This genius of Pisces was educated after the Punory period was over, by himself and himself alone. He forsook the calling of the Carpenter of Nazareth for that of a pedagogue. He gave active service to New Forest Anglican, Bohemia Canadian Mission, Edinburgh Scots, and Sheet Anchor Anglican Schools respectively in this country.
After he had secured his Third Class Teachers’ Certificate of Competency, he sat for the Second Class. One day, when the results in the Official Gazette were published, he looked for his name in vain in the Second Class list. He failed to look up the List above. Quietly moaning his apparent failure, he was aroused by the cheering voice of a comrade, who greeted him “Pat, Congrats.” He said – Why must you mock me? The retort was – “Look in the First Class List for yourself.” It was found. He burst the Educational Thermometer of the Second Class and landed himself at the zenith of salubrity.
