Body Experience

By Ghufran Hashim and Andrea Reynante (12-E)

“In the end, what makes a book valuable is not the paper it’s printed on, but the thousands of hours of work by dozens of people who are dedicated to creating the best possible reading experience for you.” — John Green

Yes, being a part of the student editorial body may seem like a handful; however, it is more than something you just sign up for and toss aside later on.

We started this newsletter because we want to have a platform where students can utilize their writing skills to have their message heard. We want students to express their creativity and have a place to showcase their crafts. We want students to be up-to-date with news and to be aware of what is going on within the school. We want students to contribute in whatever way they feel most comfortable in, because this newsletter is for the students.

Matilda

By: Hala Al Sulaiman (6-I)

Matilda Wormwood is a young girl who is extraordinarily brilliant. At a young age, she started solving complex math problems mentally and read books meant for adults. Unfortunately though, Matilda grew up with parents who did not give her the attention and love she deserves. Mr. and Mrs. Wormwood and their son, Michael, are quite different from Matilda - preferring to watch television rather than read books. They do not understand her and so often treat her badly.

Rather than feel hopeless, Matilda plays tricks on her family to get back at them for the way they treat her: replacing her father’s hair tonic with platinum hair dye and using a parrot to convince them that their house is haunted. These tricks give Matilda some relief and distract her parents from mistreating her.
