Thanks for nothing.

In any event, his name is Nic Williams, not Charles, as was established many years ago by the late Tim Watkins. It's the name in his email address and Tim found some quotes from Nic Williams, in the Croydon Advertiser. See Neil's post in To view the link you have to Register or Login

I used to be jealous of Paul at School. He was bright, good looking and never got into trouble. I only discovered the full horrors of what he went suffered (in the privacy of Solomon's office) when he came to stay with me a couple of years ago and told me all about it. I knew a bit about Solomon from first hand experience, but I was not prepared for what he told me. He was a recovering alcoholic and had suffered numerous breakdowns. He is now dead - as is Solomon.

It's a pity there is no God. There was no justice for either man on Earth.
Terrible story James, I am fortunate that most of my times there were good ones.

I moved up to the 1st Year in 1974 from the 'Juniors'. It was a nerve wracking time for me, as people who remember Mr Jones will testify, he could dish out the good old fashioned whack on the hands - and I was expecting a lot worse in the Senior school.

But James' last couple of posts reveal that I was lucky to have been around a bit later than some of the monsters that were obviously masquerading as teachers before my time there. We were probably quite nasty in our way to some of the more 'gentile' teachers - but when you see James posts and realise what was going on at the school, it leaves me cold. These days, the likelyhood is that one of the pupils is going to inflict major damage on somebody's life.

My son came back from school yesterday and said that one of the SJC boys had slashed a kid from Stanley Tech on the neck with a knife - and the S.T. boys were coming up to Beulah Hill looking for revenge.

Not quite the same thing, but sobering to think that there is still a bit of evil about that needs sorting out.

Paul was a poet and he wrote a number of poems which helped him cope with his memories. He sent me a signed copy of his book 'Truths of the Unremembered Things' just before he died. It's a desperately sad read and well illustrates the torments he had suffered.

Here is a copy of the book and an extract:

I suppose this partly explains my distaste for Catholicism in particular. I believe that the Order has only recently admitted that there were some serious problems in the School during the 1960s - but for years the truth was denied and covered up.

I was raised as a Catholic and had the faith pushed into me for years at School. Although I am now an agnostic (leaning heavily towards atheism) I am still left with that fear and guilt that Catholics are burdened with for life.

I still look back at my years at SJC with a smile - plus a lot of all when to college/university after that - so I think their record is excellent.

Now where can i buy a ice cream with a rocket lollypop shoved into it?

Yes started a year later and have to agree with the sentiments of your post.

we had some good laughs, messed some teachers around, got into a few scrapes but generally life was happy.

My class loved the inter form matches and tried to recreate football style support at water polo, 5/6 a side football and the like. I think one of the teachers described us as not the most academic class, but certainly the most united that he had taught at the time.

My son goes to St Joe's now, but it rankles with me that the Head has decided to change the uniform to maroon jackets with maroon jumpers - talk about 'old school tie' - I understand Mr Connolly (SJC's Headmaster) is also an AFC Wimbledon fan - so now, we now longer have 'Penguins' running the school, but a 'Womble' instead!
You must have been two years below me.

Same year as Chocky, or a year below him?

Brother Charles - he taught me to play Chess and started my life-long passion for mathematical games and puzzles. I beat him for the first time when I was in the lower sixth and he hugged me!

He was also very good on the billiard table as well. He would often pause in mid game to talk about Newton's Laws and how they were so relevant to billiards and snooker.

Lovely bloke - very clever and a superb teacher.
