Balls Banned at Bubblewrap Public School

Krau Ming (1620473) writes "from TFA:
"The happy days of kicking a ball around at recess ended Monday after students took home a letter advising that henceforth, no child could bring a soccer ball, football, volleyball or even tennis ball to the junior and senior school... The letter stated that there have been a “few serious incidents” in which staff and students have been hit, or come close to being struck, by flying balls. From now on, only Nerf balls or sponge balls can be brought to school."

The bubblewrapping of our children continues...when will it end? Won't someone please just think of the children???"
