Wise, fair, thoughtful, a good listener, supportive at all times. Bryan was my ‘Boss’ for twenty-nine years, the major part of my teaching career. It was a privilege to work with him and to share his values and aspirations for all at Borden Grammar School. He forged a family-style community where each member felt valued and cared about individually, whatever their role. I shall always remember the many lunchtime chats I had with Bryan, on a very wide range of topics. He was The Boss, and also a good and trusty friend.
