The new Lay College was recently built, but it still had no name.

Now honoured Fršulein Landgrebe had decreed that it shall be Sai ThamŽ College.

This was favoured by most prospective scholars. The other strong possibility was Sai Mati College, the College being founded in the Year of Sai Mati, and Sai Mati being the Janya governing the intellectual, communicative, teaching and learning aspect of the College.

However, Sai ThamŽ governs the Golden Order which our community must manifest and the training aspect of the College which will help us to become fuller and more perfect daughters of the Motherland.

The College will be founded in the Year of Sai Mati, but dedicated in the Year of Sai Sushuri which begins on Culverine 1st (March 21st).

Sai Sushuri rules the bonds of love and Amity which are the foundations of our current Family and Community and will be the foundations of the College.

Rather fascinatingly, the College will be named for Sai ThamŽ - the Janya whose year would have come between that of Sai Mati and that of Sai Sushuri if 3327 were not a leap year.

Many decisions have still to be made, but this seems an appropriate point at which to make a summary of the things that have been decided about the College:

1) Honoured Fršulein Landgrebe will be College Mistress. She is Currently Head of the White Rose Family and at this stage it is felt that there is no need for or advantage in having a separate leadership.

2) Honoured Miss Poppy will be Praefecta Morum (Prefect of Morals - a term that embraces order and harmony). While discipline may be administered by any maid in a permanent or temporary position of authority, more serious cases may be referred to the Praefecta Morum. She may also be in charge of certain training programmes.

3) Honoured Miss Elytis will be College Librarian.

4) An introductory course leading to a formal entrance examination will be established at a later date. The current entrance examination will consist of the submission of a piece of work intended to epitomise (an aspect of) one's intended contribution to the College and to Aristasia.

5) Since it is a Lay College, academic requirements will be relatively minimal. Each scholar will present, as a minimum requirement, an annual, or bi-annual piece of work of her own choosing (the subject being approved by the Mistress or any College Mistress or Governess assigned to the scholar). Any other requirements will be at the discretion of the College Authorities.

6) Most courses of study and other more rigorous activity will be regulated by Study Groups and Sororities within the College. This will allow the scholar to select the amount of time and work and training she commits herself to. Membership of such Constituent Bodies will be largely voluntary, though a scholar may be directed to join one by one of her superiors where she feel that this will be beneficial and not unduly disruptive to other commitments she may have.

7) The College Uniform has been formalised, though specific guidelines as to when it must and when it need not be worn have not yet been issued.

I think Honoured Fraulein Landgrebe has made the best and most excellent possible choice in the name Sai ThamŽ College. What is our community without ThamŽ?

maybe Miss Ashin...it's like a cake without topping?
Thank you dear Fršulein Landgrebe, this is the most appropriate name!
