He speaks about the changes in teaching practices over the years and the growth of the school from being a two-teacher school to having a staff of 23 teachers on his retirement as Principal. He also gives a brief account of the history of the place, the sporting activities and the pastimes, and describes Templeogue Village itself as it was when he arrived there over half a century ago.
