I'm told they were pupils from The London Nautical School
Doesn't surprise me, especially after last summer when a group of pupils (Nautical uniform) loitered outside the tennis courts/doctors surgery on Columbo st, asking passersby/commuters for money, which was supposedly for sponsorship. They were taking the money never to be seen again!
Really? As a parent of a child at LNS i find your comments outrageous as well as very stupid. Firstly it is school holidays so the only kids in the school are the ones doing extra lessons for GCSE’s and A levels . Secondly the catchment area of the school is London wide so very unlikely that a large group of kids hanging around locally would be LNS pupils.
You base your outrageous accusation on the fact there were boys in LNS uniform asking people to sponsor them either for raising money for the school or for a good cause-this they were doing yards from the school in full school uniform where they could be seen by teachers public and the police and you imply they were taking the money never to be seen again-seen by whom-the school you? You have no proof that the boys did anything more than collect money and take it back to the school yet from this you think they turned into a marauding gang that mugged an innocent person- I’m sorry but yours really is one of the most stupid and un thought out posts i have seen in all my years of posting on this site.
I would not say the LNS boys are angels as that would be un true but the school does have a great record on discipline –not just my thoughts see Ofsted etc and is one of the few local schools that do not need to have teachers/police stationed outside the school and at local stops to control the kids
I am very angry that such a silly post mars the reputation not only of my son and his friends but also of one of the few good local schools.
