Prevalent among a younger generation of teachers is the belief that the labours of teaching are great and its rewards disproportionately small. This cannot be the view of Arnold Lorie, principal of the Junior School, who retires at the end of this term after almost fifty years of dedicated service to the young. Mr. Lorie has revelled in his work and it is his enviable lot to retire in the knowledge that he has shaped and guided the emergent personalities and talents and sensibilities of thousands of young children, to many of whom he has been the medium through which they have passed to richly fulfilled lives. Generations of Wynberg boys will recall with gratitude and affection their association with Mr. Lorie and will join with us in wishing him a long and happy retirement. To Mr. Oosthuizen, vice-principal of the Junior School and now Mr. Lorie’s successor, we offer our congratulations, and take this opportunity of thanking him for his invaluable services to the High School.
