Different Decades, Different Haircuts

We had a visit last week from old boy Richard Schumacher - seen far right, second row in his 1972 magazine shot.

It is always great to have old boys back on campus and Richard was able to have a good look around. This was even more appropriate given that he is currently the Principal at Central Hawkes Bay College, a role he has had for the last 8 years. Prior to that Richard had been the boss at Flaxmere College in the Hawkes Bay.

We did not discuss the hair policy at his school but it does give us pause for thought as to how fashions have changed. We also note that there were 11 students in Year 13 in 1972 - a little bit less of a handful than the 70 odd we currently have.
