#1 of 2: Malcolm. I hope you read this one day. From the comments here it sounds like you might be the Malcolm Bowling who taught at Marlborough Boys'/Girls' College back in my day during my 7th Form year in 1976 at MBC. You were, at that time, also the custodian of the Innes House boarding establishment which I see is no longer standing. You inspired me beyond your imagination and it was a pleasure to have you visit and stay with my family at our property down in Tory Channel.
No communication skills with students, not helpful at all and doesnt relate to pupils or help with problems. Shouldnt be teaching physics especially at an advanced level. very disappointed with his appointment and support from senior staff
really fun to make him rage but have given up trying to learn from him.
is extremely knowledgeable, but cant get any of it across
" goose's wigwam! ramrod! DUMBO!!!! "
One of the best physics teachers I have ever had. Always gave our class a crazy array of problems that required knowledge from all areas of physics
u teach mi brother.... he dusnt lyke u and ur blind u neva notice ani thing hehehehehehehe :}
He is greatly missed at Marsden! He always made time to explain concepts through with you, if you yourself were willing to learn. He's a smart guy and you're lucky to have him as your teacher. His quotes and stories are hilarious!
He taught us at Marsden and we were all so sad to see him go! Mr bowling is a great guy, with an awesome sense of humour ("Treat your vernier caliper gently like you'd treat your boyfriend") and the back row bandits miss him very much! Get to know him, he's a very interesting, funny man!
Good old Tenpin. Knows his stuff. Not a good explainer as everyone else has put. Although class is laid back, and I HAVE learnt something this year, Overall he is an alright teacher.
Hahaha mr bowlings a teacher?! We dont even have any notes this year! We ask him what to study for for exams and he says "electronics." Also tends to make us "chase the bell" cos it went 10 mins ago!!
well, bowling pretty much talks to himself and expects us 2 understand, i say bring back big T, aka Trev-Dog, the Tmister and Magical trevor!
Not a great explainer, tends to skip the basics and ramble on and on and on. Talks about stuff that you'd only know if you've done physics for the past 30 years, tends to teach pointless stuff.
good teacher,has a good sense of humour 2.you cant expect him to be fun if ur gonna be immature in class.he is a good guy,deserves a better job than teaching i reckon.is very helpful wen u"ASK" 4 it
Sir, you actually have to teach us, not just hand out printoffs or expect us to understand the NCEA text-books. not ALL of us have studied physics as long as you.
cool teacher,knows his stuff but looses his train of thought so easily,confussing himself&the class.interested to see how the speed of light can be determined by putting a marshmellow in the microwave
