|THE VERY BAD GIRL|
|BELINDA'S MATRIC DANCE DRESS WHICH SHE DESIGNED HERSELF|
|The dress Belinda designed for the Matric Dance in her second last year|
of school. She attended this as she headed the team that did the decor for
that year's dance
Can you imagine how devastated she must have felt? And this was compounded at the actual prizing giving that followed shortly afterwards when she was not given the Art Cup.
I’m all for discipline at schools but not when it has this kind of outcome, made worse by the fact that yours is a Christian establishment where Belinda should not have ended her school years by being so unjustly crucified.
Fortunately this crushing experience did not hold her back. If anything it might have spurred her fashion designing career on to the heights it has now reached in
*Note: I sent a draft of this to Sister Barbara before I post it and invited her to comment if she wished but I got no response from her.
