Summer Term at the Chalet School and what a summer it proved to be!|
This is the first term at the Chalet School for Erica Standish - home from Kashmir - and there is one happening after another. Beginning with a railway accident on the way from Paris to Berne, she goes from one adventure to another, winding up with a landslide, a tumble into the resultant crevasse, and a narrow escape from being buried alive by a further landslide!
In between times, she finds friends, helps with ideas for the celebration of the school's Silver Jubilee, and adopts as a baby sister little Marie-Claire, left orphaned by the railway accident.
A full term, indeed. But we leave Erica very happy at the school and prepared to do her best to become just what is asked of a true Chalet School girl. - 1965 Chambers & 2004 Girls Gone By Publishers
It is summer in Switzerland and the Chalet School is celebrating its
Silver Jubilee, but the ensuing celebrations form only a part of Erica's
exciting first term. Right from the start, she seems to attract danger
and adventure like a magnet... - 1992 Armada|
