Thomas becomes a School Teacher!
10 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

November 1910

Sarah gets a job as 'Matron' in a small private school for boys.

Whilst there, she becomes popular with the students and gains their trust. The boys' whose parents are being ripped off by the Headmaster with fees for lessons and teachers they don't have, confide in her. Treating them as she does, Sarah also gains their respect.

In the meantime; Sarah arranges an interview for Thomas for position as 'odd job' man, but at crossed purposes, he's inadvertently employed as teacher! The two - then jointly - coupled with the help of some of the head boys expose the school for what it is.
