Yes, the outraged and disbelieving attitude of the staff towards the midnight feast by Joyce Linton and her friends, and the way it almost became CS history seemed very strange to me, even reading it as a young girl.

While I doubt many real life schools took the twinkly eyed 'girls will be girls' attitude of the Malory Towers staff, neither would it have been seen as crime of the century. EBD obviously thought Joyce becoming seriously ill as a result, another girl being also laid up, and the other 'culprits' being reduced to guilt laden tears was appropriate and just.

Midnight feasts, in my experience, were always more enjoyable in anticipation than in reality! Our headmistress disapproved of them even more than EBD, and threatened that anybody caught having one would have to stay on an extra 24 hours after everybody else went home; our housemistress, however, took the opposite view and knew when one was mooted - and made sure we knew she knew. As long as it was the last night of term, and you kept the noise down, she turned a blind eye. All the same, it was never as much fun as you thought it was going to be.
