Thank you so much for the introduction to this recording! I've just purchased it on Audible. I love your story of Mr Jones! I hope he went on to find a school where his teaching gifts were put to full use and appreciated!! As I listened to the recording I couldn't get the image of the headmistress charging down the corridor out of my mind. In retrospect, how hilarious!

Such foresight, such narrowness, all under the same roof. What a difference a good teacher can make. And much better I imagine than those educational programmes on the wireless, although I do think they taught us a certain stillness.
