Cliff Edmeades was the best teacher I ever had. He taught English, was deputy principal of Orewa College in 1980.
He let us wear our uniform properly, now we have to tuck in our shirts and pull our socks up so tight the material nearly breaks.
He makes the effort to get to know the students, he knows most of the students names. Pity he is leaving. The new principal has a hard act to follow.
He has been an awesome principal and will be missed by everyone. He has really sorted the school out and i hope the new principal can carry this on
he is really understanding of students, able to relate to them and always has heaps to talk about!
