Flipping Fantastic: Tristan's Backtrack

Tristan has been having two minds about going to Chesterlea Grange. He felt less safe and secure after leaving Peter Hill Primary. He also has doubts about his new school and how he can cope with it as most of his friends from Peter Hill Primary are going to Highfields along with James.

So, he became uncertain of his decision to go to Chesterlea Grange. He felt sad that he had to leave Peter Hill Primary and bad because he will also be leaving James.So during the summer holidays, he put on his thinking cap to re-evaluate the decision. He considered the position of James whom he felt will continue to be dependent on him because James lacks confidence and is shy. He feels that James will encounter problems in Highfields without him to help him along.

When James spoke to him, he realises that his brother would love him to be at Highfields. There were many reasons for doing so and most of them had to do with their co-dependence on each other.To Tristan, it would be a carry-over from Peter Hill Primary.

In influencing him to join him at Highfields, James also spoke about the benefits of Chesterlea Grange. Through his discussion with James, Tristan finally realizes and understands why his mother has chosen the school for him; and after weighing the pros and cons, Tristan is finally convinced that he will go to Chesterlea Grange after all.

Tristan is thankful to James for helping him see the issues more clearly which helped him to make up his mind to go to Chesterlea Grange.

Tristan's backtrack may not initially be welcomed by James but it was the best decision for all.
