"I remember the name of a
lovely teacher at Stockbridge Primary School. It was a Mr Younger.
He was so kind and gentle,
and very encouraging. Due to various family problems,
I was ‘off school' for a short while when
we first moved to Stockbridge, which left me a class behind, but when it
came time to sit for the ‘Qualifying Exam', he
was concerned enough to make sure that I sat the exam and got to Bellevue
High School at the appropriate age and time.
I always remember he wore soft,
well shined, leather boots. He was a
teacher of the ‘old brigade’ who seemed to really enjoy what he was doing."
