Thoughtless for the Week

Eagle-eyed students who are the select few who actually bother to look at the pointless rubbish put on the screens around school will have seen that this week's 'Thought for the Week' came in the form of a quote from none other than George Orwell:
"Freedom of the Press, if it means anything at all, means the freedom to criticise and oppose"
Of course, this doesn't apply to us. And, like any good dictator, the Head is above the law, and so above criticism and opposition. After all, how could you 'criticise' and 'oppose' something that can't be wrong?

It always amazes us how hilariously ironic the school can actually be. Perhaps, and here's a thought for the week, the school should heed its own quote and unblock us from the school servers, and make the media accessible to students in school truly free. Then again, it is only a thought, and one that is only worth something 'if it means anything', which at Hampstead it evidently doesn't.
