A Thornton Heath mum has demanded that the council replace "inadequate" kitchen facilities that she says have left pupils at one of Croydon's biggest primary schools going hungry.It appears a leaking roof has closed the kitchen while repairs are made.
Are children really ‘going hungry’ as a result?
No. Of course not.
Pupils will be fed sandwiches while the cooking facilities are closed.So…what’s the problem? Well, it’s the same old culprit once again; parents who think it's the job of the state to feed their spawn:
But Donna, a parent governor at the school, said children had complained of being hungry last time the kitchen shut.
She said: "There are a lot of children whose school meal is their only hot meal of the day. They are not getting a hot meal at home and they are not getting one at school.
"Those kids are going hungry. It is not good enough."
Now Donna - whose daughters Rickela, 11, Tashwana, 10, and Lyneeka, eight…*speechless*
… all attend Winterbourne Junior Girls' - has now launched a petition calling for councillors to replace the pod and pay for a permanent kitchen to be built on-site.
She has collected over 400 signatures so far. "I don't see why they can't give us a satisfactory kitchen," said Donna.
"The pod is inadequate and I don't think it is fair. I think our children deserve a kitchen and a canteen that is fit for purpose."*still speechless*
