Exactly! Though they can't stop us plotting... :twisted:

Enough to cause mayhem! It was little dangerous moving between morning lessons - you never knew which alcove or parked car was concealing a waiting snowballer, and pitched battles seemed to erupt in every five minute gap between lessons. You can tell how deprived of 'real' snow we've been here (over...

Hi again, I'm trying to work out which of your questions have not already been answered above... The whole uniform, other than shoes, is provided, though girls often prefer to bring their own tights rather than wear the grey socks provided. You end up needing to provide games kit - they almost certa...

Congratulations on your acceptance Gemma! I wouldn't worry too much about 'being the new girl': you will be coming as a 'new dep', and probably will on odd occasions be referred to as such throughout your time at CH, but that doesn't mean that you won't settle and be accepted quickly - you won't be ...

Well, regarding the Pupils side of it... I think one main reason is that relatively few pupils know of or use the forum, and thus aren't aware of opportunities available. The paradox, as ever, is that in it's present form, the topic is hardly enough to satisfy the requests of entire yeargroups... I ...

Ah, but if you look at the site: Brighton College 3rdXV not so impressive :wink: And it'll only...

I can see this thread has digressed elsewhere, but i felt i just had to answer dtbs... sorry to interrupt the reminiscing! But Mark, I ask, were you actually there ? Yes! I do admit a 'slight' bias though, singing with Grecians East (and listening to our plentiful applause :wink:) However, as a memb...

Well said! :D

But the more commonly used rhyming word is 'beast', with an even more positive meaning!

I think davebythesea is hardly showing neutrality - spreading vicious western propaganda would be better :lol:

Remember, GrE is the musical house :P Erm - what do you mean by that? My informant tells me that GrW was better on the Unison song (which they won) and far better on the part song (which they lost due to some confusion in the judge's marks). In short, Gr W won hands down in reality if not in fact. ...

yes, I made that comment elsewhere, and got a reply from Richard Ruck http://www.chforum.info/php/viewtopic.php?t=862 It would that appear this is somewhere in the pipeline!

Well, I was definitely successful in my search! Thanks to Alex S-B, I spent a week in the EIU, a economic forecasting/analyzing company, exactly what I was looking for, and learnt a lot about it. Definitely a successful use of the forum in enabling old Blues to help current Blues! I really feel like...

definitely un-pc, yes, but 'jew' (developed to 'yid', etc), 'gay', and so on are definitely still a part of CH parlence. Interestingly, comments referring to sexuality as a general insult are far more likely to be called out as un-pc, while race-related comments - tongue-in-cheek, but nevertheless v...
