Brian Thompson Inducted

It was our pleasure to induct Brian, accompanied by his wife Linley, into the Club last week.
They have two children, Nicholas and Sharne, who are both married with family.
Brian trained at Teachers College in 1974 and has had a life of teaching in many different and varied positions including being a Principal.
He also worked in the truancy area plus assisted with the closure of Avondale.
Brian’s main passion is rugby which includes having both played plus refereeing in Southland and South Canterbury.
He is also active in other pursuits including golf, bike riding, track racing and has done the Coast to Coast ten times.
Brian is an author of children’s books including one called Albert Ross which is about an albatross.
Welcome to Papanui Rotary, Brian, and we look forward to hearing more about the wide range of skills and experiences you bring to the club.
