Reading the ABC story School puts the ban in banana, I had thought April Fools day had come twice this year. Yesterday press were invited to report on Kevin Rudd listening to student’s environmental concerns at O’Connor Cooperative School, and apparently the invite included a warning for members of the press not to attend if they had eaten a banana in the previous 12 hours because of allergy concerns!
I think the press would be more interested in the PM, than the students – and in the unlikely event the press do want to talk to a student, I don’t think they’ll be locking lips (McDondald’s style). So if a student can’t handle being near a person who has eaten a banana for breakfast, then maybe the student needs to: keep their distance from others; carry an epipen; or wear a face mask. Next year we’ll be banning water in schools.
