Derek Donohue

Attended: 1981 – 1990

Best Memories:

The lovely atmosphere and sense of family amongst staff and pupils. I miss the Cathoic ethos.

Favourite Teacher: Ted Murphy

The most talented (and sometimes most annoying) music teacher I have worked with.

Most Interesting Experience:

Arriving back at my teaching practice school the day after getting the job at S.H. When I announced it the staff room went silent. I was so busy doing my PGCE I had not heard about the 'industrial action' which had only just been resolved. Of course nobody thought to mention it at my interview! Anyway, it all turned out very well.

What I do now:

Head of Mathematics, Sir John Thursby Community College, Burnley
