If This Is What Passes For ‘Education’ These Days…

…then taxpayers are being royally stung!

Up to 60 children from Charlton Manor primary school have marched to save the bees.

The year six Bee Friendly march – organised by the school’s new campaigns group and supported by Friends of the Earth – took place on Friday, October 16 in Charlton Village, Charlton Park and the streets around the Indus Road school.

What the actual…?!

Campaigns group member Daisy Thackrah, 11, said: “We’re doing it to make people more aware of the threats to bees and what can be done to save them.

“We interviewed Sion Williams, from Friends of the Earth, on Charlton Manor News and he made it clear how serious the situation is.”

Isn’t this grooming?

Mr Williams said: “I think Charlton Manor’s Bee Friendly March is fantastic.

“It’s really great to see children getting together to show how much they care for the bees and it’s a great example of people power, which is what Friends of the Earth is really all about.”

Really? It’s not about getting access to young, impressionable minds to raise future activists, then?

    “…Friday, October 16…”

    I can only presume the teachers weren’t fined £60 per child for not actually being in school?

    Presumably the writing class focused on protest plaquards. “look children. The new words for today are ‘zozchialism’, ‘we-want’ and ‘now’. Don’t forget to tell your parents that it is they who are killing the bees”

    I’m sure the march improved the children’s bee-haviour!

    Noticed a big black box around my name too. Wonder if it’s because we’re admins or because all replies are like that?
