Michael Wilson

Ms RYALL (Ringwood) — The sports oval at Norwood Secondary College has been named Wilson Oval after Michael Wilson, who has contributed 40 years of service as a teacher to the college. Michael is an unsung hero. He is a teacher who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help his students be the best sportspeople they can be. Mike pioneered and coached girls sports teams with a focus on cricket and football.

These teams were hugely successful and popular, and judging by the quotes about Mick on my Facebook page, it is clear that many current and former female students view their time playing cricket and football as some of their best years at Norwood. Congratulations. Thank you Mick for your fabulous work.
