The best there is. The best there was. The best there ever will be.
An excellent teacher and very talented man. I don't know why he still appears on the website because he's now retired.
Roared at students all day. drilled the subject into you. But you got good results. I think he was to good of a teacher for greenhills.
Some whinge about Deco being strict. Most of us respected him 4 being in control.
Deco has 2 b 1 of de pioneers of Greenhills College. Wish dey were all like him 2day
classes were always interesting due 2 his personality
Deco was fair with all students. He didn't suffer hellraisers gladly so any former hellraisers will probably try to get at him by cheap hits and low scores. The overall ratings speak for themselves!
some have a problem with rating Deco's easiness. It means is it easy 2 learn n his class not that he's easy going!
he is the king, the king of kings bow down to the king.
Happy memories of Mr Collinge. Strict but fair. You knew where you stood with him
Funny how de last hit saw Deco as 'just okay.' This is probably revenge because he was a strict teacher and never gave hellraisers an inch- unlike other teachers. 'Easiness' means being easy 2 learn n his class. Hello?
Had Deco in the 80's didn't think much of his teaching skills. Thought he was a tough guy. Got B all the same
Deco's retired now and it's only now we realise what a leg the guy was!
Declan was our housemaster in 1977! Class LX1. He was also my Geography teacher. Possibly the best teacher I ever had. Tough but very fair.
I wonder why he's still on the site since he's retired
