I have lost most of my respect for him as when a Year 10 student took her own life, her mother came in to talk to us and he kept talking over her, and didn't allow her to speak. He is a cool guy but yeah he now has to earn my respect back
I had him when he first started at riccarton high school as a social studies teacher. I thought he was great! hes a nice teacher, i guess it helped that i played rugby and lot of sports, and also he coached our rugby team. but nice guy, i also remeber being on late report always and having to come to the DP office.. haha..
Nice guy, generally friendly and not too obsessive about the rules, but still authoritative.
I havent really got to know him much. He is dedicated and makes us feel better in school. He is a great person if its about sport or music theatre
I admit that I don't really know him, but the only time he's acually made any effort to talk to me, other than replying when i say hello as I pass him, is when me or a group of us have won a competition, then he tries to make you feel like you're best mates and he's so proud of you...not great. Though I do think he's doing a pretty good job as principal, i think he needs to be a bit more in touch with students
great teacher and principal would be good if he lightend up on hassling me bout my uniform thought and put me on the feild a bit more for big games just jokes heda man
He's a really good principal who is very passionate about his school! I loved his speech about the geese...that was ace.
Mr Holstein does a good job as principal. Most of us do not know him at all on a personal level however, so I suggest that if you're going to give him a 1-1-1 rating then you should back it up with some supporting facts.
Cool principal, dedicated to his work and the students of the school :D 2 many speeches about sport and rugby... but nobodies perfect. Apart from this hes awesome!!
brilliant,brilliant man-an asset to the education system
Mr Holstein is approachable and cares about the welfare of his students. Riccarton is very lucky to have him:).
