Belle is in bed and looking forward to tomorrow when Dad is going to buy her a new posh Private School Uniform. Next Day they go into the posh shop. The service assistant says he's left several sizes of uniform in the fitting salon. Meanwhile, Dad is giving the price list, and is shocked to find he can only afford a pair of posh socks.
Belle comes bouncing out in a large sock and insists Dad can't expect her to turn up at a posh school looking like this. Dad has another look and admits if he sells the Telly he can probably afford a hat. Belle goes back into the fitting salon and chooses the largest hat. She cuts a hole in the top and the sides and it fits right on her.
She turns up at the school wearing this hat, but the other girls think she's insulted them and she's chased out of school. Suddenly, Belle wakes up....it's been a bad dream and she hopes the real thing doesn't go like that!
The Notice outside the school says "Private School for Young Ladies. No Riff Raff or Scruffbags."
