Elocution Contest ~ Wild Horses ~ Marsh Visitors


This year, the Elocution Contest was held on July 11th and 13th, when we were entertained by some short scenes. All classes la upwards competed. The Junior section included classes la, 1 and 2a. 2a won with a play called "Dr. Screwbones". Leslie Haigh was the doctor, who had invented a machine which would cure everybody, whatever their disease. We saw it being tried out successfully on many different types of people.

The next section included Standards 2, 3a and 3. Standard 3 won with an amusing play called "On the Lawn". Three children were trying to think of something amusing to play, when some Crusaders marched on. The three children thought they would like to be Crusaders, but when they heard of the dangers, they changed their minds. When the Crusaders left, some Turks arrived, and told their story. The Children then decided they would rather play their own games, and so the play ended.

The senior section was won by Secondary Form 2, who acted extracts from "As you Like It" by William Shakespeare. The scene was set in the Forest of Arden and all the main characters, Rosalind, Celia, Orlando and Adam were seen making their way to the Forest where they met Duke Senior, the banished duke.

Altogether it was a very enjoyable contest.

Carols by Candlelight ~ Under Water Life ~ A Jouney from London to Nairobi

A Journey from London to Nairobi

"All passengers for Coronet Flight 161, please," said an air hostess.

I picked up my camera and comics and walked out to the standing plane. With gathering speed the plane took off, and in a few minutes we were over the Weald. As we crossed the Channel we saw a steamer heading for Dover.

The plane had been over France for half an hour when a jet roared beneath us. I do not know what kind was.

An hour or so after this incident, we crossed the River Rhone, which was glittering in the morning sun.

In a few hours I caught sight of the Alps with Mont Blanc looming in the distance. We flew through a cloud and over a black looking mountain. The Alps faded away as we crossed the little Island of Elba, and Corsica was on the horizon. It was afternoon as we landed at Rome.

While in Rome we saw a turbo-prop, which made a high squealing noise as it took off.

We then flew over the Mediterranean Sea into the evening light. From up above the sunset looked wonderful.

Darkness fell and the lights were at half power for people to sleep. A red glow from the exhaust made but little light in the darkness. I fell into a fitful sleep but was woken at Cairo where we landed at 9.15 local time. The lights of Cairo glittered as we landed. We saw a film about Egypt progressing in the world while we drank our coffee.

After a four hour run, we flew low over the Nile into Khartoum. It was 3.15 a.m. on the airport clock as we entered the caf". We were again served coffee by Sudanese.

We flew on into the dawn and early morning, until Lake Victoria came in sight. We went over Lake Victoria, banked and swooped down to land at Entebbe. After a short wait, we took off on the last lap of our journey, on over Lake Victoria, over islands small and big, over the Rift Valley to Nairobi, where we landed at 2 o'clock local time,
