Teacher slams children’s nativity play calling it "rubbish"

Children from Windsor Clive Primary School in Cardiff, UK, were left in tears after the head teacher told them their nativity play wasn’t good enough and they were misbehaving.

According to UK corespondent Adam Gilchrist, the parents were angry after the children reported what the head teacher had said.

They went to the school and stomped the gates and the police were called.

I think the head teacher might have been attempting tongue in cheek.

She told them the play was absolute rubbish and it will all be bread and water for the Christmas party if they didn't improve.
