If anyone wishes to contribute to this, money can be left at the school office.

I noticed a stunning silver kart named The British Queen. My legs wobbled as we saw two 12 -15 year old boys racing down Cemetery Brew. “Get and ambulance Lily!” She ran to the nearest box and began dialling. Crashing into the bus. It was probably about 5 pm when this happened. Leslie had a cool trolley made of metal but I just had a trolley made of rotten wood. “Stop!” we yelled at the driver. Ladies were crying with sobbing tears. Mark . Scrunching my scarf up. Gazing in the distance. Nothing could stop it. “Too right Lily!” Flora replied. I put it under his head.
