I had kinesiology with him, for the first two months of school I was absolutely terrified of this dude, he would walk into class and I just didn’t know what to say. But as soon as he’s earned everyone’s respect he’s the best. He is extremely knowledgeable and one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. He respects you as much as you respect him. He has no problem going over something until you underestand. He is absolutely amazing
Makes you work hard and i'm not complaining about it. He's just an aussie tryna get mates in shape
If it wasn't for Mr. Purchas i would still be weak and chubby. complete life style change thanks to him! worked everyone hard as hell but nonetheless he was an amazing gym teacher! P.S. don't put your hands anywhere near your mouth when in his class :D
He was a good gym teacher
lemme tell you a story about Mr. Purchas, he is gonna be the best teachers you will have and the funniest. If you piss him off, good luck in the grade.
PURCHAS IS SO PRO... JUST DONT MESS WITH HIM!!!!!!!!!!!
funny teacher!!!! had him for 3 years, he is a little tough on niners though
STREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEETCH! definetly one of the best teachers i've ever had.
Mr. Purchas is nice even though I never had him, my bf said that he is nice, and hard working, he likes Mr. Purchas as his teacher because he makes you work unlike some of the other teachers.
He is very strict. Before every gym class, we do about a 20-30 minute warmup of non stop warming up. Pushups, figure 8's, situps, staaa-jumps and pulse rate. But i have increased my stamina by quite abit because of how strict and tough he is. I never though i could run 12 minuntes straight.
he is a pretty good teacher. He doesnt only mark on skills but also on effort.
Great gym teacher, it takes forever for him to get through the attendance. And like the other ratings given, he IS like a drill sergeant. Overall, an excellent physical education teacher.
Good gym teacher, if you get to know him better he is really nice
some time very dumb... but nice guy.. easy going too...
He's like a drill sargent!!!!!!!!!! But overall, he's a great gym teacher, and he uses dirty words in health classes that crack students up. Just don't get him mad.
This guy is a good gym teacher, he just lets you play the sport instead of teaching all the technical stuff.
he is a very good teacher and he provides an excellent workout in gym class and is very nice if we listen to him and he is kinda cool cuz he picks on some ppl.
not bad great athlete teaches well and talk 2 us like we talk 2 each other wit slang and stuff.
Always gets mad at me for not being able to hear him. Not a very good teacher.
If you wanna get abs of steel he's your man. Great exercise. Be nice to the guy and he'll treat with some respect. Great guy i'm gonna miss him
OOOYY MATE KEEP YOUR FINGERS OUR OF MY SOUP!!!!!!!!!!
not sure about him, sometimes cool, sometimes hates me. iffy.
people, this is one of the best teachers i've ever had.
Had David at another school, made us do 5 sets of 20starjumps,pushups, situps before everyclass. Really good workout. Overall he was a good teacher.
good swim coach, i like how he watches n corrects- really helps, shows he cares
good teacher, sometimes really funny, brutally honest though
