Summer - selections from the School Magazine
Here's a selection of items with a 'Summer' theme from the earliest editions of the School Magazine. I've had to do a little detective work to select some of them - for instance, any mention of 'flies' led me to think an essay or poem might have been written in the Summer.
Click a link below to see each item as a pop-up page (you'll need to disable any pop-up blockers you may be using). Most items are shown as images, so they may take longer to load than usual especially if you are using a dial-up connection. The introductions in italics are of course by me, Roger Pikett.
As with the other seasons in this section, on this page and on the headings to the items, the years in brackets refer to the year of publication of the magazine.    The dates of the events,  where we know them,   are given in the body of each item.
These excerpts appear by kind permission of the present school, which has a claim on the copyright. But the authors - most of whom can't now be contacted - have a claim to copyright too, so if you are one of these and you'd rather not see your work here, please email us. On the other hand, if you're the author and you're happy to see your item here, we'd love to hear from you: perhaps there's some background to the piece you'd care to give us, and we'd love to hear what you've been up to since you wrote or drew the item.
