May Day Celebration!

May Day, traditionally the day to raise the Maypole and celebrate Spring, has been celebrated by this school since 1902! Interestly, John Langstaff, the creator of The Revels (now in many cities, including our own), was a music teacher for many years at this school. The May festivities also include "Morris Dancing", an ancient form of folk dance from England-here's a link to a group I've seen perform several times Bridgetown Morris Men. There's a women's group also!

Let's all go A-Maying! (Hippie flower garlands anyone?)
