From my memory, (as a pupil at st James boys school from ?75 onwards), homosexuality was not directly mentioned much.

inquiry

No, I think there are plenty of ways to take it further. However they would all have a much more damaging effect on the Schools, and therefore the current pupils.

Claras post
