Mr Rae, helped me get Achieved Minus at year 10 silent reading. Probably my favourite and best subject. Thanks to Mr Rae, I didn't even study for my silent reading exam, still beat Max Finhurst. If you are interested in history, ask him about his experiences in the Napoleonic Wars. I can only hope he will be teaching NCEA Level 4 Food Technology when I'm in re-sitting year 13 for the 3rd time.

Mr rae is the bomb, he taught us about when the Germans penetrated into Russia's nation. He is so swagswag that some people even say that doritoes and mountain dew were created from his magical brain powers, which he uses to fight crime.

Slightly 'different' which is good by most people. His vast life experiences and never waivering entuhsiasm which comes straight from his eyes is great. Can be easily confused. Can be taken for a ride by some students which is a great pity as he is a genuine good guy. Smiles as wide as a dinner plate when he puts onMicheal jackson 'man in the mirror' - Haha goood tyms. In all fairness he is actually very knowlegeable, its just he has a very sporadic memory nad conveying ideas to the class can be strained.

LOVES talking bout the Army which is always fun to hear. One day he burst into Tourism saying "THE SUPERBUG IS COMING!!!!" and now the class openly hassles him for it even though he doesn't realise. He's awesome though even if he did sign off my book as 12/05/2003 last week. Can't get enough!

He's really there to support under-achievers. Manages to work around the elitism problem that management seem to support. A real battler and an asset to the school.
