Mad respect for this guy. He believed in me when no other teachers did. He has always shown me respect even when all the other teachers haven't. I learnt heaps in his classes, both of the subject and about just being a decent human being. Glad I got to be in his class.
although he comes off as quite grumpy, hes an awesome person once you get to be in his class for a bit.
He is literally the best teacher I have seen
one of the best teachers in this school. can be a little intimidating but overall an outstanding teacher
He is an outstanding teacher
Mister was quite a decent guy. He was def capable of being quite intimidating but it really depends on how you handle him. He talked a lot during class which meant we got heaps of extensions which was good haha. He was always nice to me because I was one of the few who did the work, but I didn't like it when he decided to play role play and put me up the front with people :/ overall it was quite a fun class and Mister was very knowledgeable in history.
The greatest man I have ever met.
I've never had a class with you so I wasn't sure how to rate you but as a human being I think you're swell! Such a cool guy! Good person to have a conversation with. All round cool guy. :)
He was my form teacher and my geography teacher too. bit intimidating due to his solid figure but a big man with a good heart and he always wants what's best for his students. if you swear you get put outside and do press ups in front of him while he counts. He's funny too=)
The scariest nice man Welly High has ever seen. Not to mention a great teacher
Inspirational. He is one of the reasons why I am a teacher.
Best teacher I have ever had, and most of my firends who he has tought say the same thing.
Great man, great teacher. Firm but fair, comes across as tough but I think he's really a big softy. And a funny guy too!
Great techer, does not tolerate bad students, pushes you to do better, punishes appropriate, excellent style of techer, truly excellent, great teahcer, made social my favourite subject.
Mr hollis is the man he is such a great teacher and he has such an amazing teaching style i think it would be impossible to go to one of his classes and not learn or laugh
mr holiss.... welll... he can be intimidating, but i guess he's a nice guy and he's only harsh if ur a pain.
Total legend even though I was a tad naughty.Good guy although was a little sad when I got my hands on my school file and read what you wrote about me..didn't think I'd see that did ya!
Golly. I just googled out of the off chance I could find some contact details. I had Mr Hollis as a teacher at Heretaunga College (now over) ten years ago. He was fantastic. Am I the only one who thinks this rating system is very strange ("very hard" / "very easy"? - I'm sure he would be offended if I put "very easy", especially consdering he was always pushing us to choose harder topics four our internal assessments!).
I remember I had you in 3rd form (3MSS), before I left WHS. I hated you then, 'cause I was always getting kicked out. But had I actually paid attention, I would have picked up so much. To this day I still consider you to be the best teacher I've ever had. I remember when 9/11 had occured, you showed the class the Flash clip of the Bin Laden Song, something no teacher has yet replaced in the "Cool teacher" stakes. Good stuff Mr H.
A lofty mountain of wisdom. He knows how to bring home the message and make sure his students get it. Or he scares them into getting it. But really, he's a big jolly man, very personable. Wanna be taught? He's your teacher. RB.
mr hollis is a wizard. this wizard of a teacher could school all my other teachers in their own subject hes an ultra mega baddy wizard. and he looks mass buzzy and wise
If Wellington High were ever to build a Mount Rushmore tpye tribute to great teachers, Henry Hollis would be in the centre
your the best social studies teacher ever,altham very close behind.your really helpful and you makes things easier to understand.your awesome
A mentor, father-figure and true spirit of the trees.
A man so dedicated he fights to get students back in his classes. Also my introduction to WHS. There could not have been a better one. Can explain anything to almost anyone.
He is simply great. He is one of the best teachers I ever had. He explains everything fully and it wouldn't surprise me if all his classes would pass with excellence. RECOMMENDED!!! A+++
hes got the attitude, he got the look, hes got the style, man all that guy needs is a fro
My Hollis, is an incredible teacher. He knows his stuff, and clearly puts alot of work into his lesson plans. Henry has made history enjoyable and educational. Which seemed impossible last year
absolutely oustandingly AWESOME history teacher, i love his classes, without fail they are entertaining, stimulating and enriching!
Henry is by far the bast teacher i have had. Makes class exciting and understands students. He is the main reason i went to Gerography and is the only teacher i really think of about High.
He is the shizzle fo' shure! Seriously, such a brilliant teacher, oodles of respect. Knows his topic so well and I always learn something interesting. Pushes you to be your best. Thanks heaps.
Huge respect for this man. He knows exactly what he is teaching inside and out as well as things not part of the topic. He is an inspiration and a huge assest to the school & the teaching profession.
