After five years of being here at Gleneagles Secondary College, Mr Thorne has sadly decided to leave us. There was a gasp as Mr Thorne announced at the school assembly on Friday, 20th February that he was leaving his position as an Assistant Principal on Friday, 27th February 2015 to become a Real Estate Agent. “If you ever want to buy a house, come to me and I will help you out,” joked Mr Thorne. He also said that he was leaving to spend more time with his two daughters.
Our friend, role model, colleague, teacher and Assistant Principal, Mr Thorne will be missed. He was pleasant, approachable, professional and noble for advice or help and he was always there if you needed someone to talk to. So for that I and the whole of Gleneagles Secondary College would like to thank him for being an Assistant Principal and friend.
