11 years after leaving Salesian college as an un-supported E student, i am now a successful ecommerce entrepreneur and multiple business owner. I owe this to the fantastic school i moved to in 5th year and the support i recieved there. Paddy McGovern is a lovely man but the school had so many problems during my time there. To all the kids who hate sport, dont worry about it, its all part of being in school. Once you enter college you will find your way and your individuality will be encouraged.

Completely patronising. I'm not the type of person that's into sport and he knows that. He makes a big deal if I touch the ball and he does it to everyone who isn't interested in sports.
