HW, ML and I sat on the grass opposite reception. We were singing 'gilygilyosenpepercasanelaburgen-by-the-sea'. After English we played frisby on the playground by Sister Teresa’s room; then played it on the field. It was about then that ML broke her tooth. On the bus going home DA and DE got out this fishing rod and started poking people with it.

Wed 30 Jun

Went on the Norfolk Show trip. Brilliant sunshine.

Fri 2 Jul

Sports Day. Walpole won and I came 3rd in the 400m Junior Girls.

Tues 6 Jul

End of written exams.

Thurs 8 Jul

Mr Daniels showed a ‘film’ in the hall before General Studies.

Drama exam which HW won with her version of ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’. Differences of opinion on Mr May’s marking resulted in 'The Liturgy of the Helen Wright' being written whilst I darted from one ‘camp’ to the other. I believe there was a cut off time when all plays had to be finished by. The ‘Richies’ won as the ‘Wrighties’ wasn’t finished by the cut off time. However the ‘Wrighties’ was finished and performed after the cut off time and Mr May changed his mind. The theme to ‘Fame’ is no 4 in the UK charts, a new entry.

HW and PR are dead scared. I’m not, not even of MF; but then I have nothing to do with it other than being a ‘Monkee’. HT wants me to be her friend again.
