Martha's Blog - School Dinners

Never Seconds gets Banned !

Ok this isn't a fishing related post but one about blogging in general.

Apparently Argyll and Bute district council have banned a wee girl, Martha Payne , from taking pictures of her school dinners and blogging about them because they didn't like what they were reading in the national press.

Never Seconds

" Goodbye.

This morning in maths I got taken out of class by my head teacher and taken to her office. I was told that I could not take any more photos of my school dinners because of a headline in a newspaper today.

I only write my blog not newspapers and I am sad I am no longer allowed to take photos. I will miss sharing and rating my school dinners and I’ll miss seeing the dinners you send me too. I don’t think I will be able to finish raising enough money for a kitchen for Mary’s Meals either.



Hey, Teacher,

Leave them kids alone......................

  1. Martha please don't let yourself be dragged down by these teachers of yours. I thought we lived in a free country where writing a blog about school dinners was perfectly legal. But it seems otherwise in this Draconian society we have created. In the words of great Pink Floyd, we don't need no education! It is getting to that isn't it? Martha did you complain about this action of your school or did you just stop writing the blog. Also, tell me what your parents thought about the whole thing. I just have a feeling inside of me which says that it is illegal for the school to say that. But i could be wrong. Anyways i have always enjoyed your blog and will miss it.
