After the merger, there's a certain residual allegiance to the old Brookdale and Rodney Bennet schools. Gonch Gardner meets Calley (who's brought pet Percy to school), and immediately falls into trouble with Mr. Smart, not to mention Paul 'Hollo' Holloway. There are other new starters too - e.g. the formidable Mr ("You, Boy!") 'Charlie' Bronson! Would-be hard man, Trevor Cleaver has difficulty stamping his authority. Is the music teacher really Paul McCartney? The usage of two different buildings causes stress between Mr. Smart and Mr. Bronson. Gonch's proposed fight with Hollo turns into a friendship, and Trevor Cleaver isn't so hard when he discovers that Calley's pet isn't the fluffy hamster he was expecting! Written by Geffers
