He's okay; but he'll soon catch you out if your not putting 120% effort into the subject and shred your skin off slowly until you bleed out and die a slow and painful death. But he's pretty good for the first few hours of the school year.
Knows exactly what you have to do and communicates it to you. It is impossible to have a bad page if you are asking him for help as as long as you follow his guidelines you cannot go wrong. The one thing is that if you try to cruise and don't spend the extra time the he will rightfully harass you and either pull you up to the stander ex or the offender will end up quitting from the pressure.
MR BOURDOT IS THE MAN, he has helped me sooo much i owe so much to him, his jokes are so dry but hes still one of the greatest teachers ive ever had and if he likes you youre good to go
Mr Bourdot is such a great teacher. If you haven't had him before, you would think he's strict, and mean. But if you've had him you really know how good of a teacher he is, and how much he pushes you and supports you to do your best. Ps. He also gives you Moro bars at the end of each term. Double yes.
Mr Bourdot was an exceptionally great teacher. He pushed each student with the same amount force to make them achieve their greatness in the field of graphics, even if the students didn't like him at first but in time would appreciate his brilliant teaching skills.
I may have dropped out in the last year which i truly regret but i still use his teachings in my life to this day.
Cheers Mr Bourdot for your wise advice.
Paul Bourdot is probably one of the best teachers in New Zealand. He achieves results, just look at some of awards his students have won. His no-nonsense approach to teaching works. By far the best teacher I ever had. Works huge hours and sets a very high standard for both himself and his students.
More of a facilitator than a teacher, shows you techniques in example books and then leaves you to work it out. Is a fun leech. Workaholic, has never had a fun day in his life. Struggle to enjoy school under him. ODD.
Has an odd teaching style. Yet it works.Graphics is the only subject of importance to him though and doesnt take other subjects into consideration.
he is one of the oddest guys i have met, always coming up with random sayings and things. overall hes really good and helpful when it comes to making your creativity span thanks mr bordot
Mr bourdot is probably the best and smartest teacher in the school because he is the man at what he does and is very helpful at times!
Great Teacher. In my opinion one of the best at the school.
He was my favorite teacher from all my school years, very strict but we learnt alot.
My name is Greg Mitchell ,
I was a student in Paul Bourdot's Tech Drawing & Woodwork classes & would just like to say THANKYOU .
Regards ... G S Mitchell
mr bordot is the most amazing teacher there is. im so glad that i got him this year. he may be strict but i got exellence for my yr 9 project so all good
BEST TEACHER EVER!! hes amazing at what he does!! Wish i was in his class again!! Hes such a gud person!
Operates on the highest standards of quality, determined focussed, demands and deserves respect. Is capable of finding the potential in students whom are willing to work within his methods
He it very helpful when your stuck he is funny and kind when you get to know him and he can be very strict
Fantastic teacher, bizarre personality, brilliant combination. 10/10.
Definitely the best teacher i've ever had. got nearly all excellent in yr 12 graphics. and i now regret not chosing graphics in year 13
Strict to start with, knows everything about his chosen topic.
Yes very strict, particularly in your first year, but he is an excellent teacher. Will teach you everything you need to know.
Don't lean against his $2 million wall. I had him for about 2 weeks in junior school. I was afraid to breathe. Which is why I dropped graphics soon after year 10. He does know the subject though.
I was in Mr Bourdot's graphics class for 5 years. He starts off strict but loosens up after a while. He's the best teacher I'v ever had and knows his subjects inside out. Cheers Bourdot
He is cool and dosent have huge hissy fits like all the other teachers.
Mr Bourdot was my teacher for 5 years, from 3rd to 7th form and without his awesome ability to teach i wouldnt be where i am now.
Mr Bourdôt was the recipient of the Education Service Award 2003. Hes commited and willing to bring out the highest award winning qualities of graphics students. He likes his $10,000 carpet clean.
Very strict in class, but at the end of the day, you get so much work done. This guy obviously knows his stuff, and at the end of the year, you'll probably want to thank him.
