We share the news of Mr Terry Hamilton's recent passing with deep sadness.

Mr Hamilton's immeasurable contributions to St. Julian's during the eighties and nineties cannot be overstated. Throughout his tenure at the school, he served in various important capacities, including Deputy Head, Secondary School Principal and IB coordinator during the programme's inception at St. Julian's.

We would like to offer our heartfelt condolences to Mr Hamilton's family. His impact on our community will always be remembered and cherished.

In remembrance, we share Staff and Alumni messages and Mr Bull's farewell message from Wings below.

Mr Hamilton was truly a rare and great teacher. He not only was a master at teaching history but also inspired us to discern empathy and appreciation for different points of view. I remember his classes fondly, his passion for the subject and his calm demeanour. RIP Mr Hamilton.
