. Worked hard for my 7 OLs in June- I had taken English language the previous summer. Missed the last 5-8 days of the summer term: Miss Marsden was unhappy with this, it would affect my A.Ls!! .

Went to Venice in the caravan : with parents and Hazel

Would likely have been the first to use the caravan this year

Camped over in the Lido di Jesolo and entered Venice by boat . Saw glass blowing in Venice; bought silk blouses, thick cardigans and bags. And Hazel bought shoes. Ate good icecreams.

Received my O L results in late August: Was pleased- but not surprised! - with them!

. Still attended one french lesson per week when I was in the 6th form, studying Chemistry, Physics and Pure & Applied Maths. And was delighted to get an Alliance Francaise prize - which few, if any, of the French AL candidates received . Enjoyed acting in school plays - whilst in the U IV th form I had acted in the Tempest. .

Having been in the school Guide Company from 1958- 1961, I continued going to camp with them, as Lifesaver and Assistant cook. Drove Miss Moore's Volkswagon Beetle down to the New Forest one year. Also camped at Castle Ashby and near Alton Towers.
