Don't shut school!

MY school, Wisewood, is to close, the council says. But why, I ask and my friends say the same! We like Wisewood and are very happy there! I'm 11 years old and when it closes I will be in my GCSE year.

I want to do well but I feel a lot of my teachers, who I get on with, will leave before then and we will be left with supply teachers. I can’t understand why the council wants to close my school and make me walk a long way to this new school where I would be frightend when it would be dark early on winter mornings or dark when I finish school. I would not be able to go to after-school clubs like I do now.

There is a brand new gym on Wisewood site that we all love. My friends are near where I live and I feel safe! Me and my friends would not feel safe walking past Rivelin woods after things we read in papers and hear on news about kids being attacked. I’m doing really well at Wisewood so please, Sheffield Council or whoever it is, don’t close our school. I think it’s important that we feel safe and happy going to school not frightend and unhappy!
