Project Black 4 from Anna's Blog!
Today has been so busy it's flown by! Here are my latest sunglasses; very cheap ones from Primark! I love sunglasses but am always losing them so now I buy cheap ones - I never really recovered from losing a very expensive pair when I was in my twenties!
Well done to those of you who guessed the lady on the mug was my literary idol, Jane Austen!
Work was really hectic and I was exhausted when I got home. Yesterday Sian was pinched, pushed and kicked in the corridor at school by two older pupils. When I heard what had happened I got in touch with the school and was assured it would be dealt with.
Today I find that whilst two teachers have been sympathetic and gave Sian an early lunch pass, another one basically interrogated her about the incident, asked her to show her bruises in order to "prove" she'd been hurt and seemed to be implying that Sian either provoked the incident, made it up or was in fact the aggressor. Today Sian was called a snitch and worse by these girls, and is too worried to go to school tomorrow.
I feel despairing. It's hard to take a stand against bullies as you always suffer a backlash for "telling". I would expect teaching staff to be at least impartial.
