UK: School bans energy drinks over learning fears - report
A UK school has banned energy drinks over fears they are interfering with learning, according to a report.
The Pingle School in south Derbyshire also said the cans could get caught in school lawnmowers and injure pupils, the Daily Telegraph reported yesterday (20 June). The move comes less than two weeks after reports that a school in Australia was also stopping pupils consuming the drinks.
"We do not allow energy drinks in school, as in many cases, they do not create the best conditions for learning,” Pingle's headteacher Vivien Sharples was reported as saying.
“I should also like to remind you that cans are not allowed on site as they pose a hazard, particularly in summer when they get shredded in the mower.”
