Christopher Columbus – School Report

Christopher Columbus


Name of Pupil: COLUMBUS, Christopher

Age: 15

Dear Mr and Mrs Columbus,

My sincere apologies for the very late arrival home of your son Christopher following our school outing yesterday to the Genoa Country Park.

The cause of our delayed departure was, I am afraid, Christopher himself.

After lunch, all pupils were distributed with maps of the area and then allowed to explore. it took a search party three hours to locate Christopher after he got lost and failed to return at the appointed time.

I think it might be best, Mr and Mrs Columbus, if Christopher does not go on future outings of this type. He is an enthusiastic lad, but has absolutely no sense of direction.

Yours sincerely,

O. Whereami
Head of Geography
