A primary school in the west has reportedly made it compulsory for all pupils to bring a book with them to recess, or they would not be allowed to eat.

The pupils allegedly have to read the books after recess while queueing to go back to class.

"Just imagine students having to carry book in one hand, a water bottle in another and still having the need to hold their food in probably an imaginary extra hand," said*the parent.*

"What is this 5 min of reading after recess time going to make ? Personally as a reader, if I'm only given such amount of time, when I pick up the book up again, I will have to re-read the parts which I was asked to read in the first place.

"Kids are not allowed to eat or purchase ANY food if they fail to bring the books down for recess. What gives the school these rights to forbid my child from eating or take away their break during recess time.

"When the kids go out to the field to play, the books are to be placed on the floor and everyone who runs or walks pass, steps on it.

damn stupid to squeeze reading into like 5 mins of recess time. kids would feel that their precious 30 mins of free time kena eaten.. which may lead to things like associating this unhappiness with reading
