very hard to approach. only ever talked to him shaking his hand for random awards. but certainly makes it feel like an achievement shaking hands with him. but all in all, very respectable man.
he is a really good principal, it is just a pity he doesn't communicate with the students more. He has very valid, useful opinions, and has made a great impact on the school. It is a pity that he's leaving
I think the only words Dr. D and I have ever exchanged were when he said 'Well done' when I was receiving this award. elusive is definitely the correct term for him. You feel special to be in his presence, his height also helps him demand respect because you are physically forced to look up to him. Brilliant man. As I don't know him that well I'm not really sure how to rate him, I'll go by what feels right.
Gordon Donaldson deserves to have 3 buildings, 2 rowing boats, and the school named after him. He has rebuilt the whole school in the short 25 years and is one the school's greatest principals! He is elusive, and he is highly respected in the school community, by parents, teachers and students, yet after a few conversations with him, he is very approachable. TOP BLOKE! I hope we get someone like him for our new principal and not somebody like Paul Sheahan (principal of MGS) GOOD ON YOU DR D!
ahh flash gordon. great principal. best bit was when he said blah blah blah in assembly. pity dr dre is leaving at the end of this year, well be sad to see him go.
Id have to say I think hes the best principal Scotch has ever had, does a fantastic job. Never leave!
One of the greatest principals scotch has ever had, well done mate
He is extremely elusive, hes so elite, thats its an honour to be in his presence
Very nice man. He knows me by name and we have had numerous conversations over the years and I am only a year 10 student. Was fantastic to see him come and support our team and take the time to watch me individually whilst playing my singles match in the 10A1 tennis team this year. I have plenty of respect for this man..
Nice guy, but if he is a nuclear scientist, why doesn't he teach pyhsics???
someone who is admired by the school as an incredibly intelligent man. Perhaps the fact that he is so elusive is a good thing, because if you do get to speak to him, you feel special.
I chatted to him once when i was playing soccer and he as a very approchable and nice guy
Does a lot for the school. Don't be ignorant, just because he doesn't know you personally... Gordy also enjoys listening to "RAP" music and often sings Eminem's hits during the hyms in assembly.
thinks he is pretty good, loves spending our money and going on holidays and occasionally turns up to assemblies if it doesn't inconveniance him to much.
I can say I've spoken to him, several times actually and I'm only in year 10. His a very nice man and a very smart man. His happy to talk with someone at camps (as I have) aswell as other events
A nice guy, but can anybody honestly say they've spoken to him? The term 'elusive' is appropriate.
