Storyline

School cuts are being noticed, what with the lack of a Technical Drawing teacher, and book shortages. The Computer Club wants to buy a new computer for £1200, and the PTA tries to come up with some fund-raising ideas. A "Sponsored Spell" is on the cards. Can Gripper spell any other word than "G.B.H"? Gripper sees the text book shortages as a way of earning money, getting his supplies from St. Mary's girls. He ropes in Pogo as an unwilling accomplice to sell them. Unfortunately, Gripper's muggings have not gone unreported, and a spot inspection by Mr. Keating brings the sorry business to an end. The money raised towards buying a computer gets used instead for buying new text books. Written by Geffers
