Waterloo Road: Justin ruins another shirt

justin leo waterloo road(Series 10, ep.17) Family therapy time, and Yaughan, Pooky and the kids were assembled in front of a fairly useless-seeming counsellor, getting more upset by the minute.

He’s now planning to move to Havelock High because of their superior IT teaching and also to get away from being gazed at compassionately by Maggie.  Continue reading
