Hana Fried's typescript story received during Caldecott Association Canterbury Cathedral reunion 2nd Sept. 2007.

This was no ordinary boarding school. Originally it was started as a day nursery catering for working mothers' children. There is quite a history to its gradual growth to today's boarding school which is closely related to its founder, Miss Leila. But I am not going to talk about its history. What I want to talk about are my very first impressions, a little about the school itself and lastly about the children.
