The School Fete By Gerrard Wilson

Each year our school put on a summer fete. It was the event of the year, just before school broke up for the summer holidays, and each and every pupil looked forward to it with great anticipation. As... More > the time of the event grew closer, and the school rooms began to fill up with the many bits and bobs that were donated for the big day, we were barely able to contain our excitement. You see, St Ignatius was a small, old-fashioned primary school, where space was at definite a premium, so Sister Alexis, our headmistress, designated a part of each classroom to store the donated stuff. I call it stuff because that is what it actually was, stuff that people wanted rid of. But to us children, with our imaginations running wild with excitement, it was treasure.< Less

Horrible Horace and the Slug By Gerrard Wilson

One wonderfully damp and drizzly cold morning, a slug called Reilly wandered away from the confines, the safety of his garden. Sliming his way under the garden gate, he pointed his stalked eyes, one... More > in each direction, along the busy street outside, wondering which way to go. “This is indeed a fine place to begin my travels,” he said to himself. “To think I might have spent the rest of my life, all seventy-five weeks of it, in that dull and ever so boring old garden.” Being left-handed, Reilly decided to turn left (yes, slugs can be left-handed, despite their shortage of appendages). Sliming his way happily along the path, he believed the world was his oyster. Soon, gate and garden were far behind him. “I had better be careful,” said the adventurous slug, “I don’t want to end up like uncle Myles. He wandered off across the road, and a camper van ran over him. I must be careful, to avoid such a terrible fate.” A mad, whacky story about the time when Horrible Horace found a big, slimy old slug.< Less

Although the winters were despairingly cold, they did nothing to dent our childhood happiness. We constantly invented new games and activities to keep ourselves warm during the cold days of winter. We played at Haunted Houses, Cowboys and Indians, and we also played Conkers Bonkers. Lastly, and perhaps the most entertaining of all our playful inventions, we played jumping down the stairs…< Less
