ALIENS exist - and this week one visited St Hedda’s school in Egton Bridge.
An extra-terrestrial by the name of Org made his presence known to pupils at the school, although he appears to have been too shy to meet the children face-to-face.
On Wednesday morning people arrived at school to discover evidence of an alien encounter in and around their school. Kelsey Eddington (9), said: “I have believed in them all my life but I can’t believe aliens are actually real. I thought they would stay in their own galaxy.”
St Hedda’s pupils, who have been learning about space with teacher Leanne Evans, were first contacted by the alien when they received a letter. Org, who is from the planet Orb, said he wanted the children’s help to learn more about Earth, and so he asked for their advice about possible landing sites.
Then, on Wednesday, strange footprints were found running through the school, while outside strange metal objects and what appeared to be a scorched landing site appeared. Gracie Elder (8) said: “It’s probably the most exciting part of school since I have been here.”
Police were called and put up tape to cordon off certain areas, but the children were able to get a close look at the evidence. “Somebody has come to our school and left goo and metal things in our classroom,” said Carla Brown (7). “It is really exciting.”
