As a punishment for truancy our grand child has been stopped from playing football and visiting his grand parents this year. In a conversation with the farther (who has custody since the death of our daughter 6 years ago) we found out he doesn't like our grandchild visiting us because he has a good time and gets with drawn when he comes home. He told me the school counsellor had agreed with the punishment but he also said with a slip of the tongue that the school wanted to take the rite to go on school camps away, which sounds a more logical response from a school councillor. How can taking the rites of Grand parents to see their grandchild be a punishment, its more like abuse. Can I ask the school to deny or confirm that they did sagest or even agree with the punishment imposed?
