Wiltshire headmistress punished naughty children by phoning God
To St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Primary School in Devizes, Wiltshire, where God is on the phone.
There is talk of “outrage” that headmistress Sheila Jones “humiliated children” by standing in the school’s prayer room and telling God via her mobile phone that the children had misbehaved.
Some parents have called Ofsted, who have asked Wiltshire Council’s safeguarding team to investigate.
Says outraged mum, Tammy Brimble, whose son Cyrus, 11, was grassed up to God:
“I don’t think this was at all appropriate. We are not Roman Catholics but it was still distressing for my child for her to call on God like that. I didn’t find out about it until we got home. Cyrus was very quiet and I could tell something was bothering him. When he told me what had happened to him and three other boys I was upset about the treatment but I wanted to find out why she did it.
“He didn’t think he had done anything wrong so I tried to speak to Mrs Jones about it but she refused to talk to me.”
Maybe Tammy should try contacting God directly on her own phone? If it worked once, maybe Cyrus will fall for it an second time. That is if it was a ruse and Jones wasn’t actually talking with God?
Because you can get the Supreme Being on the blower. Really you can:
