Re: "Screw Kick!"

I was standing on the boundary of the rounders pitch one day, gossiping with Charlotte Lycett when the rounders ball rolled by our feet from some distance away. Miss Gravett called to us to fling it back and as I was unable to throw anything more than two inches Charlotte picked up the ball and with...

Re: How reading made us modern

Going back to perceptions of the school, apparently the pupils hate going inthe school mini bus bcause of the slogan on the side. I think it says 'Christ's Hospital School-giving education with care' . The pupils widely agree that is makes it sound as is the are 'in care' and the school is pleased t...

Re: Fiona Bruce at CH

The band looked marvellous and there was a very sweet shot of a dear little scatty boy running madly across the avenue. Very endearing.

Re: Tea & coffee

Going back to the tea. I do remember going to the school kitchen for some reason or other and being transfixed by the sight of a Dickensian vision of a huge metal tub of tea being stirred by very alarming woman. She was hypnotically intent on the task of stirring the liquid with a huge wooden paddle...

Re: Tea & coffee

When I was in LVI in 5s we did the decorations. We were were disparate crew and had lost some members at the end of the previous year. There was me and Lynn Ford, Sally Hugesson and Charlotte Lycett.

Re: Privileged to give a special gift

I have 'weak D' blood. I have no idea what this means but every time I have a blood test they recall me and put a question mark next to 'weak D'. Then I say, last time they said I was 'weak D'. Then they tut and confer and ask me to give blood. I trot a long and they they say they can't get any bloo...

Re: Funny things your children have said

Not my own child but sweet all the same. I taught class in a rough school where sometimes the children would be withdrawn for extra help. They went to The Special Needs Department. Paul got up to go and I had forgotten he had to leave and asked hin why he was out of his seat. He said he was going to...

Re: House Singing Competition?

Surely Jo you were there when we had a choice of three set songs and an own choice. The outstandingly appalling ' gra-a -a -a- a- ceful swaying wattle' comes to mind or the equally memorable Armadillo Song from South America which contained the line 'the armadillo , dilloing in his armour'. I defy a...
