Are you ready for those heart strings to be tugged?
Today's school had a young child who was recently adopted. The circumstances do not sound ideal but we've no need to share those.
Understandably you will understand that the school were a little nervous of taking said child to a museum where
1. their old school might also be visiting
2. contains police cars (for reasons that are perfectly clear when you know the story)
Being human once the situation was explained I offered to block book the museum (I.e. no other groups could visit on the same day) and pop our most modern police car in the back car park out of the way. A simple three minute jobbie that is hardly breaking a sweat to accommodate the group. Yes we might loose out on a bit of (much needed) income but in the long run could you really go about knowing that otherwise the child would have been left while their entire class went out for the day presumably either to spend the day in a strange class or worse on their own?
Anyway we had an awesome day. And then the teacher gave me this...
A parent shouldn't have to feel the need to thank me for being a decent human but isn't it lovely that she did?
