Mrs Brett
Blunt Brett

for the following year (79/80) we had a new staff member - a Mrs Brett, who was known as "Blunt Brett" because of her forthright manner - the only examples of which I can recall are:

1) Her advice on life beyond the Salvatorian: "Remember boys, there are some things even penicillin can't cure", and

2) A top-notch bitchy remark about a male teacher: "Well boys, [pause for effect] he's hardly the answer to a maiden's prayer now is he?"

Excellent - but haven't a notion what the questions were...
