... it’s simply a description of the events of the half term. There’s a long walk, for instance, described over several pages. The sixth form plan a halloween-based staff evening, and there’s a chapter that details all the games and other activities that take place. There’s a half-term break in the Sonnalpe for those girls who can’t go home, including a snowfight and various other entertainment... but nothing dramatic happens. And there’s almost another chapter that tells us, at some length, exactly what happens in some tableaux and other show pieces that are the climax of the half-term.

Naturally the Middles get up to mischief; one of them nearly causes a tragedy in a science lesson… but even that is rather played down, barely mentioned after the lesson concerned, other than that the girl in question takes a while to recover.

At the end of term is the Christmas play.—https://suesbookreviews.blogspot.com/2020/11/exploits-of-chalet-girls-by-elinor-m.html [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Brent-Dyer, Elinor Mary

Author Image

Elinor M. Brent-Dyer was born Gladys Eleanor May Dyer on April 6, 1894 in South Shields, in the northeast of England. She wrote over a hundred books of children’s literature during her life. From lower middle-class roots, she went to a small private school and became a teacher after attending the City of Leeds Training College. As a teacher, she worked at both public and private schools, and even as a governess. She had an interest in the theater, and her first book Gerry Goes to School (the first in her La Rochelle series) was written in 1922 --for the child actress Hazel Bainbridge. About this time, inspired by a vacation to the Austrian Alps, she wrote The School at the Chalet in 1923 (the first in her Chalet School series). Brent-Dyer continued to teach and tried rather unsuccessfully to run her own school from 1938 to 1948. After this, she quit teaching but continued writing until her death on September 20, 1969 in Redhill, Surrey.
