Mr Colquhoun is the BEST teacher for history at PPHS. Not only does he care about each student, he really tries to make history class engaging and fun! He is the reason I really like history and want to do a history minor in university. Thanks Mr Colquhoun! **Ask him to tell all of his stories, especially the ones about his cousin and brother!

Honestly the best teacher I've ever had. He was so knowledgeable and made a history lesson seem like one long story. After a year I still remember almost everything I learned in that class. He was also a fair marker. Overall best teacher at PPHS!

The BEST teacher ever, mr colquhoun brings school back to what it should be, learning, not struggling to force yourself through every class, his class makes you like school, not only that, he is also really great at teaching the material so you actually learn and remember it, and with all of this he doesn't mistreat his students ever like so many teachers do now, teachers often disrespect students because they're teenagers and it's become a norm that's not ok, I wish every teacher was like mr c

Best teacher I have ever had! He doesn't favourite, he will joke around and become every student's friend. Very good at explaining things, lessons are great. Although if you miss a lesson your screwed his notes suck. Go to class and you can easily get an 80% skip and your most likely looking at a 60%. Hardly ever do textbook work, and there is never a dull moment in Mr. Colquhoun's Class!

He just knows how to teach. Enthusiastic, witty, smart and we never even used the textbook once during the entire semester. The best teacher at PPHS by far.

Colquhoun, you go out of your way for students and we appreciate it so much. You really care. You are a fantastic teacher, very thorough and knowledgeable of all politics and historical facts. I love your storytelling! You are one of those teachers that you leave high school appreciating that you were honoured to have them. I will miss you very much, you are an amazing teacher and a great person. Thank you!
