Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

Grade 10 dinner

As is traditional in Tasmania, students have a dinner at the end of Grade 10 since Grades 11 and 12 often take place at secondary colleges that are separate from the high schools. It is customary on such occasions for folk to dress up for the occasion, and so, about a month ago, we went in search for a suitable sartorial statement for Josh. Although he managed to broaden out a little in the intervening weeks (to the point where, unfortunately, this may the only wear he gets out of the jacket), he looked quite the part on the night.

He and Imogen hammed it up for the camera in the front yard

and acknowledged Lisa as well, who would have been so proud of Josh (as she was of Imogen last year).

One of Josh’s friends had kindly organised a noisy muscle car to be Josh’s chariot for the occasion, taking him across to the Botanical Gardens for a pre-event gathering with most of his classmates, and then delivering him to the event venue for what was, by Josh’s account, an enjoyable evening.
