UK school bans hugs, high-fives and handshakes


Recommended Posts

Parents are fuming after secondary school pupils were banned from hugging, high-fiving or shaking hands with each other with a strict 'no contact' rule.

Pupils at Mossley Hollins High School in Greater Manchester have also been barred from sitting on overcrowded benches, playfighting and even holding a place for friends in the lunch queue.

'No student should ever be touching another student,' the school headed by Mrs Andrea Din in Mossley, Ashton-under-Lyne announced in its latest newsletter.

A current pupil slammed the the rules as 'ridiculous' and 'unfair' after she had to ask a teacher for permission for a friend to hug her after she hurt herself.
