John King

I was out for a meal with an old school friend and my daughter on Saturday and we discussed our school life.  I mentioned how much I loved Mr. King… he was the only teacher (head teacher actually) who tolerated me and let me get away with murder.  He would see me outside his office waiting for punishment on a regular basis because other teachers struggled with me.  I was never punished… I think he had a soft spot for the rebel in his early career.  I respected Mr. King and 32 years since I left school he’s the only teacher my kids know about.  It really hurt to hear he passed away.  My condolences to his family, friends, colleagues and anybody else who remembers him from school as being the fair, cool and hilarious “YOU BOY” teacher/head. Such a sad loss.
