Having been a student at Shirley Boys before, I had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Laurenson. I believe that he is a man that many of my fellow students would aim to be like. He handled all the hardships faced by the Feb 22nd earthquakes in a manner that not many people could have.
He is an exceptional man and i would happily send a future son/daughter to him to be taught.

Maybe if he wasn't so blinded from his self-admiration he would be able to see the school isn't what it once was. I'd probably get along with him well if he ever took the time to get to know any students who aren't his warped definition of 'leader'

His speeches are at the height of glorified oratory. Outlandishness and rugby are rife in every aspect of his school life. But it is his philosophies on life that are at heart of his brilliant personailty and style.Top quality.

Generally a good guy. Can sometimes go on about irrelevant things, but usually gets his point across. Dedicated to all aspects of the school, maybe a little too much when it comes to Rugby though.

How could you possible knock Big Johnny B? JBL should be a prizewinning headmaster. Many many Wednesdays I have sat transfixed by his fantastic oratory (ie. the ma-hee-yarna speech, the woeing-woman speech and the numerous poetry readings).
