Horrible man , has absolutely runied st marys , mr.murphy was doing an excellently job until this’s man took over ,school is so unejoyable , walks around the school on his phone looking for trouble far to strict hands out stages and suspension so over the smallest things,holds grudges but says he doesn’t , much prefer mr.sweeney a normal man who comes from a normal background knows what it’s like to be Young and have some fun with work amd study. Tom Nolan is not the man for st.marys

from my perspective,tom basically simplified the lc honours maths course as much as possible,constantly going over the foundations of procedures,ramming them into our heads.his strict ways were definetly necessary.
