Title: The Chalet School Does It Again Author: Elinor M Brent-Dyer Publisher: Girls Gone By Publishers Year: 2002 Condition: New
Chalet School staff and girls alike are bemused by one of the oddest new girls the School has ever had. Prunella Davidson is prim and prissy in the extreme, sprinkles her conversation with proverbs and insists on calling her fellow pupils by their full names, which leads to a serious row between her and one ‘Helena’ Maynard. Miss Annersley holds a stand-up class with a general knowledge quiz in which Con Maynard adds to the many legends of the Chalet School. On an expedition to Lake Lucerne one group in the care of Miss O’Ryan nearly meets with tragedy when one of the School’s naughtiest girls falls into the icy lake. Fortunately, rescue comes from a very unexpected source before any lasting harm is done. The annual Sale takes place this term and this time the theme is The Story Of The Willow Pattern. The Sale is followed by a pantomime, also based on the Willow Pattern, and written and performed by the girls at Welsen, the Chalet School's finishing branch.
