Agree should definitely be knighted. I think the school will suffer unless someone of his calibre is not found very soon.

A real gentleman. Seemed far too clever to spend his life as a school principal but was wholeheartedly dedicated to the school and its pupils and positively shaped countless lives. The essence of Inst

was in his office more than i care to remember but in fairness that was really down to my lack of attendance, everything a principal should be and yet somehow more, his commitment was second to none

A super principal who is dedicated to the education, and futures, of the pupils. He is strict but his efforts and enthusiasm to help his pupils has to be admired and respected.

Super principal, and quite dead-on if you're a hard worker. Many don't like him as a person, but everyone respects him as a principal.
