It is with sadness that we acknowledge the loss of Les Scott a past principal of Christchurch South Intermediate from 1982-92. Les lost his battle with cancer and passed away peacefully on Friday 10 May.
 
Les was an inspirational leader who took the school through the significant transition from Education Boards to self governance under Tomorrows Schools. Les was a passionate supporter of education and the development of the whole person. He was a keen sportsman who enjoyed coaching school basketball teams. He loved music and the performing arts. Since retiring in 1992 Les has not missed a school production or showcase performance.   
 
He was the school principal during the school's 50th Jubilee celebrations in 1989 and was the Chairperson of the organising committee for the 75th Jubilee celebrations in 2014.
 
Thank you Les for your positive influence on our school and on the lives of so many young people and teachers during your principalship from 1982-92.
