Bailey House -- Eyes Right

Hello everyone.
I am back with some memories from 1991. My school days.
CSI challenge is to journal about school or work. For days I was thinking of some pics of my kids to scrap. ( happens when you are mother of 2). But then saw layout of one of the fellow bloggers , and realised I went school too.So here I am , trying to rewind back to 1991 and journal about my school days.

Pic of my 12 grade , sports day-- year 1991
There are lots to tell about these pics. My most precious years in the school.I studied for 14 years in the same school, starting from kindergarden to 12 grade. Darling of all the teachers, well known to the principal, even the working class ( ayas and chaprasis -- they helped the school in the cleaning and running around with small errands.) It was all soo different , specially from culture here.
So just a little background, the whole school students after 2nd grade , were divided into 4 houses. I was in green house-- the Bailey house. Always actively participating in extracurricular activities, made me kind of popular:) . And in 12 th grade I was selected as Captain of the Bailey House. Very big responsibility. Almost 6 hundred kids under my command. But I had the best team,all my friends were in Green house and the head girl was my friend too. Sooo, we as group rocked. My house reached its highest point , winning all sports and academic competitions. We learned to lead ,to organise , to motivate . we felt like Obama probably. hehehhe.
We worked hard, slogged ourselves, and got our reward. Our house came first overall after 4 yrs.
Now coming to pics and the title.
WE , while march past , had to turn our heads right when passed the guest of honor. I had to give the command, but I had such a bad throat , that my friend deepali gave the command and I just moved my lips. HAHAHHHA.
"BAiley House--- Eyes right" still reverberate in my years when I think of that day.
Soo much fun and hard work, anxiety, high emotional drama when we won, cant forget anything.
The third pic of our house pyramid, dedicated to girl child, as India still struggles to give better life to girls.

Can go on an on. But dont wanna bore you guys more. Thanks for reading me .

Love you all.
