An Old Boy Address
Pictured above is FDMC Old Boy Tim Naish who was kind enough to come along and give the keynote address at our annual Academic Colours assembly. Tim finished his time at FDMC in 1983 and has gone on to a very distinguished career in science. He is currently a Professor at Victoria University and is the Director of the Antarctic Research Centre and an expert in the field of climate change.
Tim's address to the College was very well received being a mixture of warm reflections on his school days and sage advice to the students on pursuing their academic passions.
In all 47 Year 11 and 12 students received colours for outstanding success in last year's NCEA exams, a total that seems to grow every year. We can but hope that at least a few go on to contribute as much as Professor Tim Naish.
