    What do you think of a high school that gives out 1 1/4 hour management detentions for hugging someone or holding hands?

    If we were to suddenly get up in the middle of an important lesson or during an assembly, run to eachother screaming "OH MY GOD I LOVE YOU SO MUCH" and hug then I'd understand if I received a detention..

    Otherwise, I think they are trying to be politically correct but honestly, it sounds like front page material of 'The Sun'. Threaten to go to the tabloids

    At first I thought you were my old high school (we all heard the 'no hugging', 'boys and girls must be a meter apart at all times', 'no thongs' rumours after we left). But that was years 7-9.

    Err... I'd spend my life in detention then. I'm a very huggy person. Not touchy-feely, just huggy.

    Were you being all OTT with your PDAs or something? Surely they wouldn't hand out a detention just for hugging someone?!

    You would think that but they interrupted our controlled business coursework exam to announce to us that from now on hugging isn't allowed. -like wtf!

    N not OTT on it, some people already got management DTs

    I hate when teachers get stupid over things like that when there are real problems to be tackled in school!
