From 'The New Chalet School':
"Meanwhile, the prefects to be on duty in St Clare’s after Lights Out were clustered together in Miss Wilson’s study, that lady having shown herself unexpectedly accommodating, suggesting to Miss Annersley that she should have a camp bed in Miss Stewart’s room, and another should be put down in hers, so that Ida and Gillian need not go back to Ste Thérèse’s at all that night.
'Better not risk waking the others,' she said.
'Or couldn’t the camp beds come into Paula’s room and mine, Miss Wilson?' proposed Louise. 'It seems really mean to have to turn you out.'
Miss Wilson shook her head. 'My room and Miss Stewart’s are much larger than yours, Louise. No, we’ll stick to my plan.'
So it was arranged; and when ten o’clock came, Gillian and Ida slipped along the connecting passage, carrying what they needed for the night, to find that Bill had provided hot chocolate and buns in her pretty study, while she herself was just off to bed, being tired after a strenuous day. 'Don’t be too late,' she said, 'and don’t forget to switch of the lights. Gute Nacht!' And she ran off laughing."
