Ely’s King’s School has grown accustomed to their students being high achievers, but last Thursday some students interpretation of ‘high’ took on an entirely different meaning!
In a shock disclosure it was reported that five public schoolboys at Ely’s prestigious Â£19,000 a year King’s School have been permanently excluded after being caught in possession of cannabis.
Headteacher Sue Freestone wrote to all parents: ‘At King’s we work to convey the dangers of consuming illegal substances.
‘It is a source of great sadness to the whole community the trust we have placed in these individuals has been betrayed.’
Of course parents of the pot smoking dopeheadz are outraged that their high maintenance children’s expensive education has gone up in smoke and feel they have been treated badly. One parent, obviously too ashamed of their child to give their name, wants the pupils reinstated and said in the Cambridge Evening News: ‘The school seems to have discovered tiny quantities of cannabis had occasionally changed hands on school premises.’
‘Of course the ringleaders should be given a stern talking to and cautioned but there is no need to deploy tactics reminiscent of the Spanish Inquisition in bringing those pupils to book.’
Let’s hope the ringleader wasn’t your child then madam!
