Jolly

Congratulations to Jack Jolly, our latest Golden Smartie award winner.

True to his name, Jack Jolly was acclaimed by the Pointer School for his positive demeanour. As a newly qualified PE teacher, Jack has made a long-lasting impression amongst his colleagues and pupils.

Mrs Ros Kilsby, Office Manager at The Pointer School wrote to us with her nomination:

“Jack is a fantastic find and perfect for us.  He is the third teacher we have engaged through Smart Teachers, who consistently send us candidates who already closely align to our unique school requirements.  Jack is a great ambassador for Smart Teachers.

He is our first full-time sports teacher, so there was some apprehension as to how it would all work, however, the children love him and he keeps control of them in training without ever raising his voice.  He is so positive and encouraging that although some of our teams have been playing for the first time, their results are amazing, and we are excited to see where it is all going to lead!

He has a lovely manner with everyone and is already very popular with the rest of the staff and parents.  His enthusiasm is truly infectious!”

Smart Consultant Bianca took a trip to South East London and presented Jack with his award during the school assembly.

Well done Jack, what an amazing start to your teaching career!
