  • Mr. Pannu was a favourite teacher of mine at Elmwood High School. He had a nice balance of structure and kindness. My sincere condolences to his family. Donna Chonstkewich - Posted by: Donna Chonstkewich (Former student) on: Jan 23, 2023

  • He was a fun teacher who provided structure with concise explanation. His class allowed me to receive a high mark, which I used, to apply to Phys. Ed, plus two other degrees, and now am a teacher also, for the last 24 years! Inspirational man! His methods will live in with me! Condolences. - Posted by: Darrell Mazur (Student, 1973) on: Jan 02, 2023

He was kind, patient, and knew how to add some light comedy when teaching life's lessons to his students. My condolences to his family.
