Surprised and somewhat shocked to see a large number of Year 11 students in assembly this morning with grey hair. Upon asking The Google about this trend, discover that many unheard of ‘celebrities’ have been sporting this somewhat surprising look for a few years. Entirely possible this trend has been also been in place in school for some time and my fashion blindness to blame for it not registering. More likely answer is time taken for style trends to reach our provincial environment. Regardless of answer, feel forced to accept the onslaught of age and increasing loss of connection to mainstream culture. Celebrate this with a glass of sherry and an episode of ‘Brideshead Revisited’.
