Another sadistic French teacher was old Miss MacKillop. She was one nast wee woman. Two sisters at NKS were bothe Miss Mackie, one taught PE and the other taught Geograpy. As for Miss Bertha Gunn, I have always felt a bit guilty about what she did. She was so nervous and I think us kids drove her mad.
Wonder what it was about French teachers? I had one, for little or no provocation, other that the fact I was poor at French, and said something he took offence at and actually swung a full fisted punch at my head. Fortunately my father had been an amature boxer in the wilds of Guvin and I easily dodged his blow and sent him sprawling without even touching him. St. Anthony's boys club boxing had great advantages when growing up around dysfunctional French teachers.
