College founder dies High standards: Russell Jackson, pictured here in 2007, was Waitakere College's foundation principal. He died on February 13, aged 84. By CATHERINE HEALY Waitakere College s foundation principal Russell Jackson, described as a humble man with high standards, died in Tau- ranga on Sunday aged 84.Mr Jackson also served as a Waitakere city councillor between 1992 and 1995. Current principal of Waitakere College Mark Shanahan says when Mr Jackson was appointed in 1974 he had to create the school from the ground up. The Ministry of Edu- cation had bought a vine- yard and an orchard for the land. They used the cellar for assemblies and the teachers used the old house on the site as a staffroom while the school was built. Mr Jackson, his wife Joss and their seven chil- dren lived on-site in the caretaker s house for the first year. Mr Shanahan says the school s name is one of Mr Jackson s legacies. The ministry had other ideas for a name, but Russell went to the community to find out what the school should be called and came back with Waitakere College, to reflect the Waitakeres, the streams and the hills. He s also respon- sible for the school s emblem, which reflects the three streams in the area. Mr Jackson qualified as a chartered account- ant. Mr Shanahan says he was a humble man but a hard taskmaster. He was very forth- right in terms of his ideas about education. His other legacy is that he s the yardstick I aspire to as a principal, to keep producing the best possible young people at this school. Foundation staff mem- ber and former head of technology John Kidd says Mr Jackson was the best principal he s worked for. He was special, as all principals are, but being involved in the start-up of a new school is quite something. The school had a fan- tastic reputation and when visitors came from overseas the ministry would tell them Waita- kere College was the one to see. One of the things he worked towards was building an assembly hall -- and that building still carries his name. Mr Jackson was prin- cipal until 1987. He visited the school in March 2007 to fare- well Mr Kidd s wife Glenys who was leaving the school after serving as a PA to all five Waita- kere College principals. Mrs Kidd remembers him as an absolute gentleman and a total professional with a great sense of humour. Mr Jackson was also a member of the Hender- son Lions Club and a keen lawn bowler. A contingent of Waita- kere College staff and pupils attended Mr Jackson s funeral in Mt Maunganui yesterday. Condolences for the Jackson family can be sent c/- of PO Box 8139, Tauranga.
