OD and author, Robin Cox (1972G) and his wife Jane visited us at The Mitre

OD and author, Robin Cox (1972G) and his wife Jane visited us at The Mitre. He gifted the ODU four of his well-known books about adolescent mentoring, mentor training and education. These are now part of our OD library collection should anyone want to pop in and take a look. Robin was Head Prefect 50 years ago in 1972! 

Robin also vistied Principal Tony Reeler to discuss mentorship at the School. 


I developed a youth mentoring program and worked for some not-for-profit organisations in New Zealand and Australia setting up youth mentoring programs, training over 1,000 volunteer adult mentors and also training students as Peer Mentors. In the early days I ran conflict resolution workshops and workshops to encourage teenagers to become the best they can be. I run a website ( on a voluntary basis to encourage anyone working with teenagers, the focus being promoting the spirit of mentoring. I have also written 6 user-friendly books to promote the Spirit Of Mentoring for teachers, adolescents, mentors, social workers, youth workers and anyone interested in encouraging adolescents to become the best they can be.
