In September of 1929, it was time to go to Repton. When they got there he tried on the clothes, and they were ridiculous! It had a stiff collar with wings. When his sisters saw him they started to laugh so his mom told him no one else was looking.
Boazers were teachers who were aloud to beat the children. Williamson's beatings were different because he didn't stop and he slapped back and forth. After a beating they went to have a ritual in the dormitory.
Games and Photography
Roald's headmaster was promoted to a famous position which Roald didn't understand because his headmaster beat kids severely. Even today it makes his heart beat that his headmaster was wounding boys but was still promoted to such an important position.
The boys all disliked Carleton because the boys would clean his room and if he found any dust he would beat them bad! Roald thought another Boazer Wilberforce looked like a giant athlete. If anyone was last in line they had to warm up Boazer Wilberforces bog. While warming up the chair he had to read the entire works of Dickends.
Roald liked to play a game named "Fives", it is played with 4 people, 2 people on each side. The game consists of hitting a small, hard, white leather covered ball. Roald also was captain of squash-raquets and played football. Roald also liked photography and even made himself a room for photography in the corner of the music room.
After Roald graduated Repton he worked in a shell company and there were 107 boys waiting to be interviewed. In 1936 Roald was now going to East Africa and learned many things. In 1939 he crashed his plane and spent 6 months in the hospital.
