Miss Pickle the story of an Australian boarding-school by Constance Mackness
Speech Day came and went, a day of bustle and excitement. What a crowd there was in the big school hall! Parents and friends filled it to overflowing; they lined the corridor at its far end and crowded the front stairs, and peeped in through the glass doors that were opened wide. To make more room, every minister that appeared was put on the platform with the members of the College Council. As one was escorted up, Lola's heart gave a great jump of joy - her father had come to see her take the dux medal! The winner of the Special Music Prize played, the winner of the Elocution Prize recited, the Doctor read his annual report, somebody made a long speech, the girls stood up in their white frocks and red ribbons and sang.
I wanted to share this with you because the covers are so pretty.
