Re: Chethams

According to former students, Chetham's School of Music- now being rocked by sex abuse scandals- was a place where it was normal for staff and students to be on first name terms.

I'd always thought calling the teacher "Sir" or "Miss" was about affording the teacher status and protection. I now see it protects the pupil too.

Is That You, Tosh?

As I reached he head of the stairs I heard a rabbit thump on the floor of the room where the rabbits used to live. I've heard it before. Ailz says she's heard it many times.
