Quite nice to see the streets occupied.Having 1200 school children on your doorstep is quite significant. I ask you to take a few seconds to think about how you would feel about a secondary school being placed a 5 minute walk from your home.

As soon as she came through the door she burst into tears. It turns out that 4 schoolgirls from the local school threw coca cola and chips at her because she had accidently bumped into them on the pavement.
All her coat was wet with coca cola and tomato sauce. She was really shaken up by the experience.
Now I am not suggesting that all school children behave in this way. I am also fully aware that this can happen anywhere but you will have to forgive me for not sharing your sentiments about having my local streets filled with school kids.
