He says the job will allow him to
use the leadership skills he has
gained at St Peter s.
I am fortunate to have watched
boys enter the college at 11 years
old and grow up into outstanding
young men at 18.
He says after working there for
14 years he will miss the warmth,
strong sense of community and the
St Peter s staff s unconditional sup-
Mr Hogarty says he will always
remember cheering on the sidelines
of sports games, coaching teams to
national victory and watching
countless boys graduate.
St Peter s headmaster Kieran
Fouhy says Mr Hogarty will be an
excellent addition to De La Salle.
His wealth of experience will
prepare him for all situations. De
La Salle will become a school St
Peter s will be very proud to be
linked with, Mr Fouhy says.
St Peter s graduate Byron Hodge
says Mr Hogarty s departure will
leave its mark on the school.
He was the teacher we were all
scared of, even though he was
pretty harmless and actually a
really good guy. He was strict but
fair. We all liked and respected
him, he says.
Mr Hogarty organised and
participated in a number of activi-
ties at the school including fairs,
fun runs and the rowing club.
His role as associate headmaster
meant he was responsible for the
day-to-day running of the school,
while the headmaster represented
the school within the community.
Mr Hogarty will leave St Peter s
on April 27 and start teaching at De
La Salle on April 30.

Pulling trucks, loading rocks and
flipping tyres isn t something
you d expect to see blokes doing
in central Auckland.
But you can expect it at the
Strongman competition at the
Coca-Cola Easter Show this
weekend at the ASB
Showgrounds in Greenlane.
Strongman and accountant
Nick Hansen is a regular at the
show, having competed for the
past six years.
The Remuera resident won the
competition last year and says
the event is a great spectator
You don t get to see this sort of
stuff very often. The guys give it
absolutely everything. You can
see the complete exhaustion after
they have finished for the day.
Mr Hansen says strength built
up from training for the compe-
tition comes in handy.
The activities you do [in a
Strongman competition] are more
applicable to everyday life. You re
testing your strength, endurance
and your stamina, he says.
Easter Show spokesman Paul
Blomfield says he hopes the sim-
plified pricing and the attractions
will draw more people to the
show this year.
We wanted to remind people
of the wonderful experience the
show can be. We want to bring
Auckland back to the show and
back to the experience they
remember when they were kids,
He also says he wouldn t be
surprised if this year s show is
the biggest yet.
The Easter Show s pricing has
changed this year so all under-
12s get in for free with a paying
The line-up includes many free
activities and will be featuring
the 100% Kylie and Looney
Tunes shows for the first time.
A day pass is $25 for adults
and $10 for students. Carnival
rides range from around $2 to $9
