Average; is to distant from his staff - many have never even spoken to him. And if He doesn't work with his staff were does it leave us , the students. Needs to work on more truthful communication.
Cool headmaster when u get to know him right? but he only prefers to get to know high achievers or good looking ppl, for gods sake we;re all the same?? but yea, a sweet teacher when u get to talk
He thinks he is great but don't trust him He wouldn't know the truth if he fell over it. He needs to learn to communicate with teachers and us.
Great public speaker. Can sometimes keep weekly assembly listening to his talks *cough*Mr Ronayne, Mrs Strang*cough*. Handled swine flu very well. Is a positive influence on the school. Possibly could have handled the ball situation with a second more thought, now year 11 this year (09) don't get a ball, even though they didn't do anything. Guts. Talks to students is a friendly and happy attitude, not overbearing etc.
Handled the swine flu incident well, is a credit to his school. keep up the good work
Like his speeches, they have real meaning. I have great respect for him. I think if he associated himself with students more that would be great so that he isn't seen as the big fella in charge who sits in his office communicating with his students telepatically!!! Thanks Mr Hodge
Dis guys da man. but only cause he has da same last name as me to except for one letter difference. i hardly c him round though
He doesn't care about us , onlyabout his own image. Thinks hes cool but hes not.
Wow, ok, one way to cure insomnia is to just sit through one of Mr. Hodge's assemblies... At least Mr. Peachey's speeches were short, sharp and got to the point... Mr. Hodge drones on and on and on and on about I don't even know what because I was asleep half the time...
he is a gud princible but bein a 3rd former i think he should try mingle with us students and try get to know us. 2 run a gud school i think you need to do that..
MR Hodge was my English Teacher in Mangere College back in the 80's, he was a teacher back then , not a principle so I suppose I have a different perspective on him, he was cool and could relate to us, maybe you kids on the shore dont appreciate him like we did.
Funny at assembly how he talked of Floyd Landis winning tour de france and all. About how he got through all the hard work.....the next morning, floyd failed a doping test. haha
He seems to be very passionate when he speaks in assembly.However, it doesn't matter if we like him or not.Stop talking to us like we're four and convice us your good at your job.We'l respect him 4 it
I believe he will take Rangi through its next stage of success. He is also taking a very great role on for caring for his new school, reflected in yesterdays atrocities.
while Mr Peachey was sometimes overally dull, Mr Hodge doesnt seems to 'know' what he is talking about. He tries to be popularist but he is just not funny
some of his comments made in assemblies need justification, as he cannot sway a bunch of teenagers to beilive that the music they listen to is 'junk' and 'turns you brain to mush'... nice tho
he is sooo boring! he just drones on and on in assemblys and he creates a great speech and all that but he is juz sooo boring! us 4th formers find him a bore and in assembly we ALL fall asleep or tlk!
he's the man, but he could never beat the snake story by mr peachy that was legendary
I think it's great how he is out and about in the school talking to students all the time, although Peachey did a lot of work to get us to where we are today!
hes made excellent contact with us the students.. however i do think some of these comments discrdit peachey whch is unfair because he made us wat we are.. go mr hodge
A definite change to Mr. Peachy. He actually makes an effort to be out there in the school community, unlike the giant peach, of whom at times treated the student body like a group of lepers.
I love you speeches in assembly, they are always motivating and funny. Better than Mr Peachys
I do agree about his recent comment in the school news letter. "Too much sport is bad for the mind". Perhaps some justification behind his statements would help. However, i respect his efforts
Way better then Peachy, seems like a very nice guy. But I disagree with some of the stuff he says, like the recent newsletter. But a nice guy, and seems to be doing his job well!
Way better than Mr Peachy. Actually cares about the students, and stays for the whole assemblys, and shows greater respect to the students than Mr Peachy did. Good to see him out and about also.
Seems like a funny guy at assemblies, has way better stories than Mr.Peachey. He is pro-soccer as well, that's awesome. Go the hodge-meister!!!
