The Headmaster for my last years at Immanuel College recently passed on from a short illness. (previous references here and here)
Contrary to popular memes, I have nothing but fond memories of Mr Volk, or Noel as he preferred I called him in 2005.
Mr Volk was one of those highly influential people in my life. He was one of a small handful of people made an impact on my persona, from an intellectual perspective. A learned man, he daily demonstrated that geeky people mattered in the world. A great man.
Ave, Mr Volk. Noel.
Thoughts are with the Volk family.
Update: November 2008: I have a scanned copy of the obit from The Advertiser
(thanks Mum for the sad info)
One thought on “Noel Volk”
I was a student of Noel Volk’s as well (and just did a google search on his name after hearing that he had passed away – your website was the first one I found). I respected Mr Volk immensely and my thoughts are with his family.
