He is a great Rector and in this case strictnes and obstenity with morals and values is a good thing. He is epic and it is sad to see him leave Boys High. Auckland Grammer is a lucky school that is in for a culture shock. Garters and Hair cuts for the Win!

Fits the school and what the school stands for. However, looking back, I strongly question these strongly traditional values and I think the school overrates itself. We live in 2011, PNBHS is in 1911.

Even though I go to Girl's High, I've met ol Tim, and he's a realy nice guy! Who cares about not having chicks around, or mufti days! Get over it I reckon guys. You could be a lot worse off than you are! And as for the being grumpy comment, wouldn't you be grumpy too if you had to babysit 1800 teenage boys who complained about no mufti days?

one of the reasons why this school one of the best in NZ is cuz of TOC, yeah at times, his ego need to be turned down a notch, but otherwise a great role model.

Alright. A good person, a little misguided and quick to temper. And the fact he can't confront someone personally and has to do it via Post-It notes doesn't help (he knows why).

Toc is on a power trip and needs to be taken down a peg or two. Him and The Anti-Fun Gestapo (Senior Management) ruin just about everything, his policy of 'education first' is a joke (i.e. Prefects)
