After the final day back in 1991, I did my bit at Cambridge Uni training to be a teacher (putting something back in and all that!). I taught at St John's Choir School for two years where I was assistant Housemaster looking after the delightful choristers (!). I then spent eight great years at Dulwich College teaching a class of Year 6 boys and running the PE and Games in the Junior School.

Whilst there, I spent a year on a teaching exchange surrounded by sheep and kids - well, in NZ (managing quite cunningly to ensure it coincided with the traumatic experience of the Lions tour!) before returning for a year to Dulwich. The lure was simply too strong though as King's Prep, the NZ school had offered me a PE post.

Many may remember my kid bro Tim - he had been here for 5 years and loving it. I write this now whilst overlooking the Hauraki Gulf and Rangitoto volcano (quite dead though!) with the sun pouring across the water. Tough eh?

Still painting and have written a childrens' book - hope to be selling 5 mill by next year!!!

Be great to hear from my year - we had a good time eh..?!
