School bans Valentine's Day cards

Valentine cards

A primary school has decided to ban kids sending Valentine cards to each other, because the head teacher is worried some will feel left out.

The teachers have told parents they're going to confiscate any cards they find pupils trying to send to each other.

The head teacher reckons if you get upset about not getting a card, it's bad for your learning at school.

But most of the kids' parents think it's a silly rule, and they don't mind their children sending cards.
