Elinor Brent-Dyer Trivia Questions

1. What is Jack's full name? (Hint: he has a son with this name.)

From Quiz
You Don't Know Jack!

Answer: John Charles Maynard

Charles, the fifth Maynard child and the second boy in the family, is not named after Jack, but was actually given the name Charles because it is Joey's favourite boys' name. Richard is the name of Joey's father and brother (Dick for short), Kevin is one of Madge's twin sons, and 'Green' was jokingly suggested by Jack as a middle name for Stephen, his firstborn son, when Joey accidentally dyed her hands green.

2. Which Chalet School girl is the only one who intends to become a surgeon?

From Quiz Doctors and Nurses of the Chalet School

Answer: Dorothy Brentham

Dorothy first appears as a new junior middle in "The Rivals of the Chalet School", and she is mentioned periodically throughout the rest of the Austrian books. Her final appearance is as a fifth former in "The Chalet School Goes to It" ("The Chalet School at War"). She and her form mates discuss their future careers, and Dorothy says that she intends to become a surgeon, and as she is an only child her doctor father will pay for her training.

3. What was the name of the first Christmas play to be performed at the Chalet School, in 'Jo of the Chalet School'?

From Quiz They're a Pre-Madonna

Answer: The Youngest Shepherd

'The Youngest Shepherd' is the first of many Christmas plays written by Madge. It is performed in English, albeit with multilingual carols, and tells the story of the Nativity. Joey Bettany plays the titular character, Luigia di Ferrara and Wanda von Eschenau are Mary and Joseph, and the Robin - the youngest girl in the school - is a cherub. At the Margaret Roper School, Elinor M Brent-Dyer's short-lived school in real life, the girls performed the play, though it is unknown whether they did the same version as the one in the book. ('The Smallest Angel', incidentally, is a real Christmas play about angels looking for a place for Jesus to be born. I was a narrator in it when we did it at infant school.)

4. In total, how many second-gen girls from the Bettany and Russell families (i.e. Madge and Mollie's daughters) became Head Girl?

From Quiz Dozens of Cousins

Answer: 4

In order, the four Bettany and Russell Head Girls were Peggy Bettany, Bride Bettany, Josette Russell and Maeve Bettany. Peggy and Bride were Head Girls in the St Briavel's years, later moving on to St Mildred's, and Josette and Maeve were Head Girls in the Swiss years. The only other families with sisters becoming Head Girls are the Lucys (Julie and Betsy in the Swiss years) and the Maranis (Gisela, the first Head Girl when the school was established in Tyrol, and Maria during the short period in Guernsey). Joey Bettany and Len Maynard are the only mother-and-daughter pair to be Head Girls. Although Sybil Russell was a prefect, she was never chosen as Head Girl. As for the younger ones, Ailie Russell is in the Fifth Form at the time of 'Prefects of the Chalet School', the final book in the series, while Daphne Bettany is a Junior, and the series ended before either of them could have been promoted (though the idea of mischievous little Ailie being Head Girl is an entertaining one).

5. A is for ARMISHIRE, where the wartime books are set. On which real-life county is Armishire based?

From Quiz A Chalet School A-Z

Answer: Herefordshire

Armishire is located on the Welsh border, hence the many Welsh-speaking characters. The school moves to Plas Howell, a large house belonging to the Howell family, in Armishire in 'The Chalet School Goes to It', and remain there until a problem with the drains forces them to move in 'The Chalet School and the Island'. Gwensi Howell, whose brother owns the house, becomes a pupil at the Chalet School.

6. In 'The Chalet Girls in Camp', who makes Joey a herb omelette?

From Quiz Donuts & Other Foods at the Chalet School

Answer: Simone Lecoutier

Or, to be precise, an 'omelette aux fines herbes', an omelette using a herb mixture, usually parsley, tarragon, chervil and chives. Joey is ill, and Simone makes the omelette to calm Joey down after she and a couple of other girls accidentally fish what they think is a dead body out of a lake. It turns out to be an artist's dummy.

7. Who is the first person identified as the Chalet School's games mistress in the Tirol years?

From Quiz Games & Sports at the Chalet School

Answer: Miss Durrant

As well as games, Miss Marjorie Durrant also teaches country and folk dancing, and gives the girls a session in 'Jo of the Chalet School'. She has played hockey for her county, and coaches the girls with cricket. During the war years, she returns to the school to teach. By then, she is a widow, her husband having died at sea, and has also lost her young daughter in an air raid.

8. In "The School at the Chalet", there were nine pupils on the first day of the School. Four were appointed as prefects, but which one was Head Girl?

From Quiz Leaders of the Chalet School

Answer: Gisela Marani

Gisela was the oldest of the four, at sixteen; Bernhilda was fifteen, and the other two were only fourteen. Madge Bettany, the School's founder and first Head Mistress, would have preferred an English girl but her sister, Joey (aged twelve), was far too young, and Grizel Cochrane was too irresponsible. Gisela served four terms as Head Girl, and set the standard for others to follow. Gisela is Head Girl in both "The School at the Chalet" and "Jo of the Chalet School".

9. In 'The School at the Chalet', one pupil pranked the school by smearing Vaseline on the blackboards. She then ran away from the school and tried to climb a dangerous mountain. Which pupil was this?

From Quiz Bad Girls of the Chalet School

Answer: Grizel Cochrane

Grizel Cochrane was an unhappy pupil when she arrived at the Chalet School. Her mother had died, and her father's new wife treated her badly. As a result, she had problems settling in at the school. When she was punished for her prank, she ran away and decided to climb the Tiernjoch, a local mountain known to be dangerous. Fortunately, Joey figured out where Grizel had gone and went after her, and both were saved.

10. In "The School at the Chalet", Simone ran away. Joey found her hiding in the pine-woods. What reason did Simone give for her disappearance?

From Quiz Missing from the Chalet School

Answer: She had cut off her hair, and was afraid of being laughed at and told off.

Simone was very homesick, and wanted Joey to be her only friend. Joey insisted she would have as many friends as she liked, but didn't mind being pally with Simone. When Joey told everybody about two new girls who would be coming to the Chalet next term from her old home in England, Simone thought Joey would love her more if she had short hair, like Joey's, instead of a long pigtail. Juliet persuaded Grizel, Anita, Sophie and Suzanne to join her one Saturday morning so that Mr. Eades could film them for the movie about "Life in the Austrian Tirol", despite Miss Bettany having forbidden the filming of her pupils. Herr Mensch was taking Joey and Simone out with Bernhilda and Frieda; they saw what was happening, and he interfered and sent Anita, Sophie and Suzanne home, while he took Grizel on with the other girls. There was a severe thunderstorm when everybody was having a picnic on the Mondscheinspitze to celebrate Miss Bettany's birthday. Simone and Amy Stevens were both frightened, but the whole party took shelter in the herdsmen's hut overnight before returning to Briesau the following morning after the storm had died down. Grizel ran away to climb the Tiernjoch near the end of term. She didn't get lost, but did get trapped in the mist which came down. Joey found her, but Grizel was too scared to move because they were on a precipice. They were rescued by Herr Marani and Herr Mensch, but Grizel was ill with bronchitis, and it was feared that Joey might have brain fever. Happily, both girls made a full recovery.

11. The Chalet School had new buildings provided for teaching Domestic Science. Who provided these buildings?

From Quiz A "Chalet School" Cookery Lesson

Answer: Doctor and Mrs Russell

The girls are told in 'The Chalet School and the Lintons' that the new buildings are courtesy of Dr Jem and Madame. The buildings include a kitchen for cookery as well as laundry and general cleaning.

12. What is Dr Jem's real name?

From Quiz The Life and Times of Dr Jem

Answer: James Russell

Dr Jem really is a gem, but his true name is James Russell. He is introduced in the first book of the series, 'The School at the Chalet'.

13. Where did Madge and Joey spend the first week of their holidays during the first summer in the Tirol?

From Quiz Chalet School Summer Holidays

Answer: The Dolomites

Juliet and Grizel had been invited to join the Maranis in Vienna, leaving Madge and Joey free to explore the little towns of Botzen and Meran in the South Tirol for the first week of their holiday. Juliet and Grizel were expected to join them in Paneirimo for the second week.

14. This cover shows a girl with ringlets. She is placing a bundle of clothes into a box. Another girl stands and watches her.

From Quiz Chalet School Dust-Jackets

Answer: Lavender Laughs in the Chalet School

The girl with the clothes is Lavender Leigh - the ringlets are a big clue. She brought too many dresses to school and had to put some of them away. Later she gives some to Lilamani, a poorer girl at the school.

15. At the end of "The Chalet School and Jo", Madge is going to train as a Guider. Where do Jo and the Robin spend the holidays while she's away?

From Quiz Easter at the Chalet School

Answer: At Pretty Maids in the New Forest with Miss Maynard.

Jo and the Robin accompany Madge to England and spend some of the time visiting relations, before Madge goes to her training camp while the girls stay with their Mathematics/Geography mistress in her family home. At this point Dr. Jem is only just starting to have the Sanatorium at the Sonnalpe built. Mademoiselle has gone home to Paris, taking her cousins, Simone and Renee, with her. The Mensch family provided hospitality only a few months previously, at Christmas.

16. Kathie graduated from which university?

From Quiz The New Mistress at the Chalet School

Answer: Oxford

This is mentioned in "New Mistress at the Chalet School", when her aunt asks her if there were any other Chalet girls at Oxford when Kathie was there. (There were two, Mollie Carew and Joan Sandys, but they were both in Second Year when Kathie was a Fresher.)

17. In 'Changes for the Chalet School', the prefects are taken on a tour of a famous chocolate factory. Which factory do they visit?

From Quiz Chalet School Half-Terms

Answer: Bourneville

This trip took place in the English novels. There is a very long description of the workings of the factory. It seems that EBD may have taken students from her own school on a similar tour.

18. Which pupil decided to become an archaeologist?
