Dear Editor,

Re:-Anger over Shepway primary school slaughtering sheep

There are many ways to teach children where food comes from without them having to raise and kill an animal.

This is not an inner city school, we are surrounded by sheep, all previous pupils over the years at Lydd know where meat comes from without raising a sheep for slaughter.

The Headmistress asked them to vote to make a decision on the sheep's future before they had learnt what it entails.

Could the headmistress say how she learnt where meat came from?

Is this just a piece of self indulgence and attention seeking by the headmistress?

Where does it end, is she going to keep a cow to know where milk comes from?
