Swine flu: head wins support
I am writing to say that, although you had one quote from a parent at Brixington School about the swine flu outbreak, myself and many other parents totally agree with head Mr Galling s decision.

I have two children at the school, both of whom have experienced `flu-like symptoms` in the past week. I kept them both off school until they were better, and did not expect the school to close.
Much of the problems come from irresponsible parents who send their children into school when they are unwell and should be at home.
If Mr Galling had closed the school, how long would it have stayed closed - a week or two? - until most children are better? There are always going to be some children not well at any given time. All the children I know, who have been ill, were experiencing only mild symptoms and were well after a few days.
