1. The thing I dislike most about Captain HardCastle is that he doesn’t listen to the students and he doesn’t believe them.
2.Prep was the time where the school sat down for an hour and did work, whilst a master watching.
3.Roald Dahl spoke to Dobson in prep because he had broken his nib and he needed a new one.
4.A stripe meant that you had done poor work or bad behavior, this usually meant that you would get sent to the headmaster’s study.
5.In Roald’s situation, I would have told Captain HardCastle that I needed a new nib, if he has spares that is.
