PD is the best teacher I ever had. He inspired me to further my education in history and I now have a Bachelors degree. He was also entertaining and funny, but also very knowledgeable and experienced. We always had the best banter and I looked forward to his classes. Hands down the best teacher at HGHS. Sad to see him retire, but wish him well.

It seems Alan doesnt change over the years. He recognises great attributes in people and believes in their ability.

Mr Powdrell is such a nice teacher. A bit annoying if your not used to his way of teaching or if you can't prioritise your own learning.

Mr Powdrell always got me a muffin on my birthday. He always put up with me disrupting the class and pulling pranks on him. Always happy towards me even when I messed around all the time. Love him !
