As soon as the boy made his way through the school gates he was on top of the world because he knew that the holidays were drawing near, unaware of the bad news that was awaiting him. it only came to light when the boy finally got back to the school.
The school teacher appeared on the scene and told the boy that his weekend leave would have to be stopped once he come's back to school after the six week summer holiday is over to begin a new term. This mean's, that by the time the next term start's he will have to spend every weekend at the boarding school until Christmas.
That was a warning from the deputy head.
Clive Peck reacted badly to this, and, with the news of his weekend leave being stopped by the next term, this meant that he wouldn't be able to enjoy his holiday, with that playing on his mind, so he had to own up and apologize to the headmaster. He did and got let off.
