Babington House School Letters to Sally

Shirley Bannister (nee Andrews) (1941-47)

Dear Sally,

I was completely blown away!!  Thank you so much for arranging my tour of Babington House – I can't remember when I've enjoyed myself so much!

First of all, thank you also to Mr.Lello and his most welcoming staff and, of course, the girls, who are such a marvellous advertisement for your/our school!!

I must admit that prior to coming, I told myself that I must realise that a very long time has passed since my days at Babington, and that today's young people are noisier and somewhat less well behaved than they were in my day.   Therefore, starting with the Assembly, I was amazed – it could have been 1940 again!!  I had quite moist eyes!

Every class I visited, I was greeted with such a welcome, both from the girls and also from the staff, who seemed very happy to talk to me about their students and their projects.   Everyone was happy and the atmosphere throughout the school was one of caring.

Of course, when I was at Babington during the war, we had what would now be described as "very limited" space – even though our games field was enormous!  But the caring started there.  It was like another family to the girls, particularly during somewhat uncertain times.   I was very impressed by your school itself and your girls are very fortunate to have so much available to them, in school time and also in free time.

I could go on and on.......but just say, again, thank you all so much.  You, Sally, gave up most of your morning to allow me the privilege of the visit, and you were an excellent guide.    Thank you isn't enough.........how about "grazie"!!

Warmest regards

Shirley
