63. Gillian Hall (LGB 1949)

Posted By Alumni Office, jeudi, 6 novembre 2014

Gillian Hall(Gillian Hume)

1. How long did you spend at Ecolint?
One year: 1948-49.

2. How did you come to attend Ecolint in the first place?
We learned about it from family friends whose children had been at Ecolint before the war.

3. Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and how?
Mme Maurette, M Imhof, Mlle Travaletti, and Mme Wend (who fined us if we spoke English in her classes!).

4. What was your favourite spot on campus and why?
I was a boarder at LGB, so we gathered in the courtyard by the main buildings.

5. What was your favourite place in the wider region, and why?
I can't really remember!

6. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
I became a primary school teacher, married, had children, and became a lay Magistrate. I have lived in Southeast London for over 50 years.

7. What should be Ecolint's top priority as it approaches its 100th anniversary?
Not to get any larger - you lose the sense of community that was so important in the early years.

8.  What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to today's Ecolint  students?
Make the best use of your time at the school - and learn to speak at least one other language! Communication with people from around the world is even more important than ever.

9. What has been the biggest impact of your Ecolint education on your life?
Although I had only one year at Ecolint, it made a great impression on  me, even after all these years. I grew up and learned to look after myself and not to rely on others. I was there when the school celebrated its 25th anniversary and still remember it.
