Farewell: TRAC's longest serving chaplain David Willsher will farewell a ten-year career, teaching and caring for students like Grace Flagg, 13, and Jaylah O'Meley, 14.

A beloved high-school teacher and long-serving chaplain will bid adieu to his Wagga life this week.

Reverend doctor David Willsher (Doc) said he would miss the community of the Riverina Anglican School (TRAC) the most. 

“(The students are) fabulous kids,” Mr Willsher said. “They’re just lovely human beings.”

Doc said he had witnessed great changes across the college during his ten years of service. 

In addition to teaching science and humanities subjects, he said he was there to model and remind people what caring was. 

Principal Paul Humble said it would be a “huge loss” for the school.

“He’s an exceptional mind and an exceptional chaplain,” Mr Humble said. “In my short time he has been so very helpful.”
