Seems scary at first, but he is actually the complete opposite. He knows a great deal about music, I'm glad he does relief for music.

Mr Cook was awesome, i was always in his office for something or another... by the end of my school days, he would just invite me in and we'd chat normally, he didnt really care in the end... AWESOME!

Don is a political animal. He panders well to the whims of the department and seemingly always tows the line. I know he may have deep seated reservations but, to his loss, he does not let them show. He is, however, quite a nice person and is good as a strict administrator. It would be prefferable, as the previous comment alluded to, for him to have remqained a de-polticised music teacher.

Takes censorship and muffling of free speech to the absolute absurd. Should be a music teacher.

I agree that he sometimes pulls the phony legal stunt, however it is clear that he is a good force within the school (except when it comes to student free will). He is, overall, a good guy.

"Well now- I don't want to keep you from your teachers giving you all the HOMEWORK you have to do tonight.." *Chuckles from parents and sarcastic jeers from students in the crowd* ALWAYS said by Don during the new year speech

is really cool- he accompanies the music tours and events and is a real quirky guy. I do agree that he seems to be a control freak, and is so absorbed in the rules that it clouds his moral judgement!

Has SIGNIFICANT gaps in his legal/ education Act knowledge. This flaw disallows Mr Cook to progress to the next level of Deputy-ism.

Been scared of this guy for 5 years, noticed times when he has laughed, and realised now that he is a funny but firm guy, a real asset to the school along with the principal. Excellent guy

I have alot of respect for Mr Cook, because he scares me. I get on well with him, but when it comes to discipline, I'll agree that he has it down to a T. <3

Wonderfull guy, brilliant administrator and THE ultimate head of dicipline... I mean, when you want discipline you want scary and he can pull off scary to a T. He is also a really great person.

An amazing pipe-organist and music educator, and a dedicated Deputy Administrator. A fantasic man who has visions for the running of an orderly and peaceful school. His presence scares gangsters too.
