July 2nd saw the official celebration of the founding of the school one hundred years ago. It was highly entertaining to see so many staff and girls dressed in costumes of the Edwardian period.
We only had one lesson that morning which some teachers taught in the ‘Edwardian’ fashion! We then processed to Bowdon parish church for a Centenary blessing, with the service led by Reverend Roger Preece. The music was beautiful and the readings reflected girls’ experience of school life through the century.
The afternoon was a delight. Every form had organised an activity or set up a stall with an 'Edwardian' theme (more or less!) e.g. apple-bobbing, pinning the tail on the donkey, sepia photographs, an Edwardian fashion show, shoe shine.
The bunting fluttered, the weather was perfect and the whole day was joyous, a fitting celebration for an important landmark in the history of the school.
On 20 December, school will finish early at 2.00pm. The library will remain open for Homework Club until 3.30pm.
