THE Phantom slowly, gravely, silently, approached. It was shrouded in a deep black garment, which left nothing of it visible save one outstretched hand.
The Spirit pointed onward with its hand. But as I know your purpose is to do me good, and I am prepared to bear you company, and do it with a thankful heart. Will you not speak to me? The hand was pointed straight before them. The night is precious time to me, I know. Lead on, Spirit! There they were, in the heart of the city; amongst the merchants; who hurried up and down, and chinked the money in their pockets, as Scrooge had seen them often. The Spirit stopped beside one little knot of business men, pointing to them, Scrooge advanced to listen to their talk. Suppose we make up a party and go?
Scrooge knew the men, and looked towards the Spirit for an explanation. Quiet and dark, beside him stood the Phantom, with its outstretched hand. Scrooge fancied that the Unseen Eyes were looking at him keenly. It made him shudder, and feel very cold. They went into an obscure part of the town, where the shops and houses reeked with crime, with filth, and misery. There was a shop where iron, old rags, bottles, bones, and greasy junk, were bought. Scrooge and the Phantom came into this shop, just as two women and a man carried in bundles.
They all three burst into a laugh. The first woman threw her bundle on the floor. But the man produced his plunder first. A pencilcase, sleeve-buttons, and a brooch of no great value, were all. They were examined and appraised by old Joe, who chalked the sums for each, upon the wall, and added them up into a total. Dilber was next. Sheets and towels, two old-fashioned silver teaspoons, a pair of sugartongs, and a few boots.
Her account was stated on the wall in the same manner. Joe dragged out a large and heavy roll of some dark stuff.
He frightened every one away from him when he was alive, to profit us when he was dead! Ha, ha, ha! The case of this unhappy man might be my own. He lay, in the dark empty house, with no one to say that he was kind to me in this or that. Let us go! Very quiet. The noisy little Cratchits were as still as statues in one corner, and sat looking up at Peter, who had a book before him.
The mother. But surely they were very quiet! The mother laid her work upon the table, and put her hand up to her face. But he was very light to carry, and his father loved him so, that it was no trouble: no trouble. And there is your father at the door! His tea was ready for him on the hob.

Theyhad come from various primary schools to participate in a day of activities, all concerned with theunderlying themes of Europe and its importance. On arrival, the pupils were divided into 8 groups, each of which represented a different Europeancountry. A teacher and two sixth form helpers were then assigned to each group.
Aftc:r a talk on Europe in general, all tl1e children began their day's project work. Each group hadthe task ofstudying their country's religion, food and culture. A number of children were thenchosen to srudy a little of the country's language and soon they were sounding very convincing! Towards the end of the day all the pupils began practising for their presentations - which they.
They were all very impressive and after speaking to a number of children, Igot the feeling that they all seemed to have enjoyed themselves! Isabelle Mantella L6F Nearly people were involved.

Cowshill Woodwind , Mr. Wells Brass , Mrs. Bass , Mr. Herbert Classical Guitar , Mr. Payton Clarinet and Saxophone and Mr. Ashworth Piano. Sincere thanks are given to them all, plus the many people from all year groupswho give their free time and loyalty to make sure musical events take place.
Next term it is hoped to increase the m usical opportunities offered by starting electric guitar andpercussion lessons - which will be taken by a sixth former and past student respectively - both ofwhom are excellent musicians. John Wateridgc. CCS Swini Band This year the membership of the Band grew, with some accomplished younger musicians joining in, just as we prepared to say farewell to a number of founder members.
Once again we played at October Fair, in School concerts and assemblies and at some outside functions including a very happy surprise birthday party fo r the father of one of the Band members.
Sadly, just before Christmas, the Rev. Bum had to give up his duties as conductor due to pressure of work in his parish, but Mrs. Clark ably took over until Mr. Payton took up the baton well, he waves his hands about, actually in the spring. We shall miss the Upper Sixth musicians who have now left school, but still have a strong membership with some promising young players and arc very pleased to have found another excellent drummer. Many thanks to Mr. Wateridgc, Mrs. Clark and Mr. Payton for all their help. There have been lots of outings to the Church and around the school. On one of our first outings we saw a Gold crest, the smallest bird in Europe.
We have also seen a wren's nest and a song thrush, who has successfully reared four young. Unfortunately, fo r the first time in ten years, there arc no Spoiled Flycatchers nesting on lop of the Church windows. On the Church tower there is a resident group of 20 Jackdaws. At school we have done a House Martin watch. In one nest there is a House Sparrow. Sadly the nun1ber of House Martins is getting less. This may be due to disturbance by the building of the new science block. At bird watching club, not only do we see birds, but animals and plants too.
Growing at the top of the Church wall is some asparagus, which is unusual. If you'd like to join the club, come to N20 on Wednesday lunchtimes. Three Counties ShowThe whole of Year 9 loadcd on to two buses. Everyone was very excited. We were given about 3 hours to walk round the whole of the show. There were a lot of veryinteresting stands from various companies, which gave us free badges, pencils and hats etc. We also enjoyed a cup of refreshing real lemonade and plenty of food samples. As well as thesethings, there were also things like a fashion show, a dog show, bungee Jumping and a radiobroadcast that was going out on air.
We met a celebrity but this one had four legs, a tail and a verylarge trophy, for this celebrity was none other than Aldaniti, winner of the Grand National wlien hewas ridden by Bob Champion. He was also making an appearance that day. It was very hot and after all that walking we were very tired when we got back on the buses anddrove back to school. A very enjoyable and educational day was had by all. We all split up into groups of mixed sexes of about I0 to do allthe different activities.
This included archery, wind-surfing, canoeing, raft building, climbing,abseiling, commando course, assault course and Llain challenge. On 2 different nights we went outand had a bivi that includes building a shelter made from wood and sleeping in it all night. Some ofus didn't actually get to sleep in the shelter, we died of coldness. There were about I 0 instructors all being great sports towards us, especially the male instructors. Jay God , Blossom and Steve, all the girls can vouch for this. We had a great time of adventures, even the teachers getting stuck in the wooden tunnel on theassault course and Miss Stainer being watered down by all us lot.
On the last night we had a disco and Miss Stainer and Mrs. Lambert joined in making a foot ofthemselves. On a Sunday morning at 9. We kept each other going by singing songs at the top of ourvoices;ABBA songs supplied by courtesy of. Hise Dutton. All other songs supplied by Mr Binley 7FllAt 5pm we sprinted we did honestly!

We were impressed by the huge tunnel boring machine which was for sale, but decided it was fartoo large to go in the minibus! After watching a video on the use and importance of the tunnel, wesaw on T. There was a superb model train lay-out showing the two tenninals and the different kinds of train, but we don't believe that the Channelis inhabited by tropical freshwater fish! Finally, we climbed the observation tower for a view of theloading ramps and bays, and a glimpse of the tunnel entrance.
Of course, nothing was moving! Before commencing our journey home we shot into Folkestone itself. The teachers went for a strollto enable Mr. Hemingway to make his annual purchase of a crab for tea, whilst the students made abee-line for the amusement-park. The journey home was along the same route as before, through very heavy traffic. It was totallyuneventful except for a slight fuel problem- we ran out of petrol between Chipping Norton andMoreton. In all, it was quite an experience, educational and. We are also very grateful toMrs.
It looked like a typical country scene, cows in a field, most of the cows were sitting but two werestanding as if grazing, but they weren't, they were perfectly still. Mike walked over and touchedone, like the old woman it was nothing but an empty shell. You're dead Mummy!
She had been playing it all morning and hewas getting very tired of it. He was also getting very hungry. He pulled on her skirt, but she ignored him. Sulkily he reached up and yanked her cardigan. He got a fright when she fell over and made a cracking sound as she hit the floor and her headshattered. He ran across the small field that separatedtheir house from the Carters. He saw Mrs.
Carter in the garden hanging out washing. He shouted toher, but she didn't tum round, she was standing very still like his mother. He hoped she wasn'tplaying a funny game too.

Skeathand Mrs. For the fotrowing four days we studied and explored various parts of the surrounding countrysideand seashore.
Sunday was spent on the beach - studying various types of limpets, whelks and seaweeds. Theweather was fantastic - almost Loo hot for working! During the weekend a number of pupils chose rather stupidly, we feel! Five hours later a group of red-faced, exfuusted students arrived back at the hostel- but each was rightly proud of their effort! On the last day, we spent time in various woodlands studying the decay and pH of the surroundingsoil. Although it was very fascinating we were all rather pleased when home time came an hourearly! Nevertheless, we thoroughly recorrunend this fieldtrip to next year's Lower Sixth and wewould like to thank Mr.

Schools Athletic Association in the SeniorBoys Shot-Putt, having reached the qualifying standard of 13 metres with a putt of These Championships are said to be the closest thing to the Olympic Games in terms of atmosphereand organisation that most of the athletes present.

The girls, now more familiar with the track, gave some outstanding performances again!
The following Friday we took a Year 9 team to the Year 9 Championships. This is a far more. Last year we arranged 3 triangular athlc::tics matches which were rained off. This year we enjoytd asurmy evening at the beginning of July with an athletics match v Shipston. The girls, now seasonedcompetitors, came out convincing victors.

Floorball International Tournament Oyer I8's. Due to Scotland not being able to field a full women's squad, the England women's squad played theboys who were too young and England's reserves. There were four reserves for the England squadin the team, and therefore the game was harder ilian we had expected. The game was very fast andwe all eventually pulled together in our teams.
The final score was to the boys, but the girlswere good sports and took it really well; even if there was some jealousy and a bit of hatred! Botli teams played well and congratulated everyone else on an excellent game. The gan1e turned out tobe very tough with a lot of the boys being senl off like yo-yos.
Even the Refs. They began to fight bnck during the second periodwith t11e score ending , and in the final period they worked even harder and the score ended as Even though the final score ended as to the Scottish team, which seems a big gap, theboys worked very hard and deserve congratulations for getting into the England Men's team in thefirst place. The Scottish team, taken from Chapel Youth Club, Kirkcaldy in Fife, were last year'schampions ofUnihoc and most of them are now too old to compete in Unihoc championships.
Inprevious years, tlle Scots' opponents have sometimes been trampled on and their matches haveended in tears witll scores such as or to Chapel Youth Club, so the lads did really well!!!

It was an enjoyable day. England y Scotland - Unihoc l 8th June The squad of twenty to face Scotland for this match had been chosen during two practices inSwindon several weeks beforehand, and of that squad no less than nine players had had or still haveconnections at CCS. Further still, several girls from school were included in the Ladies Squadalthough their match was cancelled as Scotland had difficulty forming a team. Then came the main match at 5. Sixty minutes divided into three periods of fast and freneticplay, although just as important was the efficient execution of the continuous substitution system.
This was something, however, that in the first period we got dreadfully wrongand we paid for it with Scotland up after twenty minutes. From then on things improved and thetwo teams were much more evenly matched for the rest of the game with Scotland keeping theirlead to win After a short award ceremony led by Mr. Clough referee and other officials and a team photo, itwas upstairs to the bar for the buffet which was certainly needed by most. The Scots, however,were to be found glued to the TV watching the footba ll, Ireland v Italy, and consequentlyinternational contact between the teams was somewhat limited.
Despite the fact that we lost, it wasa very friendly and memorable occasion and one that will not be forgotten in a hurry. Adam Chatfield.
