Mr Otterway

Mr. Otterway was a chemistry teacher at the Western Road School, in the 1930s.

Arthur, pupil in the school from 1933 to 1936, said:

Mr Otterway taught chemistry, and to punish unruly boys in his class, he would hit them around the face and neck with some rubber tubing from a bunsen burner.

One day he hit my cousin George, who had a carbuncle on his neck which burst as a result. Mr Otterway stopped using that form of punishment after that.
