I would like to choose the name Emma Monalisa for our Victorian day!

It is interesting to know abut Victorians but it is terrifying also to know that they were strict to the children.

Good name. This was Ilse's last year. Please do not be terrified Sessy! We do the whole day in role as Victorians, but remember it is just drama. The teachers will be stern rather than horrible! Victorian teachers would not have been running around yelling and using the cane every 5 minutes. They didn't need to because the children were so will drilled!

sorry wrong name. I changed it to:

Princess Laura H. Mearle

I am going to be a girl from a rich and famous family

Good name. A princess? Wow. Am I going to have to treat you like royalty Lina?

p.s. A princess would not be going to school with all the rascals you will be with on Wednesday. They would be taught in the palace by a governess. Maybe you are the daughter of a prince and his lady servant, and you are being brought up as a normal girl.

my name's Jennifer Harvey
And do the girls all tie up our hair??

Great name! YES Sarina, hair certainly needs to be tied back. You must use string or a ribbon. And no jewellery either!

Dear Mr.Ben, it's so nice to hear that we are well behaved in class and you don't need to go around with canes that often.
