Prospective Student Narrative

Climbing the vertical cliff, John balanced onto an unsteady rock. Wiping the sweat off his face he was so exhausted and did one almighty stretch up and pulled himself over the ledge. He was so relieved that he made it over the lofty mountain. John was lucky that he survived this long journey.

While walking up a steady hill John finally made it to the Dojo. Standing there with butterflies in his stomach he walked up to the door and knocked. The door opened with a creaky sound. John’s heart was beating fast. He thought that the sensei was going to let him in, but when the sensei pointed to his right, John’s face dropped. When the sensei closed the door, the boy felt sad. So John decided to meditate to prove that he could become a ninja.

The next morning John knocked on the towering door again. As the sensei opened the door, John asked “can I come in please?”. But the sensei pointed to the right again. John was wondering why he pointed so he decided to walk on.

So John kicked open the door, John had an angry frown on his face. So he waited for the sensei to turn up, John was wondering if he was going to point again or let him in.  But when the sensei pointed again, John looked at where his finger was pointing and there was a sign held up saying ‘USE THE SIDE ENTRANCE TO ENTER’. John felt embarrassed because he misunderstood what the sensei had been trying to tell him.
