He's rather strict but very nice and knows all the students by name. However his speeches can drone on a bit...
Larne where'd u go mate
Fantastic! Possesses very clear vision and has high expectations. Good
very strict. i know a lot of people that are scared of him
I've been very impressed with Larne and his team. My children started at Parnell this year and they love the school!
A great principal
He is nice and friendly.
As a Principal, he does a pretty good job. No birthday card though...
An excellent Principal and he leads by example. Prepared to listen.
vg principal. gives out birthday cards to students which is kinda cool
very hard working. couldn't ask for more from a leader of a school really
Mr Edmeades is a great Principal. He supports students, teachers and families.
Mr. Edmeades is a great principal and he makes the school a right place for my child's educations.
Larne Edmeades is a Principal who genuinely cares about the welfare of our children. We have made the right decision in choosing Parnell College for their education.
Demonstrates strong leadership and works tirelessly for the school.
Fantastic principal. Mr Edmeades does a great job at the school.
Excellent head of school. Parnell is lucky to have someone like him heading the leadership team.
Mr Edmeades is the best principal and the most caring of people.
He's an excellent principal and a strong leader who likes to keep informed.
Mr Edmeades is a really good principal. He does a really good job at Parnell.
MR EDMEADES IS VERY KIND AND APPROACHABLE PRINCIPAL. I WAS LUCKY TO FIND THE RIGHT SCHOOL FOR MY CHILDREN.
Mr. Edmeades is a great principal. I like the birthday card he gave to me at school. I enjoy my studay at Parnell College.
He is a great principal and he makes the school outstanding. My daughter loves Parnell College very much and she has learnt a lot here.
Great principal, always approachable and smiles a lot. Mr E has time for ppl and that's really good. It makes us want to go to school as he's always saying to try things and enjoy our learning
Mr Edmeades is very approachable principal. He always encourages students to do their best. I'm impressed with the great job have done by the prefects of the college.
A truly wonderful Principal. Great relationships with parents and students. Can't rate him too highly.
GREAT HE IS THE BEST PRINCIPAL EVER AND HE IS VERY LAYED BACK AND KEEPS THE SCHOOL UNDER CONTROL AND HE DOES A GREAT JOB WITH STUDENTS
Cld do w seeing him out n about a bit more during breaks bt still good. B'day cards cool :)
Pretty good, told my mate off the other day 4 rolling bottom of his shorts up but was good about it. Had a laugh n got his point across. Fair enuff
He makes the school special as all students love the college.
Encourages students to have a say in what goes on in the school
An absolutely fantastic leader! Someone who you can without a doubt look up to!
A really inspirational principal, but honestly doesn't get the respect and appreciation he deserves. Always there to help out and get involved. Such a genuine person. Give him a break people!!
Great guy, always smiling, always up for a laugh and can be very inspiring.
Best principal of any school i've ever been to. He's so involved in everything within school life which is really cool. He makes a real effort to get to know the students and he's what makes Parnell s
Solid, reliable and can have a good laugh along the way. -J
hes a genius and has changed the school for the better for ever
i think he likes to control others and trys to over power stuents and parents.
I think Mr. Edmeades is a very caring Principle. He oftens come around to the crossing after school - at least he used to (I left)
He reminds me of the penguins of Madagascar. Just smile and wave (and pretend to care)
just wants to make money. he doesnt care about us - couldnt be bothered coming to the drama production. keeps raising the fees! he sends cards to us though - but forgets me!!!! every time!!!
Cut him some slack he has to watch parratts fantisies
Yeah hes alright, we could have parratt running the show. Think of it how long has parratt been vice principal. Edmeads is pretty cool in my opinion
I thought he was okay but then realised that's coz I never see him round school which is bad - he's the principal after all. And I agree - if he was really academic-focused he'd offer scholarships.
You are the nicest Principel I have ever had. Keep on doing a great job Mr Edmeades! :)
He's ok, but he has weird ways of teaching. His speeches are boring too! But he's a smiley nice guy.
He didn't make Miss Harvey stay. Bet he could have. Infact, I bet he made her leave.
He is creepy, bad at public speaking and frankly I don't think he is in control of the school at all. Mr parrat is the authority figure at our school - and look how much we like him...
hahaha I wonder how many of these comments are from teachers. He lets Mr Parratt run around the school and destroying the students sense of individuality..not good at all.
he lets mr parrat run our school it pretty weird he's always smillin haha he's pretty nice thou he just hasnt got a clue
We don't need no THOUGHT CONTROL. Leave these kids alone!
He won't be remember for being an amazing forward thinking Principal. Other Principals on this site have excellent ratings but Mr E. is just ho-hum at his job. Not inspirational.
Definitely too strict. And most of his policies haven't been that good, like his assessment policies, uniform policies and the awful PDA rule... at least he tries to keep the place running - his job.
Too strict. Says we cant even change our clothes after exams. He also thinks the school is a buisness, not a school. Hez also very boring. Ms Irving was way beta!
He's a bit odd. His speeches in Assembly don't come across well. The school's boring because of him because he won't let us have lots of things. We don't go on camps. There are no school trips.
seems to have strange beliefs about how the school should be run. Tries to make certain things as difficult as possible (UNIFORM). A born businessman/bureaucrat, but a painfully mediocre principal.
rofl...so many of the comments about this guy are clearly from the teachers! Lol, watch your back Larne!
