  • Obituary
    MR. I. F. MCDONALD - The death occurred on Saturday of Mr Ivon Fraser McDonald, headmaster of Mt. Cook School, aged 60. Mr. McDonald was born at Waipu and educated at the Whangarei High School. He began his teaching career at the Whangarei public school and entered the Auckland Teachers Training College in 1915. In 1916 he volunteered for the N.Z.E.F. and saw service in Egypt and Palestine. He was severely wounded and returned to New Zealand. After convalescence he resumed teaching at Glen Kelvin. He married Ellen Margaret Angland, of Gisborne, and for seven years he was stationed at Te Awamutu. For two years he was headmaster at Makauri, Auckland. At the time of the Napier earthquake Mr. McDonald was first assistant at Nelson Park School, Napier, and he was highly commended, for the work he did at that time. He went to Rotorua for a year and then went as headmaster of the Tinwald District High School, Canterbury, for three years. He came to Wellington in September, 1937, and went to Shannon as headmaster. He was posted to the Berhampore School in the same capacity and in February, 1939, he became headmaster of Mt. Cook.
    Mr. McDonald, who was very popular with his colleagues, was keenly interested in all educational problems and in affairs relating to teachers. He was always ready to assist others and was a hard worker on committees. He was an active member of the New Zealand Educational Institute, and since 1940 had been on the national executive. He was a past-president of the Wellington Headmasters' Association. He is survived by his wife, a daughter, Mrs. R. J. Banner, Wellington, and two sons, Messrs. D. F. McDonald, Otago Medical School and M. J. McDonald, Wellington. (Evening Post, 1 May 1945) Public - Sandra - Researcher - 29 December 2018 - Papers Past
