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.
He is a god walking among humans
Yes an awesome head mastet
He is the Patron god of the fair city of Rhana.He is the Patron god of the fair city of Rhana.
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'
I believe he is the foruth coming of christ, the man is a freaking genius, loves his school more than he should. it will be a sad day when he retires.
I have no idea what he talks about in assembly. He is a good sort though.
RUGBY RUGBY LINEOUT MAUL. ALright Boys im not going to talk about rugby this assembly but first id like to mention that the 1st 15 won their game in the weekend. haha top bloke tho
HE IS TOO SPORTY! HE DIDN'T EVEN SHOW UP TO THE PRODUCTION THIS YEAR!! HE'S SO FOCUSED ON SPORTS! HE NEVER TALKS ABOUT THE ARTS IN ASSEMBLY..IT'S JUST RUGBY RUGBY RUGBY!
For the last 5years, the only time i saw him were when he was in assembly, talking and when he was running around the school with a weight on his hand
this guy is the man!! he knows whats best for the school and he's the hardest working man at shirley.first to arrive at school, last to leave.hats off to the guy.keep up the gud work champ!!
umm he's ok, He is Good at twisting the situation so that he's got the advantage. He can be Real Hard to get on with, but he's ok. I'd give him below average as a teacher
any one who bad mouths jbl are complete chumps hes the man a little eccentric bu the man none the less
The goatee just takes the cake. The second you see the man you know that he's a brilliant intellectual! Heads up to Grandad.
Champion if it is possible to win an award for a headmaster he should win he is such a powerful speaker and just a nice guy he is the BEST by far headmaster
SOOOO passionate about the school, great headmaster!
Pretty solid headmaster, although the communist undercurrents of his assembly speechs are a definate turnoff
Good Man loves to get involed with his school and holds good princples.Gud on yah
Good man doing his best 4 the S.B.H.S comunity, made me fell welcome on my year 8 interview. A cool guy. Go Johny!!!
hey man why have a student council that does almost NOTHING for the students ... it sucks ... (>'.')>
Never seen someone so passionate about s.b.h.s(probly cause most of us don`t want to be there,even some teachers)At school walking around starting his day while normal people are tucked up in their comfy beds.That must be commended
'Legend'would sum him up quite well lets the people know who shirley boys really is
Very good headmaster, knows what he is doing. the only headmaster I know with an open door policy.
A wicked principal really makes you feel passionate and proud about old SBHS.
he is a very respectable man and delivers great speech every wednesday. i could say he's one of the best headmaster in NZ.
A good guy, a bit rugby orientated, but a really solid guy
A very good headmaster. Probably the best in New Zealand.
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).
Talk to much and does not know what he is saying most of the time .
good that he is out in the school most days instead of pencil pushing
Mr laurenson is a great headmaster and is really commented to the school
I have been to many High Schools around the world and Mr Laurenson is the best Headmaster i have ever met by far, enough said.
mr laurenson is a very inspiring headmaster and is very cool at the same time. the best headmaster i hav had so far
always in the playground talking to the boys is very positve and and encouraging an excellent roll model
