If I was a parent of a child at that school, I'd be asking why they didn't choose to raise the money for some science or perhaps sports equipment, rather than a place where the children can sit and try and unravel the confusing and contradictory 'spiritual' fairy tales that are rammed down their throats, irrespective of the more pragmatic views of the parents. Perhaps the headteacher could use the garden to go and have a long think about that. Or perhaps read some Darwin.

I have no problem with a garden, a quiet place, but why the word 'spiritual' has to be used is amazing. Schools should be about about education and logic - gardens are not 'spiritual'- what nonsense. What propaganda...

It's 'spiritual' because there's a sodding great cross in the middle of it. No prizes for guessing what 'local organisations' were involved then. Catch them nice and early when they're impressionable, eh?
