A Visitor From The East

It was great to have a visit last week from old boy and past staff member Mark Chamberlain.

Mark is currently traveling NZ on a book tour of schools. He has authored a number of books aimed at a teenage audience and was able to hold a big group of our students enthralled with excerpts from some of them. At least one of the books is set in a place inspired by FDMC and its characters, although names have been changed to protect the guilty.

Mark lives and works, both teaching and writing, in Saudi Arabia but he also has a home base in Northland and does a lot of traveling besides. He estimates he has visited at least 40 countries at various times.

As always it is great to have old boys come back and share their wider world experiences and we are hoping Mark may be a more regular visitor in the future.
