Bullers Wood Pupil Makes Us Proud
It’s always lovely when one of our students is recognised for their positive character traits and their achievements and this time around we’re especially proud of one our Year 10 Girls.
Chloe Stimson isn’t just any old 15 year old –
Chloe’s mum, Claire, 35, is disabled.
Living at home on their own in Mottingham, Chloe has to look after her mum, the flat and herself.
Claire has fibromyalgia, a chronic pain disease which she says “gives me pain from head to toe every day”.
She also has functional neurological disorder, which stops her legs from working properly.
Chloe gets up around 6.15am to get herself ready for school before helping her mum dress, making breakfast, filling up Claire’s Thermos flask with coffee for the day and getting her medication ready.
Then it’s off to school at around 7.15am. She arrives early so she can get some homework done.
After a day’s lessons, the bright year 10 pupil gets home around 4pm.
Once home from school it’s straight to cooking dinner, as well as making sure her mum’s had plenty to drink and taken her medication.
She does the weekly shop and keeps the flat clean and tidy and just in case this wasn’t enough, she even finds time to bake – Mary Berry, watch out!
Safe to say we’re very proud of her here at Bullers Wood and commend her on the fantastic work that she does on top of her schooling.
