To up the confidence of the girls, the nuns decided to hold a Miss Madre Albertina contest within the home.
There were 6 participants
Lilian, Brigida, Judith, Gabriella, Silvanna and Ingrid.
Maria did some folklore dancing and the others, some modern dance.
2 local hairdressers volunteered to come in and do the hair and make-up
Isabella co-ordinated all the dancing – a wonderful volunteer from Denmark
