A teenage rebellion in Runcorn achieved a partial victory today as The Grange agreed to a temporary reprieve over its ban on wearing charity badges on their blazers.
A school spokeswoman confirmed on Tuesday that pupils would be allowed to don their ribbons and Marie Curie daffodils until a permanent resolution comes about.
In a letter sent out to parents today, head of school Barry Carney said he was 'suspending the rule' because of the amount of 'disruption' to learning.Well, good for you, kids! Bathe in the glory of your victory over being told what to wear. Just don't think that'll cut any ice in the world of work, eh?
Lily Gaynor, student, rang the ECHO's sister paper the Runcorn and Widnes Weekly News from ‘isolation’ where she and about 20 others were being kept to give firsthand details of their mass detention.
She was even asked by a teacher to end the call as she tried to provide information about the classes’ struggle.'Her struggle'..? Why, she's like Martin Luther King, isn't she?
