Amir came home very upset and very stressed today, I feel bad for him, I feel bad that Amir at the age of only 8 years old had lost trust in his school mates. it all started this term at school when they began to learn about the ancient Egyptian civilisation, recently they were shown pictures of Tutankhamun, Amir was excited and told the class that he has a replica Tutankhamun casket with a little mummy inside it, the class and teacher asked him if he can bring it and show it at class time, I got him this beautiful little item from Egypt sometime ago and he absolutely loved it, it was always standing proudly on his desk in his bedroom. This morning he took it to school and showed it proudly to his teacher and class mates, by this afternoon it was stolen from his school bag while he was having his lunch, his teacher found him in a stressed state looking all over the room for his mummy, she gathered all the kids and asked them to empty their bags and pockets but it was no where to be seen.
He is angry with the school, angry with everyone in his class, he can not trust any of them any more, he learnt today that 8 year olds can be thieves too!
I have made a fuss, I phoned the school, I sent an email and sent a letter by post to the head teacher, they promised to do a full search on Monday and if the item is not found then they will send letter to all parents asking them if their children brought this item to their home. I myself do not expect it to be found.
This is the state of most schools in London, full of kids from dysfunctional backgrounds that have no manners what so ever, have no respect for their teachers or any adults, most of them can get away with anything as no one has any control over them and here I am not talking about just white kids! London school kids come from all over the world and unfortunately while this might sound bad but the reality is that most bad kids are not white but Arab, Asian and Black, most of these kids come from families that turn a blind eye to their kids bad behaviour and end up accusing the good people of being nasty and abusive to their precious little angels.
The mummy was not an expensive item but Amir loved it and was proud of it and wanted to share it with his class mates, he will not be doing that anymore!
