Then, that evening we had the Leavers' Dance on a party boat on the Thames - a lovely evening, and the girls all looked beautiful dressed formally. We invited the Year 11 boys from St Thomas the Apostle, (who spent as much time as the girls getting ready, I'm sure) and after an hour of looking at each other uncomfortably they got on well. Things don't change; our school discos 30 years ago were just the same!
Tuesday evening was the annual Summer Music Showcase, for girls to show their parents and friends what they have been doing in class and in their individual lessons, and this year it was a chance for those taking their Associated Board exams next week a chance to practise performing their pieces. A very successful evening.
Wednesday first thing we had Mass in the cathedral for the feast of SS Peter and Paul, and Thursday was a normal day inasmuch that most of us didn't go on strike.
Yesterday we had our Leavers' Graduation and Service in the cathedral; with very smartly dressed young ladies! I had crocheted 27 flowers as hair decorations (managed to find in my stash 27 different coloured wools!) for my form as a gift, together with a form photo we took at the beginning of the year.
Good luck 11L - see you in December for Prize Giving!
