Name of Pupil: QUASIMODO
Subject: Physical Education
Quasimodo is a talented gymnast. A genuinely bouncy character, he seems equally
at home on all items of apparatus.
His speciality, however, has to be the ropes. Never, in all my years as a Games
Master, have I seen a boy who could climb as quickly as Quasimodo: nor, for that
matter, be capable of swinging from one side of the gymnasium to the other without
touching the ground in between. Needless to say, he has been unbeatable at 'Pirates'
All in all an excellent term's work, with only one small quibble. On occasion,
probably because Quasimodo is such an enthusiast, he has stayed on the ropes long
after the other boys have gone off for their next lesson. Being ordered to come
down has clearly left him in a bad mood for the rest of the day.
It is important for Quasimodo to learn that, much as he would like to, he cannot
just swing around all day ignoring the bells; he must come down when he's tolled,
and not get the hump about it.
