Further to my piece in last week’s edition of The Sweyne Park Times, I can confirm that we have now re-scheduled Year 10 Parents’ Evening to Thursday 10th June. It will take place remotely, via the School Cloud and appointments will be made available nearer the time. Please do keep an eye on your emails for further information.
“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!
