A group of students from Douglas Community School celebrated their teacher Brian O’Connor’s book launch by organising a party. Mr O’Connor has been teaching economics for over 30 years, and last summer felt it was time for him to commit his expertise to paper. The book Positive Economics is published by Edco, and can be found at High Street Books, among other bookshops. The group of around 60 students, made up of the Economics students in the school, organised the party with the help of Business teachers, Mr O’Sullivan and Ms Carter, not just to celebrate the book launch, but to recognise the dedication, undoubted passion, enthusiasm and prowess that Mr O’Connor has for the craft of teaching.
