Not sure what to say?

Mr Mann made my final year of high school enjoyable. His sense of humour and honest advice was always refreshing. He is in large part the reason why I stayed on to finish high school.

Mr Mann was my most supportive teacher. Chemistry was not my strongest subject but it was important for my application to uni. He backed me every step of the way and was always willing to give extra help or a motivational pep talk when I wasn't believing in myself. I was hoping to visit him when I graduated in the summer. This news was very upsetting, sincere condolences to all his family particularly his parents. I don't think I would be where I am today without the support your son gave me...

Mr Mann is a teacher who past and present pupils will not forget. He was a funny, caring and trustworthy teacher who made PSP a lot more manageable for our malleny class. He offered help with subjects outside of science and always expressed his care if we ever needed someone to speak to. Thank you for your hilarious and unforgettable stories and all the help you offered. One of Malleny's finest. Rest in peace and my deepest condolences.

Fond memories from the time you were born, through childhood and adulthood, memories of you learning the trombone will never be forgotten. You will be greatly missed by all who knew you. Now at peace. Our thoughts are with you, Ian and Sheila, at this time and always. Ray and Dorothy, Southampton

Mr Mann is one of those teachers that pupils remember for the rest of their lives. My son and daughter had a great rapport with him at Balerno, where he always treated them with respect, and found the time to share a joke, usually about rugby.
Sometimes, I would have the pleasure of his company on the side lines watching the school rugby team. We would reminisce about great Scottish and Welsh teams of the past, and it was obvious that he was interesting, knowledgeable and funny. I bet...

Mr Mann, you will be dearly missed. You had a great influence in both my academic and sporting life and I sincerely thank you for that. I couldn't have asked for a more honest or funny teacher. You were a good man.

The current and past young people at Balerno High School will be missing Dougals great enthusiasm for science. His teaching has inspired so many to achieve more than they ever thought possible. He was a great colleague to have worked with for several years. I will miss him.

God bless you on your onward journey Dougal - our heartfelt thoughts with your mum and dad and glad they will have the support of the many friends and family who knew and loved you. Long ago friends but never forgotten - Eileen and Geoff Jones
