Thought of the Week: What Do You Take For Granted?takeforgranted

The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less”.
Joseph B. Wirthlin

Youth is something I never wanna take for granted. I just want to smile and live life”.
Tyler, The Creator

When it comes to life the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude”.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

Lizzie Arnold - Superstar of the Week

Mrs Stephens' Year 9 class have been studying the topic of euthanasia in lessons as part of a 'Non-Fiction Language Skills' unit. Students have researched and examined the cases of Alfie Evans and Charlie Guard; two very sad but poignant controversies that highlighted the difficulties of making an end-of-life decision. Following this, the class participated in a heated debate in which the pupils had to counter arguments about who should make these vital decisions. The writing task set centred around doctors vs judges and who should make the final decision about medical treatment. Lizzie, being unable to argue that it should be the parents or the child in question, went away and wrote a very heartfelt and passionate letter. It is excellent to see a student feel so passionate about a topic and it is also very impressive to see a student willing to spend their own time creating a piece of writing that expresses her emotions in such a vivid yet articulate way.
