We always love to hear good news stories from former students, and how alumnae are excelling in their chosen studies and careers since leaving the High School. The past year has proven to be a difficult time for all of us, but one former Northampton High School pupil has made the most of her time in lockdown, and has penned a children’s book to help children understand the current Covid crisis.
Charlie Golding, who now resides in Australia, was inspired to write her book after receiving questions on the global pandemic from her three children over the past year. ‘When the world went inside’ follows the life of Theo, who isn’t happy when he isn’t allowed to enjoy his favourite hobbies such as camping, visiting his Granny and having sleepovers – all due to the pandemic. The book acts as a conversation starter between parents and children to talk about the virus, whilst also offering reassurance that there is an end, and we are on our way to getting there.
A fantastic personal achievement by Charlie, and we are all proud to hear of her success. We hope to welcome Charlie virtually into school in their near future to talk to our younger students about the book and its message; if you would like to find out more about it yourself, please visit www.whentheworldwentinsidebook.com.
