he is a good teacher when you're on his good side! i had him for year 11 and i would constantly argue with him, get sent out of the class room, move where i was seated! but now, as i matured, teachers have more respect for you when you have more respect from them! i like how he uses really cool new words in english! he boosts up everyones vocabulary. But its sscary when he asks a question, because if you answer it wrong, he makes you feel so bad ( a little bit ) . but overall a good teacher

Wilkie was great. He really knows the kids well, and looking back, I really appreciate what he did for us in what was, really, our formative years. Without Wilkie's help I wouldn't have developed and achieved what I did in the HSC! 10/10!

Teacher wise a good teacher, a couple of years ago grabbed a student by the arm and threw him across the hallway in the english block into a the bubble wall didn't even say sorry because he thought the kid was kicking the door. The kid ended up with a sprain wrist, scuffed elbow and was called a liar from the wilkie.

I must admit, I have something of a soft spot for Mr Wilkie. His teaching methods may be...unconventional (i.e.- prone to throwing one's work out of a window when not pleased with it), but regardless has a passion and appreciation of English that high school students rarely see these days.

Wilkie is a gift to MFHS. He taught me years ago and he left an impact on students like no other. Extremely smart and highly passionate about students and discussion. He pushes you to your limits.
