    To correct a factual error: Carmen (Peterkin) Jarvis was not the first woman to teach at QC. That honour goes to the late Lynette Dolphin. However whilst Lynette initially taught just the Prep Form, Carmen taught older pupils – including myself. As pubescent boys, we did not make life easy for a young, attractive female teacher. But she was not fazed.

    Although I attended Saints, my brothers attended Queens and were taught by this remarkable Lady teacher. She should always be remembered for giving the foundation of life to her students.
