Bro. George was the principal of St. Geralds while I was there. He was small, passionate and aggressively enthusiastic on behalf of his students. He instituted compulsory study periods Monday through Friday from 5:00 to 7:30 P.M. every week. We also had school every Saturday morning supposedly to make up for the exercise period every Wednesday afternoon although I don't know if it was Bro. George imple,ented this. One of his "reforms" was a voluntary class after school, in calculus, taught by Bro. Vincent who was also the science teacher. I think it was available to intermediate, matriculation and leaving cert. students which is why Tim Murphy and I were in the same class. To my dying day I will remember Bro. Vincent's inability to explain, and our inability to comprehend, a function designated small s let alone its meaning. Tim's voice, exuding great dismay, was continuously heard to ask "....but what is s Brother?".
