I graduated in 57 that was the last class housed in the OLD school "convent." Then the nuns were French Dominicans and many of them seemed to be of Canadian extraction. Then "Father" Andrews used to visit the seventh and eight grade classes and mete out punishment on our upturned hands for our weekly misdeeds every Friday afternoon with his oak molding. The rare female got a gentle tap but the boys "me" in particular paid. I think I still hold the record for being kept after school every day for almost two years.
