YOUNGSTERS from Grange Primary School are all looking forward to the New Year – and hope they can stick to their resolutions.
We asked children from Year 6 if they had any plans to make a resolution, and whether or not they were confident they would stick to it.
Annalise Curry said: “My dog Tess is dead so I’m going to try and not think about her as much as I know she is in a better place.”
Kieran Newcombe said: “I’m going to go downstairs and help my mam and dad more, because I’m always upstairs playing on my XBox.
“It might be hard though!”
Lewis Young said: “I want to look after my nana more because she’s ill as she had an operation on her neck.
“She lives down the Headland so I’m going to try and do some housework for her and make her some cups of tea.”
Lorna Herbert said: “I want to spend more time with my brothers because they don’t really want to know me anymore as I’m not there for them a lot of the time.
“They should have their older sister in the picture.”
Olivia Rowntree said: “I want to spend more time with my family.
“I’m always asking to go on the computer or on my phone but I need to spend more time with them and to stop arguing with my dad.”
Riley Booth said: “I want to phone my dad more because he is always at work.
“He lives away from Hartlepool on a boat, and I don’t phone him very often so I’m going to do that more.”
