Congratulations to Finn Geraghty (Year 7), who submitted his 100-word mini-saga, ‘Granny Has Alzheimer’s’, to the Young Writers’ ‘SOS Hunted’ competition and has received a Certificate of Merit.
Granny Has Alzheimer’s
Granny has Alzheimer’s. She has a dog named Jack that always plays outside. But his life was over. She hunted for Jack, not realising he was never coming back. She was scared stiff for her darling Jack.
The family came. It didn’t feel the same, Granny wasn’t there. They looked everywhere for Jack. They went to the animal shelter and hunted for dogs that looked like Jack, with fur as black as the night sky. They took one home. Everyone was excited. The name should’ve been female, but that didn’t matter. Granny wouldn’t know it wasn’t Jack because Granny has Alzheimer’s.
The first time my daughter and I visited the school she said to me “that is a happy school no question.” The scholastic achievements of the school are evident and an easy measure for a school to demonstrate. What is hard to quantify is the holistic development of a pupil at which, in my experience, Windermere School excels.
Windermere School is such a unique community to be a part of. Not only is it based in a truly beautiful and inspiring national park, but the environment created by staff and students alike makes for an incredibly supportive, proactive, exciting and international place of learning in which everyone can thrive and be the best they can be.
