Did some really great things at the school. Pulled it up from where it was and handed it over in great shape.
My initial reaction to him leaving was very positive. However the last six months has been the pits for the school. Sir if you read this, please come back Mr Micknley has gone on an unprecedented power craze and no one can stop him except you.
Mr Burden's mere presence is enough to instill knowledge and education within my brain, as well as all of the traits of the MAGS way. I wasn't even taught by him but his commanding stature and enormous manhood is enough to intimidate even the greatest of men.
A real champ, he is certainly not a burden in my life.
good he is a very good teacher. he works very hard
Excellent headmaster. Obviously cares about more than the premier sports as the academic results continue to rise. Has had to make changes to the place as it was obvious that it was going nowhere rapidly. now its flying high and im proud to be there
one of the best teachersw ever a real winner and should stay very much alive yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
at least he makes decisions that meet the needs of the students first not just all for staff as the previous comment would indicate.....................................................................
hes a cool headmaster, even participated in cross country with the boys
always out in the school. Supports sport and not just top sports teams. knows the names of the students.
Fantastic Principal who has his eyes set upon the future. lt indicates promise and diversity which was somewhat lacking in our school. Too bad I will not be here to see much of it coem to fruitition.
he favours rugby too much not focussin on other sports and he shud try to acknoledge other important parts of the school not just sport all the time
not a very nice person. He favours only those who do as he wants. treats the rest badly.
He is always yelling at studnets and staff. He is very unpopular with the students
turns a blind eye to poaching at the school, let Mr Baker take the fall when school got caught, encourages rugby players to repeat 7th form until they turn 20.
Mr burden is a pretty good headmaster. he can be a bit strict but i suppose he has to to keep a good reputation.
He is TALL! I think he's pretty good, a bit quiet but nice to get to know. Made good changes (except the rule about guys uniform) to the school. Iv talked to him a few times and he seems like a really nice man.
cut him some slack..i think his pretty cool and made some good changes to the school..good job buddy
I agree that performing arts could certainly do with more recognition and funding. for example. concrete and carpet flooring isn't acceptable for the only dance classroom in the school. other than that, i think he's a great principal.
He strongly neglects the performing arts section. I dont think he is aware of the most important things that happens around the school. He can be quiet nice one you get to know him. He needs to understand and acknowledge peoples passion.
mr burden is a awesome principal and he makes things clear and respects people with pride he wears the mount albert shirt proud and tall. You rock mr burden we love you!!
Sir has taken over very well after ex-principal Greg Taylor and is very helpful too! Thanks Sir!
I agree that the school in gneneral needs to take performing arts more seriously. If Mr Taylor had stayed longer I think the shool would have been granted a proper perf. arts center as he actually recognised it. Mr Burden was pretty good to me, but I can see how he does have faves.
Quite an all rounded person to tell u the truth yes at times he may seem quite angry so wouldnt wna be in his bad books but most of the times hez a great guy and i respect him fully.
Mr. Taylor was a much better princaple and understood and handled problems to a much better degree. i personally do not like him as he looses his temper too easily. definately not one of my favourites =(
Can be sometimes strict and angry. Nice to know in person and is very freindly... wears his pride for the school.
although he may be heavy handed with his authority he also knows what he is doing and some of his ideas have worked well when implemented in the school.
