The Centenary Summer School was blessed with beautiful weather, a glorious setting and the accustomed host of gifted and inspiring speakers. The Option Groups again formed the focus of our working day and produced lively debate and fun, as well as materials that will be of direct use to practising teachers of Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation, come September and the new academic year. These materials can be found in the "For Teachers" section.

In a week of highlights, everyone will have their own particular favourite: the visit to Fishbourne? the Centenary Dinner and Address by Peter Jones? Roger Davies' rib-tickling drunken recitation in the Entertainment? Eccentric breakfasts? Peter Geall's admirable and triumphant 11th hour substitution for Christopher Biggins (unable, alas, to attend)? The Quiz? The daily trek from Chetwynd to Hall? The mystery that was the Chetwynd door? Alison Henshaw's option group: - Amores 3, attended by greyhound? Cinderella?

Or, most likely it would be Stephen Anderson's talk on our founder, WHD Rouse. Opening with solo "What shall we do with a drunken sailor?" in Greek, Stephen took us on a magical journey through Rouse's life and career and then treated us to a recording of Rouse, in action with a class of boys, learning Latin, using the Direct Method, in 1932. Priceless and soon, we hope, to be available here online.    DS

Respice! Prospice!

The ARLT acknowledges its debt to generations past but looks forward with renewed confidence as its newest members take up the torch and ensure a bright future for the promulgation and learning of Latin
