They could have done it in such way as to let parents deal with it (if they wanted to, I'm very good at distracting from their awkward questions when the need arises) by maybe saying it was a minutes silence for a teacher that passed away with out going in to the detail. Or just let the teachers have their minute silence in their breakroom with out the pupils.I dont get it.. my little one has only just turned 8. She has never even considered the concept of murder, or that it might actually happen somebody. First questions after she came in the door is why a person would murder another person. What happened the teacher, how did he murder her. Can it happen us etc etc. The look of confusion on her face, she hasn't a hope of processing this
You would imagine that in an institution that specialises in children that they might have considered some of this stuff
All schools were told by Department of Education to hold a minutes silence today at 11 o'clock. I suppose they felt obligated to do something given her profession.
