This morning in maths I got taken out of class by my head teacher and taken to her office. I was told that I could not take any more photos of my school dinners because of a headline in a newspaper today.
I only write my blog not newspapers and I am sad I am no longer allowed to take photos. I will miss sharing and rating my school dinners and Ill miss seeing the dinners you send me too. I dont think I will be able to finish raising enough money for a kitchen for Marys Meals either.
It isn't the school, it is the sodding council. Quite ridiculous and a glorious own goal from them. The council is run by a group including an Alliance of Independent Councillors, the Liberal Democrats and Conservative groups, making up 13 seats. SNP is the leading individual party with 9 seats but sits as the minority within the Council.
Having just heard this on the radio I think there is a large dose of pushy dad involved as well as the girl.
That said I don't see what harm she was doing. As people say the marks were pretty high in some cases. Photography is good and the dinners don't look bad. Not very big. But not bad by any stretch of the imagination.
The kid should be encouraged. School Head hadn't stopped it. The Council spokesman claimed that her blog was not representative as it did not show every choice that day and it was putting unfair pressure on staff Bollocks argument.
If the Council wants an argument they should talk to the Daily Record
PR shambles. My money is on the blog being back up in a week or so.
Would an establishment proud of its food and activities censor a child from blogging and photographing their output? Nothing to hide, nothing to fear. Well done Martha Payne, and I bet the food has improved
