Garden party beckons

In June I'll be returning to the school I taught at through much of the 1990s for the annual Garden Party, where prizes are awarded to the top students of the year and the kids perform skits and songs to hopefully impress their parents. This photo, of the senior girls and my old mate Roger (what is he doing there?), was taken about 1995. They've all grown up, got jobs and had kids, but the school still looks pretty much the same. Called Česko-anglické gymnasium (Anglo-Czech High School), it was one of the first private schools set up in the Czech city of České Budějovice* after the Velvet Revolution of 1989. 

* In case you were wondering, České Budějovice is pronounced CHESS-keh BOOD-yay-o-vits-eh. Something like that anyway. It's about three hours south of Prague by train.
