Being a working parent who works with 30 odd other parents, how on earth can we fit our leave into a 6 week period, they will end up not employing mums....... this country is becoming so dictatorial. Corrina B.

Wimbledon – Tennis Ball Boys & Girls – How did they get permission ?

It has been brought to our attention today a very good question that I thought I would share with everyone.

As we all know there were Boys & Girls present at Wimbledon fetching the balls for the players. Well how did they manage to get permission for time off school to attend or are Boys and Girls who are ball people only taken from Private School’s where this law doesn’t apply.

This is a very interesting question and one that It would be good to hear from anyone that is able to answer this question.

We are hearing so many stories from Parents where they are being fined for taking their kids out of school during term time for lots and lots of different reasons, however teachers are allowed to take our kids on school day trips and school holidays.
