A great man, awesome pedagogical skills and impressively knowledgeable about his subject. Difficult exams though.
Mr Haines is really cool. He is strict but easy to talk to and funny.
yeah na he is a cool TIM teacher. We have fun in class and he has a good sense of humour but nobody messes around cos he is pretty strict
He is cool. Great accounting teacher. Got me through NCEA Level 3 and scholarship last year. Thanks Haines
Haines stood me down 4 fighting early in year but was really cool about it. He wasn't real nasty like others but was fair and ok about it. Its like you want to behave good for him cos he's cool.
Yeah he is really cool. Most Assistant Principles are just nasty but Haines is fair and reasonable without being all snarky. A kewl guy.
He's the best teacher in the whole school. Used to be my ff teacher too
Haines is the best. There is no way I would have passed NCEA Acc without him. He makes it fun to learn stuff and he's cool even though he doesnt tolerate any crap. thanks Hainesy
He is a real legend. Loved the stories and classroom picnics, great guy helped me heaps and wouldnt have gone to uni if it wasnt for him. Cheers Haines!
Really cool guy. Firm but fair. Lessons are fun. Accounting with Haines is the best part of my day.

Mr Haines is the best teacher in the history of ashburton college. If he can get me to pay attention in class then he must be doing something right. but seriously the mans a legend.
Awesome teacher :) really knows his subject and always wanting to help those who want to learn and has no tolerance for those that disrupt the class.
Really wants students to do well and does everything he can to help you achieve. Classes are always fun cos he is cool and doesn't let bad people away with stuff.
Mr Haines is the best teacher at Ashburton College and i'd say close to the best Accounting teacher in NZ. I didnt like the dog story either but other than that he is great!!! :)
Scott was the best teacher i ever had at ashburton college and as the mediator of this site for ashburton college i'd like to say how awesome he is as a teacher and mate.
