Re: OLD BLUES DAY - 2015.

I suppose it will reduce the pressure on the school - especially for the Grecians who play quite a prominent role. April/June was always a bit exam-heavy. It'll be a bit less nice weather-wise, I expect - and I suspect it will be before the second form have learned how to march properly (speaking as...

Re: Memorable Sermons

I only remember one. Mr Aldridge, the RS teacher decided the best topic for a sermon was the allegorical nature of Star Trek. Surprisingly it went down quite well, not least because his shaggy hair, beard and glasses made it seem perfectly natural for him to be preaching on the subject. My most mem...

Re: Pranks in Chapel

Such positive waves! Beautiful! But so far I am reminded of Crocodile Dundee. You call those pranks... Here is a prank! Three pranks. Sermon Cricket. I'm sure I have mentioned this already on some other thread of this inspiring site, but here goes. I noticed recently that Gordon van Praagh also pla...

Re: Dr Martens 1461

DMs have certainly been the recommended style of shoe all the time my lads have been at CH, and they used to be stocked by Broadbridges in Horsham while they were the official school outfitters. However they're by no means compulsory, and lots of pupils seem to wear different shoes - with DMs now c...

Back

Hello, everyone - just posting to say I'm back. Where have I been? Hmmm, I'm not entirely sure myself. Quite faraway though - even past the lurking stage. But...well, hello again :) Hope everyone is doing well!

Re: Walking the TransPennine Challenge for CR Mirfield

Hope you enjoyed the walk! I have a deep affection for CR, and recently had an open day there. The church - upper church in particular - is gorgeous.

Hi Jason

Unfortunately time and tide have separated us all. Facebook tells me that Camilla and Fiona are both in their last years of university and doing rather well by all accounts, but for the rest, I have no idea I'm afraid...

Re: Does CH Take In a Fixed Quota of Ginger Kids Each Year?

Interesting to get an update from a comparatively recent pupil, Eruresto. So you're saying that gingerness is now considered worthy of remark, but not worthy of mindless violence, incessant name-calling and the flushing of one's head in the toilet? Or do we suppose that ginger squits are currently ...

Re: Does CH Take In a Fixed Quota of Ginger Kids Each Year?

One thing I do remember was "Get back in your biscuit tin, Ginger, Ginger." However this was from the same few people, and by no means the norm (which was more like people warming their hands against my hair.) Turning things on its head, I rewrote a verse of that well-known campfire ditty to tell al...

Re: Can you hear the bells?

Thank you everyone! Leah was due to join me at OBD this year but can't make it, sadly. As for the running commentary, we're not looking at an aisle in the immediate future, but when we get to the stage where things are happening, expect nothing else from me! :wine:

Hello everybody,

I thought I would share the news that this morning I asked my better half to marry me...and she said yes. :D
