Death by Tinsel

Filed under: News — 08:53 Fri 17 Dec 04

School ban on ‘dangerous’ tinsel – “the tinsel could cause injury if pupils tried to strangle each other.
Which idiot dreamt THAT one up ?
So…no belts /scarves / ties / laces then. No hands – best keep them in our pockets save you feel the need to grasp a neck firmly. Oh… damn … boys must not keep their hands in their pockets, or anyone else’s.

South Gloucs Council – Fools. Let teachers teach – all you’ve actually done is given the pupils an incredibly easy way to rebel, a very easy topic of disruptive classroom conversation, and you’ve made the job of the teachers that much harder.


  1. What the f*? Haha! That’s made my day, cheers Mark!

    Who are these people who clearly have too much time on their hands to make up these stupid rules. First conkers and now this, ridiculous. I suppose all kids should be taught to be lifeless zombies with no experience of real life or things such as “fun”. It’s no wonder they get up to so much trouble after school -their minds need to stretch after being deprived of all fun, excitement (and now sanity) for eight hours a day, five days a week!

  2. It’s beyond ridiculous in schools now.

    I know somebody that used to work as a classroom helper in an infants school and was told that she wasn’t allowed to give a child a hug after she’d fallen over and hurt herself quite badly. That was the final straw for her and she quit that job.

    Schools live in fear of getting sued by money grabbing parents. It’s sad, but that’s how it is.

  3. But it’s gone too far, in my local primary school recently the nearly dropped the easter egg and sppon race -because they couldn’t afford the insurance!

    And they’ve already banned snowball fights! Mind you didn’t half sting!
