Seven sis­ters grad­u­ate

Aldershot News & Mail - - NEWS -

HOLLY Lodge Pri­mary School has said good­bye to seven girls, seven years af­ter it bade farewell to their broth­ers, who were them­selves all in the same school year.

Last Wed­nes­day marked the ‘end of an era’ for seven sets of par­ents, for whom this year was their 14th mak­ing the daily run to the Ash Vale school.

When Milly Green, now 11, started at the Holly Lodge, in Septem­ber 2007, she fol­lowed in the foot­steps of her older brother, as did her six friends, with whom she grad­u­ated last Wed­nes­day.

Her mother, Caz Green, said: “It was such a co­in­ci­dence all the broth­ers had a sis­ter born who went on to go to the same school in the same school year. All the par­ents knew each other from the school gate be­cause of the boys. Milly was the first born, but then it was just girl af­ter girl af­ter girl.”

Milly is head­ing to Kings In­ter­na­tional Col­lege in Cam­ber­ley, and the other girls are split be­tween Ash Manor School and Wavell School in Farn­bor­ough.

Mrs Green, 47, a part-time spe­cial needs teacher said the broth­ers still keep in touch de­spite head­ing to dif­fer­ent uni­ver­si­ties and jobs.
