St Trinians for AJJ


I have altered one of my scrapbook pages  from the 1990's  to share with you today.
The school I worked in  always encouraged the children to raise funds for good causes.
These are some of  photos that  were taken on  one such day, 
 raising money on    ''Comic Relief's-- Red Nose Day''.
I cannot show you any photos  with the children who wore fancy dress,
 as it was and is against
 the school's guidelines.

So the staff wore school uniform and at lunch time had lots of fun with the children.
Showing them some of the games  we played,  when we had been in school.

I have altered the photos and given the girls some new eyes,[I'm in there as well wearing my glasses.] perhaps they don't want to be reminded of the football match that ended with many exhausted,
skipping and getting tangles in the ropes,
or like me being stood in the corner of the dining hall
for being disruptive at the table.
 All because I took a jam jar of  pond creepy crawlies into lunch.
My argument was that it did have a lid and they couldn't escape
Moral of story never argue with your teachers they are always right.
 My own escapade will give you some idea of the minor incidents we set up for the children to enjoy .

Good fun was had by all and I am happy to say the children settled back  in class after lunch as if it was just any day of the week.
Another school memory from me for 
Art Journal Journey
 and Elizabeths'  theme of Back to School

Thank you for stopping by, your visit and comments are always appreciated.

  2. Love your page, what fun you must have had that day! I used to love the St Trinian's films, they were always a great laugh. Thanks for another great contribution to AJJ and for your continued support. Hugs, Valerie

  3. This is a wonderful memory and I love how you have included a couple of really great math problems with it. Since I really knew practically nothing about St. Trinian's before your AJJ entry, I had to laugh at your really inspired and irreverent take on the "school."

    One thing that got me was up until two years ago, I had never heard of Red Nose Day, but it seems you have depicted it being around longer than that. I really enjoyed this great entry for AJJ, because St. Trinian's probably never made it to this side of the pond.

  13. Sounds great fun and I'm sure the children loved it.
    Are children made to stand in the corner now? Would they even do it?
    I don't see anything wrong with taking a jam jar of creepy crawlies into lunch, gosh teachers were unreasonable in our day, haha!
