John Russell is a great boss. He knows how to have a good time but also how to be mean when he has to.

He sticks to his principles, like any good school principal (he is the principal at Lower Hutt's Naenae College).

He came away with us on school camp, got muddy, climbed trees and taught us lessons we couldn't get in a classroom.

Once he even gave our teacher flowers on Valentines Day, because no-one had ever bought her flowers.

He's a good school boss!
