Talked to him at one point when I was considering leaving early in 7th Form (Which I did), and he was very helpful. He was a truly great principal, and very deserving of respect.
I could have never asked for a better mentor leader or principal in all my school years By Michael buckett
Although he was (is at this point in time) the principal of TBC, he took my maths class for some time. One of the best maths teachers I ever had!! Really nice guy!
I cannot understand these other reviews,he is a great principle.He has given us all these great facilities to use at school but his own students can still dis him too much. His assembly speeches are okay,the new hall and theatre will be great! (except the rowing machine room was demolished for it)
He is the best principle that TBC will ever have. People who don't like what is your point. He has brought more opportunities to TBC students than anyone could ever hope to. If art people want recognition to better at national level like the big band.
Graham Young is a fantastic principal, you just have to be on the right side of him. But that goes without saying for any person in society today. You can never have your cake and eat it too - if you want respect from another person, give it to them first. Graham would probably agree.Top guy.
To be fair he cares about any student that makes his school look good, its just that it's way easier to do that in sports e.g. he's all for the Big Band when they are achieving nationally, & supports the top 15 or so academics & maybe the top arts student, & forgets the rest. Great calc teacher!
He is a great guy cant beleive what you guys have said about not supporting the academics and artistic students that it totaly untrue. Probably the best pricipal TBC will ever have.
Does he ever do anything apart from travel? Assemblies get a tad monogamous "good man" every time. The Arts' students are students too! It'd be nice to recognise us students every now and then.
"unfair, dosn't spent enough time with students. all reputation" - agreed. Also doesnt care about academics - only sporting.
graeme young is insightful and knows what it takes to be a good man. He is great principal total. Keep rockin' on Graeme YOUNG!!!!!!!
I heard he was against this site. Fair enough. His assembly speeches were all right.
He is the best principal in NZ for sure. Defienlty gets involved sporting wise and gives out a great deal of support
unfair, dosn't spent enough time with students. all reputation
