George Cheesewright, also known as "Old Cheesy", ran a school from 1950 in a slab-hut with a bark roof at Kingsgrove NSW. Cheesewright was notoriously clumsy and was known for his talent of spilling almost everything. This lead to the local usage 'Don't cheesy everything', when a school child was clumsy.
