In terrific heat...

...to Guildford to present prizes at Rydes Hill School to young winners in the Association of Catholic Women's Schools RE Project. The school is absolutely delightful, lots of little girls bright and cheerful in very charming uniform frocks - and boater hats with ribbons! It is all set in a most beautiful old house, with a rocking-horse and old-style Dolls House in the panelled hall as you enter. A statue of Mary at the head of the stairs. A splendid library with beautiful paintings depicting the life of St Joan of Arc, In the hall,each prizewinner came up on to the stage to shake hands and receive her Catechism or Simple Prayer Book or Merit Certificate,. and every child who took part was given a holy picture. An utterly happy afternoon.
