Roly has a session with his educational psychiatrist and is told he has to go and see a dietician. At the rehearsals for the School Review Janet tries to talk to him, but in backing away from her evil clutches, Roly steps through the scenery. Gripper tries to see if Roland really can roll, and then Roly gets grief from his mum over the state of his clothes. Gripper's demands for cash have now reached the point beyond Roly's means. He tries to fight the bully, but his blows are ineffective. Someone writes a message about Roland being going to a shrink on the blackboard, and he slinks off home. The following day Roly feigns sickness, but he's not fooling anyone. School seems a formidable place, and Roland turns round, and stays at home. His mum turns up, and angrily escorts him back to school. Once again, Roly bunks off walking home despondently. Oblivious to the world, he steps out in front of a car... Written by Geffers
