Ms. Cecilia’s Neighbourhood!

Fred Rogers is an absolute legend of American culture: a kindly avuncular personality who managed to be provide extra-parental love and care through the tubes and black-and-white screens of 1960’s televisions. Cecilia Franken has done the same for a generation of St. Conleth’s Preparatory and Junior School pupils. Her latest Newsletter (click) captures just a flavour of the variety of the activities to be enjoyed in her programmes. And now we have the ‘Home School’ crown to present to the ‘Afterschool’ and Morning Club monarch! Anyone who knows Cecilia, realises that a mere pandemic is no match for her enthusiasm and innovation. To combat the Corona Cabin fever, she has promised to periodically present videos replicating the fun that was had by all at St. Conleth’s, especially before 8:45 and after 2:45. Here is the first batch. Won’t you be her neighbor?
