News of Old Fidelians
8th March 2012
Thank you for your message. I have had a look at the web site. It is good to see the school doing so well. I am still living in Berkshire not far from the Thames. I gave up work about 10 years ago. I have two grandchildren aged 4 and 6 and one step grand daughter who will soon be 1 year old. We see them all every week and babysit from time to time. We enjoy gardening and going on holiday. Holidays are great for seeing long lost relatives. I am in touch with some Old Fidelians. Janet Aufenast (Kerry) has moved from south of the river to Hampshire. We had a very pleasant lunch with her and her husband. I have exchanged some emails with Jane Brickett (Morris) who now lives in Suffolk. In recent years I have organised a lunches in London to meet with Janet, Gill Cripps (Marcantonio) and Gay Boyle (Power).
My sister Anna still lives in Switzerland. She is a widow and a grandmother.
I hope your Old Fidelians section of the web site is a success. In the old days I used to look forward to the printed magazine.
Best wishes and good health to you all.

How I have missed you all these years!
Began in kindergarten in 1961 .... dear sister Dorothea ..... she was wonderful!
And was in Senior school until 1971, when my mother remarried and we moved to Norway. Sister Mark was headmistress then and taught us Latin!
Sister Bernadette had just become a nun when I was in my 3rd year, and I was a boarder for a short period before coming to Norway. She was in charge of the biology lab, and I was looking after the toad ( catching flies and worms for his dinner!) Also in charge of the desert locusts, and managed to set loose thousands of babies in the lab Sister Bernadette was not amused!
My music teacher, Jennifer Chown/Grant in Junior school - I still have contact with her today. She even took a cruise to Norway this June Smiling face with open mouth and smiling eyes and I met her again for the first time in over 40 years! Imagine that!
