Was in Mr Burns class for Geography in De La Salle to Inter Cert. Very knowledgeable and with a natural aurthority. Don't recall him actually disciplining anyone but even the class hard cases seemed t
"time to go time folks!" great man, it's interesting to read here how his fairness seems to have been the thing that gained him respect. he was no push-over, but you always got a fair hearing. Thanks Mr. Burns! P. Ryan
He and I never saw eye to eye, frankly. and not just because he is shorter than me (or most people, for that matter). he could never bring himself to call someone wrong either.
Spent plenty of time in his office but wouldn't hear a word against him. Top bloke
Your not right but your not wrong either'... your halfway there.. i can see where your coming from. Such encouraging words. And an everlasting tan too!
we've had run ins over the years but now that he's retiring i can honestly say he'll be missed.rock on burnsie.rock on.
the only missing anecdote is the nose blowing on proper hankies - v loud! couldnt have experienced better teaching anywhere
why didn't he become principal? The school would be a better place!
Brilliant teacher - also had a PE class with him in 1990 which was hilarious...couldn't find a better man or teacher..encouraging, supportive & kind
"lets say this then" the man is not just a teacher but a friend as well
Legend. Listen to him say 'Tu Two Two Two' and also his trademark 'Lizard' where his tongue comes out for a second. Very funny. Great teacher.
Pride of the school many miles still left on old tyres. But don't ask people to define kip in geographical terms
A good bloke, fair even when getting serious hassle by us cuz we were idiots
please tell me he is not still using THAT SAME GEOGRAPHY BOOK
Stallion. Lord. Legend. Stallion. Has patented the terms "The ol' forgot the copy book trick" and "What do you think yourself there?" B. Sheane
Hop you still flick the walls whilst walking bad boys to the office.
Very few down through the years would have anything bad to say about the man. A true gent.
der is noting i can say absolute fantastic man, the king is right! what a hero
