Miss Seldon's Thanksgiving service and a special publication of memories

Posted on Monday, 20 June 2016 at 13:35 by maggieg

Saturday June 18th saw more than 100 Old Girls gather at St Olave, Hart Street for the London Thanksgiving service for the life of Mary Rose Seldon. Tributes from Christopher Balkwill, a lifelong friend of the Seldon family, and our own Club Chairman Vaninne Parker reminded everyone of what a great privilege it was to know Mary Rose and be taught by her.  

We will publish full transcripts of the tributes here shortly.  Since the service Old Girl Fiona Clark (nee Dziegiel) has sent us an eight page amalgamation of short tributes from Old Girls.  She collected these from the Facebook Group Mary Datchelor Girls School private club site.  Click here to read it all - have your tissues handy....
