Editorial - Buzz Bashing

With the Summer Holidays comes the end of year Hampstead Buzz, and despite being subtitled 'Highlights and Achievements', it doesn't really highlight many. Even though the Head says in his opening remarks "In this edition of BUZZ, you can get a flavour of all the wonderful and exciting things that make Hampstead School", they forgot to mention the Year 13 leavers' ceremony, the Jazz Evening or the school production, Guys and Dolls, that ran for three days. They did, however, make room for a report on how the new Year 10's were, shock horror, learning, and getting on with their education, an advert for the Hampstead School Rights Respecting Calendar (Perhaps the only thing in Hampstead that adheres to the Rights of a Child. At least now the school's management can be reminded daily of the rights they are contravening.) and a reminder that Hampstead has a uniform policy.

Also included was an article that asked the question 'What did the Fireplace see?', to which the answer is 'Nothing. It's a Fireplace. It doesn't have eyes', and an article that highlighted that top students had been taken out of lessons to teach Primary School Children. What was that old motto that the Head used to scream through a megaphone at the end of every break and lunch? "Every minute is a learning minute"?

DISCLAIMER: This Hampstead Trash article has been written to critique the actions of the governing bodies of the school. This is so student readers can hear both sides of the argument, and formulate their own opinions on matters pertaining to their education.
