From the first day of his appointment, Mr 
Herby Arnott threw all his energy into building the reputation of the school and improving its facilities.  He was dynamic in his approach to all school problems and needs.  Into all the scholars who passed through his hands he instilled a high esprit-de-corps, pride of school, and code of behavior, thus imbuing them with the best ideals and an urge to be good citizens.  As a dedicated educator, Mr Arnott had a deep understanding of human nature, particularly of the youth, which was coupled with a keen sense of humour.  The affection and esteem in which he was held by all pupils, parents and general public is indeed proof of his unique and outstanding headmaster’s qualities.
