ANDERSONArnold T.1946 - 1970RTime at School: 1946-1970, 1972-1972

Deputy Rector (1968)

Department:Responsibility for Languages

Subjects: French, Latin

Details: Lieutenant in Royal Navy 1940-1944.

National 440 yards Hurdles champion in 1933, 1937 to 1939.

Died 17.1.1996, age 83.

From the 1970 School Magazine:

A graduate of the University of Canterbury and Christchurch Teachers College, Mr. Anderson began his teaching career in 937. In the following year he won the distinction of representing New Zealand as a hurdler at the British Empire Games at Sydney. In 1939 he returned as a member of the staff to his former school, Timaru Boys High. After transferring to Christchurch West High School in 1940 he left for England to loin the Royal Navy in which he served until 1944. Returning to New Zealand he was appointed to Naval Intelligence in Wellington, and then after demobilization he joined the staff of Kings at the beginning of 1946.
Mr. Anderson’s main teaching interests have been in Latin and French. His many pupils will remember his abhorrence of slovenly work and his insistence on high standards. A firm disciplinarian he has been at the same time very human and a man with a keen sense of humour.
Outside class he gave freely of his time in coaching in athletics at a time when the record of school teams in track and field events and in cross-country running particularly good. When it was decided to establish the Sea Cadets as part of the Cadet Battalion, Mr. Anderson again established a very efficient unit which he controlled for several years. In rugby too his services were in demand and he cheerfully gave valued service here.
Members of the teaching staff have always found Mr. Anderson a valuable colleague, obliging, cheerful and co-operative.
In more recent years he has carried the burden of responsibility as Deputy Rector with considerable calls being made upon him. He again has insisted on high standards of conduct from pupils and has not spared himself in matters of school organisation. Now that he has decided to step down from this position we wish to thank him for all that he has done for King’s and to add a further word of thanks to Mrs. Anderson for her interest in the school.

ANDREWSNeil R.HOD Technology1976 - 2013From the Otago Daily Times
After 37 years at King's High School, technology teacher Neil Andrew will retire at the end of this year.

When he started out as a builder more than 40 years ago, the last thing he expected to be doing with a hammer and saw during his career was teaching in a secondary school.

But looking back, the 64-year-old said he could not imagine his life any other way.

After 37 years of teaching technology at King's High School, Mr Andrews has decided to retire and look at some new projects. Mr Andrews came to teaching in 1976 when he found the building profession was in a rut and not paying his bills.

So he went into teaching, with the hope of returning to the building trade when it returned to profitability.

''But I never did go back. I left the building trade on the Friday and I was in a classroom on the Monday.

''It's very infectious, this place. I didn't intend to stay this long.''

Mr Andrews said the hardest thing about changing professions was the constant change in classes.

''You had a new class/project every 40 minutes - not like building houses where you had a new project every few months.''

He learnt very quickly that pursuing a teaching career had many rewards.

Coaching the school's rowing, rugby, yachting, volleyball and smallbore rifle shooting teams and watching boys develop their skills and grow into young men was particularly rewarding, he said.

''I love the family atmosphere here.

''Former pupils still come back to the workshop to offer their expertise and to see what's changed over the years.

''I also teach a lot of the sons of boys I taught when I first arrived at the school.''

His legacy will live on in the many projects his pupils have built over the years, including the school squash courts.

''I built them with the help of all the students carrying concrete blocks every night after school; and I was the communication person between the school, the architect and the builders during the rebuilding of the school.''

One of the major benefits of the job was being surrounded by experts in other fields, he said.

''I was taught photography by a fellow teacher.

''It was one of the many bonuses of going into teaching. You get to pick the brains of other teachers for free.''

Learning to take professional-quality photographs led Mr Andrews to become the school's ''official photographer'', photographing sport, musicals, staff and prospectus images for the school.

He has photographically documented almost every major event at the school since 1976, and has been the official photographer of many former pupils' weddings.

Mr Andrews will retire at the end of this year to become an apiarist (beekeeper).

He has tended many hives part-time in Central Otago over the years as a hobby, and now plans to move to Alexandra and make it his ''life after retirement''.

Mr Andrews said he would inevitably miss the pupils the most when he left the school.

So he planned to return to the school occasionally to continue photographing important moments in the school's history.

As he said: ''It's very infectious, this place.''

BARRJohn DavidPHOD Mathematics & HOD Computing1971 - 2008RAt the end of the year, Mr John Barr announced his retirement. John has spent most of his life at King's. He was a pupil here from 1957 to 1962, having travelled just a few metres from MacAndrew Intermediate. A stint at Corstorphine School and Lawrence District High, a degree in maths and science and John was back at King's in 1971, where basically he has stayed until now.
John has headed two departments, Mathematics and Computing, and outside the classroom has been most well-known for his role in managing and coaching basketball. In 1996, King's, famously, had twenty-six teams entered in the Friday night basketball competition. In 1997, the 1" V was ranked third in the country and, in 1998, was ranked second in the country¬a testament to John's enthusiasm for the sport. John was also heavily involved in basketball at provincial and national level. For four years he was on the National Executive of Basketball New Zealand and, for seven years, was President of Basketball Otago.
John has also contributed hugely to his community through his involvement in Jaycees and Lions. Affable, undemonstrative, knowledgeable, John has devoted much of his life to King's and we wish him well as he embarks on his well-earned retirement and his plans to spend more time with the family, to travel, to get into photography and music, the garden, the beach, the gym, reading, genealogy as well as continue his education in computing.

than we are giving Roger at the moment. Principally in the PE Department, Roger's contribution has been superb. Unassuming, cheerful and quick with a joke, Roger is missed greatly by boys and staff alike. He has had a heavy involvement in football, running our Academy for five years, coaching the 1st XI and being TIC of football. He also memorably achieved Chatham Cup success and five South Island League tides as coach of Dunedin Technical and three trips to Ireland for the Milk Cup with the Otago school boys' team. Good luck and best wishes, Roger.

DONALDColinRector/Principal2001 - 2008RIn just seven years Mr Donald has made a big impact. His first act however, was a small but significant one – preferring to be called just the Principal, rather than the older, stuffier Rector used at King's since 1936. Down to earth, hands-on, sleeves rolled-up, involved was the message we got.
Many Principals are liked and respected by their staff; some are also liked and respected by their students, some others, perhaps, by their parents or even their communities, their Board of Trustees and other Principals. A rare few are admired by all these groups and Mr Donald was one of those rare few.
Mr Donald knows boys, knows their needs, and has been passionate about boys' education, to King's very great advantage. Our NCEA results have improved significantly since he arrived; his desire has always been for King's to produce well-rounded boys who can appreciate a fine cover drive and fine art, the stage and the stadium. The boys have taken to this with enthusiasm.
King's Week wishes Mr Donald and his wife Justine all the best for the future and looks forward to his reports as our Special Foreign Correspondent in the Middle East.
Colin has been the Principal of King's for the last 7 years and his most visible accomplishment is the Performing Arts Centre. Having a PAC allows the boys of King's to show their talents in a setting that has always been their right, hut it was Colin who took the courageous step of getting it built.
But the PAC is by no means Colin's only success. ERO noted during their last visit that King's had a good feeling'; boys felt as though they belonged 'to a place that cared about them.' Colin is responsible for getting ERO to recognise that 'good feeling' and has worked hard to create excellent relationships with the boys, their parents and the staff This has imbued King'.1 students with a sense of belonging and pride in being a 'Kingsman',
Colin has certainly raised the profile of King's, within Dunedin and New Zealand. Getting the ODT to feature King's boys on the front page was certainly a major coup. People recognise King's as a school that not only produces great sportsmen but students who excel in the performing arts.
Colin has always given his time freely and has been a highly visible Principal, whether watching boys on the sports field or in the concert hall. It is this freely given time that has endeared him to the boys and they regard him as more than a Principal; they also regard him as a mentor and friend.

HAYMargaret A. [Mrs]Secretary-Typist to Executive officer1984 -Mrs Margaret Hay leaves us after close to 27 years. Margaret has been a huge part of life at King's and seen massive changes since her arrival in June 1984. She has been secretary for three Rectors, and one Principal, beginning when Ian Simpson had just taken over from Jack Bremner.
When Margaret first arrived, Dunedin State schools had a Board of Governors and the trendy 'Tomorrow's Schools' idea was still on the horizon; King's did not get its own individual Board of Trustees until 1989. It was then Margaret began her long stint as Secretary to the Board ofTrustees as well as her other duties.
Margaret had arrived at King's in 1984 from positions at Otago University in the accommodation office and secretary to the OUSA. King's looks vastly different now from the way it looked then. Virtually nothing remains of the school Margaret started in and the change in technology has been equally dramatic. When Margaret started, she sat behind a type-writer, not a computer. In fact, part of her job was typing up this very magazine. King's roll was tiny then, too, around 400, climbing to its peak of almost 1000 pupils in the mid 1990's.
King's has been "a great place to work" and Margaret says she has "always loved it". It is "a happy school" and she feels she has been "lucky with all the Rectors" and "good Boards"; without doubt, they all feel the same about their Secretary.
With the increase of technology and the advent of Tomorrow's Schools, Margaret's job has become far more demanding. Parents, too, have much higher expectations of their son's school now and the red tape involved in her job these days is 'huge'.
Margaret's commitment, integrity and skill can't be matched. We've all marched into your office with our demands over the years, Margaret, usually expecting instant action, often because we weren't as organised as you, and had left things until the last minute. When we deserved a kick in the pants we usually only got a quiet look and our quite unreasonable requests were met with your accustomed efficiency and good will. How we will cope now, we don't know. Thank you and best wishes, Margaret; enjoy your retirement in Wanaka.

LARKINSWarwick Norwood [Fox]PSports Co-Ordinator2001 - 2011 Mr Warwick Larkins, sports co-ordinator, is, of course, something of a Dunedin legend: a former grave digger, NZ Cricketer (v Holland), writer, and tireless worker for the Old Boys, raconteur and walking encyclopaedia of sport, especially cricket. Warwick, a pupil at King's in the l 960's, began working at King's as far back as the 1980's when he was assistant groundsman. He returned as Rick Mains' Assistant Sports Coordinator a decade ago, taking over Rick's job on his retirement. Warwick was always generous with his time contributing to a wide range of sports, including the unglamorous ones nobody else wanted, such as bowls and petanque.
His contribution to the 'old Boys, and therefore the school, has been immense - Secretary, President and currently, Vice President. He was made a Life Member in 2003.
Warwick no doubt misses the camaraderie of being at King's and we are missing his stories, wit and knowledge. Any day when you bumped into Warwick for a yarn about cricket was instantly improved.
Received NZOM in 2000 for services to sport.

PARSONSAndyTechnology- 2004Andy Parsons, good team man, unflappable, sly smile, leaves us, too, having been poached by a rival franchise, Logan Park where he has gained promotion to HOD Technology. Andy has taught at King's since 1990 mainly in Technology but he remembers doing Form 3 computing in B9 with one computer between two and when one megabite of RAM and Mac Pluses were exciting. Andy quietly and efficiently organised the King's formal for 4-5 years and always helped construct the Stage
Challenge and drama production sets. In fact, Andy's time here shows that if you stay long enough you'll eventually get asked to do just about anything, so he has also helped with: rugby, basketball, soccer, sailing, camps and tramps. The staff banter and morning briefings where 'you could usually find someone less fortunate than yourself being made fun of' are favourite memories. The kids'disharming honesty too has impressed Andy and, of course, working with characters like Garry Mason and Neil Andrews has always kept him on his toes. 'If you survived staff briefing you could never be sure quite how the day would pan out down there.'
Andy still laughs at thoughts of all the musicals he helped with. 'We always told Frosty the sets were ready to go, even though they hadn't been started. We only ever built them a couple of nights before the show because that was when he always changed his mind about the design, thus necessitating a complete rebuild if we weren't careful.'

SHIELDSDaryl L.Deputy Principal1985 - 2011 Farewelling Mr Daryl Shields, Deputy Rector, is, as they say, a 'rough ask'. Daryl and I go back a long, long way. We have caught next door to each other in two different schools, been colleagues in the King's English Department and shared much which is best confined to memory. When I began work as a Kermit-green 22 year old teacher at James Hargest High School, the stroppy young teacher next door, with longish, red hair, a passion for rugby, surfing and the Stones, was none other than Daryl. A fine disregard for pomp and pretension and an ability ro laugh at just about anything characterised Daryl then, and not much has changed, except for that hair.
Daryl, wherever he has taught, has liked and respected the kids, and they know that and appreciate it. He has been generous, approachable, caring, always prepared to help and still retains
that excitement over the simplest of things, the most modest of achievements in his pupils, that characterises a good teacher; just chat to Daryl about this year's Ul 5 Wildcats, read his contribution to the captain's magazine report or listen to his pithy Yr 13 citations at prize giving and you'll see the caring and enthusiasm is still there. Daryl has made a huge contribution to education in New Zealand and to King's, and we wish him well in his retirement.
