A school mum has been left shellshocked after receiving a bizarre warning note from her son's teacher over his lunchbox.
While some children enjoy getting up bright and early, most need a bucket of water thrown on them to get them out of bed.
I know most of us have never tried this, but it does sound fun.
However, once they're all dressed and their packed lunches are safely stored in their backpack, all you have to do is drop them off - mission accomplished.
What you don't expect is them to come home with a teacher's note.
Not about their work, or their clothes, but about their food.
Mum Jenna took to social media to reveal that her son's tutor sent a 'gentle reminder' to 'pack snacks and not lunches'.
"Can someone enlighten me [as to] why teachers think it's too much for a snack if he eats it all," Jenna wrote alongside a photo of her son's lunchbox.
On this occasion, she packed her kid a ham and cheese sandwich, cucumber slices, yoghurt, sultanas and almonds.
Commenting on the post, one parent thought: "I’m thinking he probably takes longer than the other kids to eat.
"It’s messing up [the teacher's] schedule."
Another added: "That's a lunch sized portion of food, not a snack.
"They have a policy of not taking food away from kids who are still eating so he's holding up class."
However, others assured Jenna there is nothing wrong with her portion size.
"You know your son’s appetite better than anyone," one mum replied.
"You pack what works for your son. I thinks it’s great."
Someone else said: "If your child is eating it all, then he needs it. Trust you! Keep rocking it mamma."
Well, this comes after parents continue to voice their ongoing concerns around the issue of reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (Raac).
In some schools, children have been told they cannot return to the classroom after collapse-prone Raac was found in school buildings.
The letter - from the school leaders’ union NAHT - read: “It cannot be right that school leaders and their teams are charged with making decisions about the immediate risk of harm if they discover or are concerned that Raac is present on their site.
“They do not have the relevant expertise to make such assessments.
“Members of our unions, particularly in leadership positions, may be faced with calls from staff or the public to evacuate the site or parts of that site if there is any uncertainty whatsoever.”
