Even after we have left school, the idea of being given out to by the principal would cause many of us to break out into a cold sweat, so we can only imagine how Myleene Klass is feeling after the headmaster of her kids' school publicly gave her a dressing down.
The former Hear'Say singer was in shock after two mums in her daughters’ school sent around an email asking for £10 in cash rather than a birthday gift for their children and proceeded to share it with her followers.
While there were many people who agreed with the single mum, there were quite a few, including the Headmaster at her kids’ school, who were not impressed. In fact, the Head went so far as saying: "As my granny would've said, if you can't tweet anything nice, don't tweet anything at all."
According to The Daily Mail, the head of the £5,000-a-term school reprimanded the model in a newsletter that went out to all parents. In it she wrote about “fundamental British values” saying that “our pupils are young, receptive, and eager to learn”.
“It was not my intention to use the [newsletter] this week as a soap box, but here it comes … how I wish I could focus on your daughters' education and not on responding to media trivia. How many times this week have I been asked to comment/act/intervene/reprimand/ … do something! Mutual respect and tolerance. FBV. We actively promote them – do you? I needed to get that off my chest. Now, on with the week's round up of [school] news. No more parking on zig zags. No more blocking in the neighbours. No more unicorns. And as my granny would've said, if you can't tweet anything nice, don't tweet anything at all," she said.
We wonder if Myleene will have anything to say about this?
