School trip was too dangerous
YOU'D think it was time to be more cautious during the recent snowfall.
On the first day it fell I wasn't sure if my daughter would be attending Ash Green Primary School.
After finding out the school was open as usual, I dropped my daughter off in the knowledge (or so I thought) she would be in good hands.
Why then, did the school on this very day decide to attempt to take three coaches of nearly 150 Year 5 and 6 pupils on a theatre trip?

The coaches set off in heavy snowfall from the school in Trentham to the New Vic Theatre.
Thankfully, the drivers had the sense to turn back, as the roads were too hazardous.
After well over an hour, the coaches returned.
I was wondering if the person who gave this school trip the go-ahead had actually been watching the news for the past week as we all had plenty of warning.
Only a couple of years ago a school trip ended in tragedy on its way to Alton Towers in very similar weather conditions.
Thankfully, no one was hurt in any way on this occasion, but I feel things could easily have turned out a lot worse.
