It’s been a wet one today. Torrents of rain. Definitely a two coat day. Great rhubarb weather.
It’s been torrent of school emails as well. One instructing parents about what happens if a child is late to school. Another email confirming that non uniform days had been cancelled due to inappropriate behaviour. Then an email instructing pupils that no jewellery (except an ear stud) is appropriate in a school setting. That’s on top of emails earlier about the length of skirts and inappropriate gym kit. Then I hear someone from the Government talk about the need for longer school hours and greater discipline.
Some parents may love the sound of this. This parent is shaking his head.
With all that’s gone on in the world over the last couple of years, with the current dreadful news, aren’t our youngsters already having to cope with more than enough stress. Let’s not have school add to that….
