Royal School, Portora Walter G W Pontet - a Memory of Portora.

Walter George PONTET (born 1867 Dublin, eldest son of my composer great-grandfather Henry Pontet and his wife Elizabeth Eugenie nee FLEURY) was a teacher at the Royal School, Portora, from at least 1901 and still there at the time of the 1911 census. I am aware that, from at least 1914, he had moved to St Columba's College in Rathfarnham, but I am lacking any real information about his time at the Royal School (except as mentioned above). I would greatly appreciate any information someone might have about him.
