Parents we could not trace in order to deliver report cards.
We have not heard of their parents because their admission was secured by their “grandfather”. However, they are not related to each other so we were a little hesitant at the start about how they shared one grandfather, but the Ministry said we must admit them under one parent. So in our school register, we have five students with one parent whose name is listed as “grandfather”!
Needless to say, their real parents have never attended the PT meetings. Neither has their “grandfather”.
Since this “parent” oversees five students, let me elaborate on his background. Contrary to his title of “grandfather” this “parent” is said to be a pompous upstart. His nickname may have arisen from criticism that he: acts too old for his age, is too big for his boots, has risen too fast for his proficiencies and all in all, is a “dud” with a nerd’s face. He’s the little dog who yelps and exults as everyone runs helter skelter, not realizing that they have actually seen a huge wild mastiff behind him in the distance. Oops, have I said too much? The ministry may wish to edit this report.
