He is a businessman who recruits his teachers to suit his own personal criteria.He is incapable of identifying passion and experience.He runs the school like it's his business. Teachers hates the management there.He is a very eloquent man with each wother experience that's all. He has been a major cause of many experienced teachers resigning.He doesn't care at all.You will only be accepted at Avondale College if you're a puppet.Please don't have your own opinion as you will be forced to resign.
He is a very good principal
Useless excuse for a principal. Always drinking coffee and watching tv in his office. Terrible human
He boasts about students too much, it's annoying and we get the damn thing -.-
His natural leadership over a staff group is nothing less than satisfactory. His capability in this position is evident through the results which the students at Avondale College acheive.
He is a vulture, a school should be run like a school, not business
People who have negative comments do not know him at all. He does a great job at one of the hardest jobs in the country. Representing a bunch of whiners.
I felt soo distant with him even though I was a prefect and met him frequently
I am a former student. The guy does his best, but essentially he's a business man. Instead of taking all his overseas trips to recruit more teachers he should focus on students and the staff he has.
He's there before we get to school and is still there hours after we all leave. He's there in the holidays and on the weekend. Works extremely hard for our school whether you thank him or not.
I think as the principal of Avondale college he does a Very good job I amonly a forth former at avondale and dont know much about him at all but I think as a fair judgement he is a very good principal
He needs to shorten his speeches, which lack any substance. He also thinks the school "runs smoothly" when really it's a complete mess.
Every time we have spoken he has been rude. He thinks he is some amazing guy, and that everyone else does not deserve respect. he is false
to me, hes just some guy who walks into assembly, talks and goes out.
what an inspiring man. a wonderful principal who goes the extra mile for everyone. Supportive and has avondale on the right track. Shot Sir!
The uniform needs to sharpen up. Other than that he does a great job, and is an excellent leader.
mr lewis is a good guy I saw him at the cd shop once, give him some credit he is coool. :D and he like sour bring it on group
Quite strict and focuses on sport needs to calm down. He is ok as principal but could be loads better could follow examples from some other schools in things like uniform and policy but he could be worse.
You people are all being to harsh. So what if you have to wear uniform you can't hold the man responsible for everything that happens at the school, sporting success will always be favoured over academic ones, but thats not evident only at avondale it goes back along way, I guess it is historical really when you won the battle with brute not words. He tries his best, really, he does and you can tell, think of all the lovely speeches he has given. Quite a funny man, really.
dont understand why people dont think he is a good principal. He does all the jobs extremely well. If he could make an improvement it would be by interacting with the students a little more
his speaches inspire me to be a better person. really, they do..
i totally agree that he pays to much attention to sports and he says that Avondale College provides opportunities to all areas , yea that is the sporting areas. the brainy students dont get any opportunities at all. just try comparing our school with auckland grammer , epsom girls grammer or macleans college which recieved 3 premere scholarships. Avondale seriously has sum catching up to do.
He pays too much attention to the sports in the school and does not acknowledge or provide many opportunities to the acdemic achievers in the school. It's time he introduced cambridge to the school
A very fair man. I have found him an inspiring role . Genuinly cares for students.
he is very very very nice and helpful. he may be strict on uniform but he is only trying to discipline us before we are released to the world.
hes too strict.....doesnt like many students, too much emphasis on uniform standards rather then more important things
