Education is in vogue

This is the boy's school. In my day, its main claim to fame was having the longest dormitory in the country.

The school mummies are all a twitter looking at the frocks, the dads are just looking at the models and that Rolls Royce...

Yes it was just like this when I was there...including all the lovely, gorgeous mummies. I wish. As teenagers, of course, all the mummies were yummy. But I do remember that when we were in need, the parents of the boy who was driven to school in the Rolls wouldn't help us out by giving me a lift in the morning.

I'm left pondering on whether it is wise of the first ever headmistress of the school to have made two significant decisions since she started a year ago - change the school uniform and allow the photoshoot.....some degree of stereotyping seems to be coming out...



  1. What larks!

    Actually, I look just like that when I go to pick the boys up from preschool.....

  2. At my kids' school, no mummies are that yummy! Pity we don't live in the catchment area...

  3. Not quite like Billy Bunter and the Remove, is it?


There's only one thing worse than being commented on...not commented on
