From the Hosepipe Herald, the town's biggest newspaper.

Hosepipe High remembers: Lisa L’Estrange

It’s been three years since the disappearance of Lisa L’Estrange, daughter of Hosepipe High Principal Sal L’Estrange. Police remain mystified over Lisa’s fate; no body was ever found and no evidence has come to light about what might have happened.

It appears it all went down on a Thursday evening. Father, Sal, remembers his daughter going out for the evening with her new boyfriend. “She was her normal, bubbly self,” Sal said to the television news at the time. “I didn’t know much about Keenan, he didn’t seem dangerous though.” Lisa was never seen again.

Mourned by her peers at the Hosepipe High School, Lisa was 14 when she vanished. Little is known about Keenan, but locals who encountered him described him as a young caucasian, attractive, well dressed and deeply suspicious.

We may never find out exactly what happened that night, but one hopes that where ever Lisa is now, she is happy. Hosepipe High is commemorating her with a memorial fountain this week, the funds were raised by the Cheerbeavers with a bake sale and readathon.

Welcome to Hosepipe High!

An interesting, creative, co-educational campus in the heart of Hosepipe, Washington, where learning is central and high expectations with effective teaching produce resilient, self-directed learners.

Our football team the Hosepipe Beavers have won the State Championships three years running. With the support of the Cheerbeavers we hope they’ll go to a record fourth year of victory. The Cheerbeavers are also award winners, coming in second place at the Tri-State Cheer competition last year. This year we all have to cheer them on, so they can win first place!

The gala dance event “Hosepipe Under the Sea” is a fundraiser for a new bus which will be used to transport the Beavers to the upcoming Championships and will also be available to other school clubs in the off season.

Teachers to watch out for!
~ by Robin Turner


Sal LeStrange. Our very own school principal. Mr L’Estrange is now entering his 15th year as head honcho of Hosepipe High! Mr L’Estrange takes the school rules seriously, so woe betide any student he finds in the teacher’s lounge or sneaking out of class. Mr L’Estrange is full of school spirit though, and he has volunteered to take time out of his weekend to chaperone the upcoming dance! Quote: “Dentention!”

Will Doctorow - Okay, so Ms Doctorow isn’t technically a teacher, and she isn’t a parent of a Hosepipe High student. She is on the Parent Teacher Association and she does put a lot of time and effort into ensuring our education is the very best it can be, and she’s always there to support the Mighty Beavers whenever they play. Quote: “Hosepipe isn’t just a small town, it’s a community!”

Bobby De’ath - Our new History teacher is taking some time finding his feet and he declined an interview with this reporter. Students in his classes report that history lessons have become very co-operative, with the teacher encouraging students to lead the learning. Quote: “Silent reading from your text book, class.”

Ms Venus - Breezing into town just a week ago, Ms Venus’s classes have fast become favourites for the students lucky enough to have already signed up for classics. Elaborate drawings of Greek statuary on the chalkboard, storytelling sessions and a rumoured field trip next term guarantee that Ms Venus is going to have a whole lot more students turning up! Quote: “No, bacchanals weren’t like that, they were more like this...” (followed by a demonstration)
