I do hope that you all managed to enjoy the lovely weather last weekend, as well as the increased opportunity to meet up with friends and family outside. Although we are able to enjoy more freedoms, within school it is really important that pupils and students continue to observe all of our COVID-related safety measures. These include maintaining social distancing, keeping to their designated indoor and outdoor zones, wearing face coverings (unless exempt) and ensuring that they continue to use the wipes provided to clean down their desk and other work surfaces on arrival to their classroom. As I am sure you are aware, the next Government review date of their “roadmap” is 17th May, when I know that the wearing of face coverings in classrooms will be considered, along with the possible lifting of other restrictions.
“A hard-hitting return to Garden Heights with the story of Maverick Carter, Starr’s father, set seventeen years before the events of the award-winning The Hate U Give. With his King Lord dad in prison and his mom working two jobs, seventeen-year-old Maverick Carter helps the only way he knows how: slinging drugs.
Life’s not perfect, but he’s got everything under control.
Until he finds out he’s a father… Suddenly it’s not so easy to deal drugs and finish school with a baby dependent on him for everything.
So when he’s offered the chance to go straight, he takes it.
But when King Lord blood runs through your veins, you don’t get to just walk away.”
A powerful voice, this story will have you gripped!
