I genuinely don't have the words to describe how awesome this guy is. He is ridiculously knowledgeable and never ceases to inspire his students with his love of science. He even went to the extent of going to my many dramatic performances. The only man I have ever met who has the ability to overcome the laws of physics. The force is strong with this one!
What a great lad. He teaches really well, just a great guy in general. We once had a sub instead of him and we all cried because he wasn't here. He has one of the sweetest personalities, and I love him very much. Great teacher xd
Simply a legend
Awesome. Just awesome
Legitimately one of the nicest people I have met in my entire life. His generosity extends far past the fantastic quality of his lessons and the work he puts in to them; he is always willing to help you out if you are not understanding something, and always shows nothing but complete respect for his students.
This man will not merely teach you science extremely well. He is a role model for his students in so many other ways; a true gentleman.
I never knew I would meet a teacher as good as Dr Haines in my school life. He is a teacher that should be placed on an alter for the whole Department of Education to see and for the mediocrity of Australian teaching staff to model themselves. Dr Haines is a teacher that explains things in crystal-clear clarity, who makes notes that one could sell for sums of money, who would have it no other way than have the whole class engaged in learning, who is easy going and who makes science FUN!!!!
had him 2 years ago and did well. hope he's my physics teacher next year
Always happy to help people out if they are confused, great guy and always friendly but managing to keep control. One of two teachers I would rate 5/5
fantastic teacher, actually taught me heaps while not getting boring. still remember the time he showed me how to hook a power source to my tongue
Best teacher in the school. Clear, concise and makes science something to enjoy.
best teacher ever. does what every teacher should aspire to do, controls the class through the true respect the students have for his intelligence, teaching ability, care for us and basically he is just awesome. sorry 4 making ur life hard, and dont worry - the course will change soon lol
Great guy, he'll lend you $50 if you need it, champion of champions HAINESSY SMASH
I left school years back, I still remember the good times with the Doc, best bloke ever, sharp and tolerent.
I had him in form 3 and to begin with I had pass with merits, by the end of the year I had my first distinction in SGS. Best teacher ever.
I had him for one period and he is simply the best teacher I have ever had. Friendly, clear and understands the course material. He deserves all the praise he gets from students.
Top bloke, knows everything about physics, has a sense of humour - best teacher at grammar
hes a great guy, very smart, knows exactly how to explain things, actually cares how you are doing etc 1 of the best teachers at sgs if not the best.
Dr H. was a really great physics teacher- beg him to be in his class. Sorry we talked all through 6 form. [year of 2005]
Good bloke. Always helped me out in physics especially because I had no idea. Probably needs some new shoes though.
Hainse is a champ, that guy is a genius, he deserves many a medal. Look forward to seeing you in the prefects master basketball game this year (2007) Hainse! [if you read this]
I began in science getting 65% and had no interest in science. But Haines showed me that i could have fun in science whilst still learning. keep up the good work
