He is a really nice teacher but very strict but very fun teacher
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.
Before I came to Salesians, I hated PE but after nearly 4 years in the school now, PE is one of my favourite classes thanks to this man. You're a legend Sir!
great teacher quite pushy but thats needed. bit hard on p.e equipment but just dont forget ! turns you into a man
Ahh fish - gave me a hard time but he had too I suppose
Sound teacher who will motivate you if you are willing to try but has no time for people who will not participate
only hassles those who dont try in pe. give your best and you'll get on great with him. great laugh. one of the good ones
This guy is a complete legend, a breath of fresh air. He does SO MUCH for the school. Road Race, Sports Day, school teams and he's a great teacher! From a man with an AMAZING goal.
those that rate this teacher badly are the ones who didn't try in PE.he's gonna give you hassle if you dont try just like any other teacher in any other subject
This guy is a legend...integral part of the school.He may be serious about his work but a little persistence+determination goes a long way in his eyes.Privilage 2 be taught by him
I was DIRE at sport - so he let me do my homework (SHHHH DONT TELL ANY1) - a legend
Luckily I was good at sport, but I agree he was hard on those no so sporting but overall I liked him!
Top man, the guy's a legend, Saliesans are lucky to have him. Where would the sports be without him? The road race?
A politician, but a good one. Genuinely interested in the school and students, an integral cog in the Salesian wheel. Good teacher, great guy.
Great teacher,Trys gettin every1 involved in PE even if it means lettin some1 do something different than d class!!excellent teacher
i felt sorry for the guys that he didnt like!tough man and best pe teacher in school.
Hes a nice guy, he tries his hardest at his job and only wants students to improve themsleves. Nothin wrong with that
I found Mr.McGovern to be harsh with me,but that's what you need-he'l make you into a man.Wise words he told me 'Be your own man'
I liked the way he did alternative sports..basketball etc. In hindsight he cared about his job which cant be said forevery one in every profession.
Brilliant teacher when he gets to know you an when you have all your P.E gear with you!! R.K
if you remember your flip flops he will be happy to teach you.
Very nice fella, if he liked you. I was lucky in that respect thank God. Good P.E. teacher but i often felt sorry for the fellas he took a disliking to.
Excellent teacher, Fish really pumped up the testosterone and competitiveness levels up in the lads.
great fella even with the cavan connection was a gret teacher
Easy going good PE teacher too pitty he dosent support Liverpool though...
good teacher knows alot about sports but does have his favourites
Those who say he doesnt like sports people only say that cuz they stood by d corner flag in PE and didnt bother even trying..Has respect for anyone who tries
Sound man but holds the occasional grudge and has his favourites.
Great PE teacher. Knew a lot about sports and encouraged you to try them all. Sound man.
great teacher and respects you if he knows you have done your best.He also takes time out to help coach the football teams.
Great Teacher, great motivator when it came to Athletics i wouldnt have achieved half of what i did if it wasnt 4 Paddys encouragement. Gr8 respect for him. DN
has his favourites and sticks by them. v.hard to get on with, hate PE classes with him
No problems with the guy. A little inclined to do badminton and basketball a lot in PE instead of soccer or GAA. Know his stuff.
If you like sports, he likes you. if you don't he'll hate you.
Great PE teacher. Got a good session every week. It was worth attending
Legend. People love him or hate him. Great football manager, them speeches are so epic.
Stricy but fair. Will deal out punishments, they will be strict, but dont say you werent warned. Good teacher.
