Cowart's Common Room
When is a House not a House?

..................when its in a school!!!!!

Having seen Frances's reply to this weeks Homework it occurred to me that unless you are British, you might not have any idea what we were trying to select from this strange and random list and what we are intending for it once we have.

I started to write Frances a reply and do you know its even more difficult than trying to explain the rules of cricket to someone who does not play.

Perhaps next weeks homework should be the best explanation of the
British Public School System. Serious or Amusing

I am married to an ex Public School boy compounded by his Army upbringing as wellShockedShockedShockedShocked Sometimes I have no idea what he is talking about or where he is coming from and that has nothing to do with being a MAN!

I think we could have some very amusing replies.

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Tremendous idea for a homework. St Trinian's meets America. (Was there ever a St Trinian? Or did he (she?) derive from St Susannah?)Very Happy

Re:
Westerwitch's Avatar We could certainly do that if Faith is in agreement and also decide what we want to do with our houses . . . Or that could even be two home works - one next week and one the following week.

Re:
Patsy's Avatar Yes yes Fennie, it did exist as my old boss's wife, the redoubtable Mrs Mac went there in the 1920s or 30s. It was a girls school in Edinburgh called St Trinneans but the author of the St Trinians stories apparently adapted the name.
Dear old Mrs Mac rather enjoyed the rather risqué reputation of being an St Trinians Old Girl Laughing
