Encouraging links between students and school staff around the globe
The weatherman got it wrong - again! He said it was going to be cool and bright this week but, instead, we got almost a metre of snow. He hadn't warned us that we would end up snowed in at school, unable to get home for three full days. Mind you - he hadn't warned us about a lot of things. Like the creatures beneath the snow. Frozen corpses that had climbed up through the icy cracks in the frozen ground to crawl beneath the white stuff, searching for food. We didn't know anything about them until Mr Green - our head teacher - tried to dig his way through to the school gate. We watched, terrified, from our classroom window as bulging tunnels of snow advanced in his direction. We shouted warnings - of course we did - but he couldn't hear us over the blizzard. Then, once he was surrounded, the hands burst out of the snow and dragged him beneath the surface. We never saw him again. That's how we learned that they hunt in packs. But that attack was at lunchtime. We were soon to learn that the nights were worse. Much worse...
