Today is Breast Cancer Awareness Day at our school. The children are allowed to not wear school uniform provided they wear something pink and make a donation to the charity via the school.
Needless to say, my girls were delighted.
Abby wore pink **everything**.
Helen wore 90% pink
Some of the boys had pink hair gel; some of them couldn't bear the thought of wearing pink items and wore red items instead :-)
Tonight is the Seasonal Disco party at the school. The Head asked the PTA to call it a Seasonal Fancy Dress disco so as not to offend the tender sensibilities of some hardline parents who object to Halloween. We are not a faith-affiliated school, so I don't see why these parents were getting their panties in a wad. They do not have to let their children attend the disco if they feel that strongly, after all.......
The PTA were happy to accede to the head's request; after all, as a Seasonal themed disco, the children can come dressed up as vegetables for Harvest, fireworks for Bonfire Night or Halloween costumes. Plenty of scope there for costumes :-)
