School bans Valentine's Day cards - report
- School bans Valentines Day cards
- Say kids are too immature
- Kids believe bans are ridiculous
A BRITISH school has banned its pupils from sending cards on Valentine's Day, saying the youngsters are not mature enough for romance.
Ashcombe Primary School in England- which teaches students aged four to 11 - has threatened to confiscate any cards found on the premises in Somerset, southwest England, said the Times.
"Some children and parents encourage a lot of talk about boyfriends and girlfriends,'' wrote head teacher Peter Turner in a monthly newsletter.
"We believe that such ideas should wait until children are mature enough emotionally and socially to understand the commitment involved in having or being a boyfriend and girlfriend,'' he said in the letter to parents.
But the head teacher of the school, which has 419 pupils, came under fire for the Valentine card crackdown.
