Working Together to Change the Rule Once And For all. Wilmslow High School students have been feeling discrimated against, by some of our local community because of the behaviour of a very small number of pupils in a local supermarket. These actions can have a damaging impact on the rest of us who always behave properly. Mr Gibbs, Director of Student Services, stated that, “we as a school try hard to foster a good relationship with the local business community.” Many of us do try to act appropriately, the school could be doing 99 good things, but one person does one wrong thing, and it affects us all. Is it fair to punish the whole school based on the conduct of just a few? With school Head Teacher, Mrs Bremner stating that “I wasn’t actually aware that the ban still existrf; it was only there for a very short period 4 or 5 years ago.” Mrs Bremner has already arranged to speak to the local store manager about changing it once and for all. We went ourselves and spoke to Steve Morris local store manager from Sainsbury’s, who’s very keen on changing the rule of no Wilmslow High students in the store, unless accompanied by an adult. Mr Morris told us “I wasn’t here at the time of the event, so just kept the same rule as the previous manager. There are at least 134 colleagues in the store, and it is obvious that they can’t keep up with 2000 school student’s actions.” Being the manager, he was fairly worried about the shrink in the store. Shrink in stores is like theft, usually the shipping comes in and the store pays for it, the customers then buy it; which returns the money the store has given for the product. “I would know if there was shrink, as there would be a loss of money.” This is the main reasons for the rule against us. “So far we at Sainsbury’s see your school as high achieving and very active.” This is what he thinks of us as a school. So it’s obvious, the main issue is just the loss of money in his store. Our story has been successful in achieving the chance to change the discrimination we have been feeling and the rules against us at Wilmslow High School, as we are “a slice of society” as spoken by Mrs Bremner, we are focusing on working together as a whole community to achieve peace within Cheshire.
