Walter van der Kamp

Amazing, what you come across on the web! Here's a photo of my grade 7 teacher, Mr. Walter van der Kamp. He taught us to think for ourselves and not easily to accept the status quo. He was a philosopher, a historian, a poet (look at pp 433-35 of the Book of Praise) and a great teacher of the Bible. He also insisted on good manners and neat penmanship (my Achilles' heel). "Kampee" was a great though clay-footed man who went to be with the Lord in 1998.
