Realising that the Hospital would have to come right past their School on her journey to Little France, Primary 4 children from
wrote stories telling us how the School might help out. Here are some
of their ideas. Preston Street School
In the version illustrated above, the Hospital has magically sprouted wings.
“She flew over

The School said, ‘It’s just a couple of miles that way,’ as she pointed left.
So the Hospital took her advice and turned left.”
In another version, PJ Bear has attached 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 seagulls to the hospital, and so the Hospital…
“…flew! Weeeee! They saw everything. They were even on the news on Channel 5. A hospital has been spotted – a flying hospital! They saw a School (
Preston Street) and flew down.

“Whoosh. It (the Hospital) landed next to
‘Hi,’ said the Hospital. ‘I am going to Little France.’
‘Cool, can I come with you?’
‘Sure,’ said the Hospital.

‘Hee, hee, hee,’ it cheered her up and they stayed friends for ever.”
