Ex Headteacher John Evans Has Passed Away

2pm, Friday 25th August 2017

We have just heard the sad news that John Evans, ex headteacher at Five Islands School and much-loved husband and father, passed away Thursday evening.


He had been poorly for some months, spending much time in both Derriford and Treliske.  Many islanders will remember him as a charismatic and highly effective headteacher here on St Mary's, and he was widely respected on the mainland as a headteacher and a very active CASH (Cornwall Association of Secondary Headteachers) member in the 1980’s and 90’s.


Our thoughts are with his wife, Marie Hunter, at this difficult time.
