The definition of playing truant is to stay away from School without leave or explanation.
This is something two seniors Bennett (David Swanson) and Robertson (new StingLad Eric Kowalski) are highly guilty off. Now they do have some explaining to do and to their Housemaster which may prove difficult..
He of course is not amused by their irresponsible behaviour. As far as he is concerned enough is enough and now they will have to face the consequences. If they are absent together they can be punished together and a whacking with the gym slipper is a very good place to start!
