Teachers at Hockley Primary School in Chevening Gardens waited outside to give parents a Kit Kat with a note, providing comfort to parents on their children's first day.I'm sure if Jamie Oliver had dreamed up this stunt, it would have been a carrot baton...
The note said:
"It's your little one's first day.
"And though your heart may ache.
"We're here to help them find their wings.
"So today you can take a break!"Ugh! That's more saccharine than the sweets!
Simon Harris, the author of the Southend News Network, felt the gifts were a perfect way to start the relationship between parents and teachers.The world's gone mad!
