From Sir Without Love



Why are so many head teachers running their schools like they’re in charge of every aspect of a child’s life? Schools are educational institutions but we keep hearing about kids being sent home for ridiculous non-education related things like having the wrong haircut.

This week a School headteacher has banned pupils from having boyfriends and girlfriends. He’s even threatening to give them poor university references. These are kids who are aged 16 and 17.

Toby Belfield is the principal of Ruthin School in Wales. He emailed pupils warning them anyone in a relationship would “definitely get a worse reference”.

According to the Daily Post, he sent out an email that read: “I strongly disapprove of any boyfriend/girlfriend relationships – and it will always affect any university reference I write (meaning – any student in a relationship will definitely get a worse reference from me)”. He also wrote, “Relationships can start at university – and not at Ruthin School. I will be talking to staff and, as in previous years, I will put together a list of any student with a boyfriend or girlfriend. These students – if in L6 or F5 can expect to find new schools in September. School is not the place for romantic relationships – ever”.

It looks like it hasn’t changed that much since I was a school. They’re still prejudiced against cool kids and stack all of the rules in favour of the spods.

Craic on!
