Re: Betty Coles

I have taken the liberty of copying your post to a Facebook group page for CH Ladies as there will be many members who will recall Miss Coles (I can't quite bring myself to call her Betty!) and may come up with some more anecdotes for you. I have also asked if the school itself might still hold reco...

Re: Films at CH Horsham

I'm sure I remember watching 'The Nun's Story' in the hall, but we also trekked over the road to the cinema quite often. I remember seeing 'Towering Inferno', 'Jeremiah Johnson', 'Kelly's Heroes' and at least one James Bond film amongst others. I wonder who amongst the staff decided what was suitabl...

Re: "Screw Kick!"

Blimey! I'd forgotten white stripes and diving. Surely the swimming bath was not deep enough for Serious Diving.. I saw Elizabeth Onley again, years later, when I was in the CH Choral Society and we sang the Mozart Requiem at the Angus Ross Concert that year (in Big School, Horsham). They had augme...

Re: "ALL GIRLS TOGETHER"

Not sure about success at running away! It was with a friend from another house-resulted in us being suspended from school and I was only allowed back to take 2 O'level re-sits (friend left the following term, I think) ! By that time I was in the LV1 and just had enough of all those petty rules. Mis...

Re: Hertford Memories - The Book

Likewise, I can remember the surnames of those you started with, except for Debbie? and Kay?[/quote][/quote][/quote] They were Taylor and Larsen respectively. Kay was really bright, excellent at sports and a terrific pianist but she left at the end of the third year. She had a brother at Horsham who...

Re: Hertford Memories - The Book

Of course! As soon as I read the names I instantly remembered their surnames - memory is a very weird thing. Hi fra828 - yes, you were definitely my era as you were my house mother when I arrived in 1971 with Jane, Sarah, Shirley, Kay, Debbie and Helen to join Fliss. I remember you being very kind a...

Re: Hertford Memories - The Book

OK - I have before me the original cast list for 'Arsenic and Old Lace'. Sadly it has faded with passing of time and wasn't that well produced in the first place so I cannot read all of the surnames so you may need to extemporise, but here goes; Abby Brewster - Robin Engelheart Rev Dr Harper - Charl...

Re: Hertford Memories - The Book

I believe I was Dr Einstein to your Jonathan - as far as I can remember we never really learnt the last scenes (or was that just me) and muddled our way through. However I also seem to recall it was quite well received and I certainly enjoyed it! Somewhere I have the original roneo'd sheet with all ...

Re: Margaret Wilson, RIP

Vlaaadivostokkk! I was told off for swearing by Mrs McGregor (8's housemistress fleetingly in the 70's) when practising my Vladivostoks after a geography lesson.

Re: The School Rules

I know there were several pages of them because Miss Morrison made me learn them all as a punishment once (either for singing 'he jumped from 40,000 feet without a parachute' to a well known hymn tune in chapel or for watching 'Top of the Pops' when I should have been doing prep - I can't remember w...

Re: 30 Years On!

If you look on the CH Association website, there is a photo in the gallery showing the attendees, about 9 I think from memory plus Miss Tucker; I could not attend either due to work committments which were set in place long before I saw any information promoting the event. It is a shame but there di...
