Character HistoryEdit

Series 2 (1979)Edit

Penny takes over from Ann Wilson on the school council and successfully argues for a combined book and tuck shop, but neither come to pass when the necessary funds are diverted elsewhere. Penny stands up to SAG's intimidatory tactics and gets lost with Susi on the school field trip.

Series 3 (1980)Edit

Penny writes an inflammatory article about Doyle's lack of action on the school council and when she refuses to apologise to him, Penny is banned from writing for the school magazine. Doyle also steals Penny's project, but she has the last laugh when he is sacked from the school council.

Series 5 (1982)Edit

There's one final appearance for Penny as the master of ceremonies at the school revue.
