Mr. Lawrence was the principal of Degrassi Junior High School. Joey Jeremiah, Arthur Kobalewscuy and Yick Yu were frequent visitors to his office. He began every school day with a thought for the day, which usually included a pun.

The character's voice was provided by John Bertram, who remained uncredited on-screen.

Mr. Lawrence was never seen, or even glimpsed, during Degrassi Junior High but his voice was heard both over the PA system and coming from his office (which on the set was actually merely a crawlspace).
