Budding Photojournalist Banned From Photo Reporting At School

UPDATE 20 June: after going viral for a couple of days and clocking up over 4m hits this blog is back up and running…Good!

When creativity gets blocked!…
A young photojournalist who reviews her school dinners by uploading a photo of each meal then reviewing it on her blog – Never Seconds – has been told to stop by her Head Teacher. The blog has gone viral with over 2 million hits and climbing..

This is the note posted yesterday:
This morning in maths I got taken out of class by my head teacher and taken to her office. I was told that I could not take any more photos of my school dinners because of a headline in a newspaper today.

I only write my blog not newspapers and I am sad I am no longer allowed to take photos. I will miss sharing and rating my school dinners and I’ll miss seeing the dinners you send me too. I don’t think I will be able to finish raising enough money for a kitchen for Mary’s Meals either.

The students Dad then added his comments about the situation…
Veg’s Dad, Dave, here. I felt it’s important to add a few bits of info to the blog tonight. Martha’s school have been brilliant and supportive from the beginning and I’d like to thank them all. I contacted Argyll and Bute Council when Martha told me what happened at school today and they told me it was their decision to ban Martha’s photography. It is a shame that a blog that today went through 2 million hits, which has inspired debates at home and abroad and raised nearly £2000 for charity is forced to end….

Be interesting to know if the school has any Mac computers…
