Collegiate Girls Dress Up for Louisa’s Walk

Two Grade five classes from St Michael’s Collegiate School made a visit to Louisa’ s Walk yesterday.  This is the second time their teacher, Meg Johnson, has brought her current year students to experience our Primary School version of Louisa’s Walk.

We were delighted, on arriving at the bottom car park of the Cascades Gardens, to see the girls already there and looking so wonderful in period costume.  We always invite students to make an effort and dress up a little, it helps everyone to feel part of the play.  These students had gone to enormous effort though and, without exception, they looked wonderful.

Meg, their teacher, told me they had made very simple mob caps by cutting large circles out of calico, punching holes around the edge and then threading ribbon through them, these were surprisingly effective. Take note parents and teachers it’s not hard!  The image shown below is of a slightly more ambitious cap.

The girls were wonderful participants in our drama and we so enjoyed sharing Louisa’s story with them.
