At the start of this week, the Trinity community was shocked and saddened to hear that one of our English teachers, Mr Rob Cornick had passed away. The news was completely unexpected, with Rob playing a full role in school last week, and indeed even featuring in last week’s newsletter making phone calls for Year 11 parents’ evening.
Rob’s teaching career started at Ashton on Mersey school in 1993, and after five years there he was promoted to join the team at Trinity in 1998. Rob was a wonderful form teacher, a talented and dedicated English teacher and a life affirming colleague to work with. As our Sixth Form flourished, Rob took on the leadership of the English Literature course. Just last week, Rob gave a presentation to senior staff on the Sixth Form magazine; he was animated, passionate, well planned and his presentation impressed us all.
Tributes to Rob have flooded in this week from those whose lives he enriched in the past; ex-colleagues, parents and students have all been in touch. We have opened an online ‘Rob Cornick Memory Book’ where we are collating the community response to this tragic news. The link to the book is here: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=esHvM39D_0KMOvWin_1JKWYKym7IsQRKuRB5kq6yZ7pUMlBNODhNNVdYNVk0S1k4UU5YREdNTlUxQi4u
Rob brought light and life to all he met and we will miss him dearly. Rob’s two children both attended Trinity in recent years, and of course our thoughts and prayers are very much with them, his family and loved ones at this extremely sad time.
