So, he was everyone's favourite maths teacher, I liked maths, he was always energetic and fun. However, after being absent for a flu or something, I had fallen behind and was a bit confused, no catch up nothing. Had to leave the class to a different course essentially, the only reason I passed maths in my leaving was an evening course l took myself. Sad to say if you weren't from a certain few areas and of a certain religion, you didn't matter in that school, extremely bullied there, ruined. FUA

Mr Maxwell taught me back in 1977. He was quite exceptional. Introduced me to computers and I now work for Dell. Very grateful.

Had him in 3rd year for a couple of maths classes when our teacher was off, they still stand out in my mind as the most informative and enjoyable classes ever.. and I hate maths. His ability to command the attention of a class was unreal, a man with real charisma. A very sharp minded and warm person.

I never had a class with Mr Maxwell, but in my third year in the school I needed to talk to him about something (He was vice president then.) I had never spoken to him before and went up to him and he looked at me, stopped to think for a moment, and then recalled my name and class from memory.
