Its been a long time since Charles was at school and things have changed somewhat since then. However, in an attempt to recreate some of the atmosphere of those days we offer a few excerpts from Ronald Searle and Geoffrey Williams' Down With Skool!
|"Headmasters are always very ferce and keep thousands of KANES chiz moan drone. With these they hound and persecute all boys who are super like sir galahad."|
|"With a croak of rage he grasped his kane and rolled out cursing in the name of Beelzebub. He gave six of the best to every boy on site but I am glad to say that the prunes were all drowned in the duckpond."|
All excerpts from Down with Skool! written by Geoffrey Williams and illustrated by Ronald Searle. First published by Max Parrish, London 1953.
