Mysterious Brussels sprouts - made from felt, and closely resembling members of staff - today started to appear around school.
Sources close to Mrs Richards indicate that they have seen her beavering away (like the little helpers in The Elves and the Shoemaker story) with great gusto - needles flying like a manic conductor's baton, eyes set in quiet determination, hair covered in little pieces of green felt etc. etc. - in any quiet moment she gets.
Perhaps she knows more than she is letting on?
