  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Michael`s school report by Louise on 27 August 2003 4:32am
This is from a book called `Could Do Better - School Reports of the Great and the Good` which was compiled in aid of a UK charity The Dyslexia Institute. It`s published by Pocket Books and is a jolly good read! Here`s our man`s:


Housemaster`s final report: There are doubts beginning to creep in here which have been noticeably absent from his work reports of the past. I very much hope this is a passing phase. Mr Brown tells me that it appears he has easily passed in Geography - a very commendable effort in so short a time . There may be a vestige of truth in Mr Charlesworth`s last remark. I too have noticed symptoms of the same sort of thing, a slightly put-on manner of affectation, perhaps a sort of aftermath of his fine performance in the School Play. We`re all for a bit of jollity and mild eye-flashing business, but he must not try to get away altogether with this slightly facile manner. He has the makings of a splendid person. Let him ensure that his foundations are thoroughly sound.

Headmaster`s comments: I think he is just a teeny bit pleased with himself - or so I am prepared to hazard.
