I would agree, Bonsai, that the School could be a lot clearer about its aims but I don't recognise that it is self-serving. If it was I wouldn't be interested. If it was, there would be no Art in Action. Do not the demonstrators feel looked after in ways they could hardly expect? I was involved in A...

What's the weather like down your way, ET? I'm going to be in Montpellier tomorrow. I agree with Goblinboy - parents should be fully informed of the nature of St James, and its teachings. Who knows? It could attract more than it puts off. A previous post quoted a complimentary account of the schools...

Good reasons, yes, but why not let him do what he wants to do? It may be very important for him. We can't predict what the result of his letter will be.

We are, in many ways, speaking about two different schools here: the early St Vedast and St James and then the later one. Somewhere along the line it was realised that the early schools had been at fault. Maybe it was simply that love was acknowledged. We've heard very little about the cause(s) whic...

I found the men in suits very alarming when I first met the School so it certainly wasn't for that reason. I still don't think it is (at least not for many), having recently found myself in a much younger group. What is noticeable now - which wasn't the case in the 1970s - is how many students come ...

Yes, I still struggle with the disabilities issue but set in a wider context - how is it that some people are born with a silver spoon in their mouths and others are not? Just chance? But we're all so lucky in many ways - we could be living in a police state or in dire poverty.

You would not say this if you had seen what I've seen - a bunch of senior men swabbing the floor on a Saturday.
