A school in Wales that barred a pupil from normal lessons because he’d had his head shaved for a cancer charity has allowed him back into classes, but only after more than 250 pupils walked out in protest.
The management of the Milford Haven School in West Wales said the extreme haircut was against its rules on appearance. The boy, 14 year old Rhys Johnson, whose aunt is battling cancer, was shaved at a Macmillan coffee morning, along with a 14 year old girl pal, Tesni Doherty-Bowen, who goes to a different school a few miles away and who was praised by her teachers for her fund-raising efforts for the charity.
Seems that some schools set their pupils good examples, and others bad ones. Let’s hope some of the older lads at the Milford Haven School take up the annual “Movember” charity challenge next month, and grow big ‘taches in protest. Now there’s pretty, boyo.
