Parents angered as Jojo Bows banned in schools across the country

first_imgParents across the country have vented their annoyance on social media after schools banned the latest tween craze: ‘Jojo Bows’.The oversized hair bows cost about £12 each in some stores, and mothers have vented their annoyance after splashing out on the accessories, only for them to be banned shortly afterwards.The popular accessories came to prominence after being worn by social media star JoJo Siwa, a 13-year-old dancer and singer from Nebraska in the US. That #babycino tasted good #jojobows pic.twitter.com/C9S8OZlGom— Emma-Jane (@ej100) March 5, 2017 Another mother commented that they had been banned at her daughter’s school “because of the ‘that’s not a real jojo bow’ and the competitiveness of them. E.g. How many and which colours and do you have the limited edition ones!”Some have spoken out about the ban, saying schools should be tackling bigger issues.One woman commented on Twitter: “How about we deal with kids being bullied in school and committing suicide rather than banning #jojobows!” I just don’t get these JoJo Bows – I think they’re the ugliest most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen?!? Obvs Carys wants one though 😔…— Jenny dargavel (@jennydargavel) March 5, 2017 @leonardhudsonuk #jojobows shouldn’t be banned. It doesn’t stop kids from learning. It also makes them look tidy. No harm being done at all— Shez (@SheridanAlcock) March 4, 2017 And another commented: “They shouldn’t be banned. It doesn’t stop kids from learning. It also makes them look tidy. No harm being done at all.”One mother wrote on Mumsnet: “Who here didn’t wear something daft when they were a kid. It’s harmless, I personally think they look ridiculous but it’s not my head.”According to Department of Education guidelines, schools are within their rights to ban the bows. “I’ve always just worn bows” JoJo told CBBC’s Newsround.”They just got bigger and better and sparklier – and then I became ‘JoJo with the bow bow’ and it became a thing.”However, schools throughout the country have banned the hair bows, because they do not comply with some school uniform codes and are ‘distracting’. One Mumsnet user revealed they were banned in her daughter’s school because they caused bullying.She wrote: “Yes, they fuelled a type of bullying so the head teacher banned them outright.  Fortunately my daughter thought they looked ridiculous so was never drawn into that particularly hideous fad.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Better that they concentrate on teaching, stopping drug use/smoking in schools & better sex ed.” Just seen an article about UK schools banning #JoJoBows (huge bow hair clip basically)…seriously?

SNCLavalin and McConnell Dowell joint venture wins Rolleston Coal EPC

first_imgSNC-Lavalin Australia, in joint venture with McConnell Dowell Constructors (Aust), has been awarded a project by Rolleston Coal to provide EPC services for the Rolleston 5th Coal Valve Project located in the Bowen Basin, 275 km west of Gladstone, Australia. The EPC contract includes the installation of a fifth coal valve in the product stockpile, lengthening of a reclaim tunnel and associated reclaim conveyor, as well as extending product stacker rails and minor upgrades to power and water services.“We and our joint-venture partner, McConnell Dowell, are delighted to have been entrusted with this mandate by Rolleston, and to be able to provide a real alternative for EPC contracting in the coal industry,” said Marius van Tonder, Senior Vice-President and Regional Manager, Asia-Pacific, SNC-Lavalin Group Inc.The strategic partnership between SNC-Lavalin and McConnell Dowell brings together engineering and construction expertise to provide an alternative project delivery solution, including EPC and lump sum turnkey projects, in the mining and resource sectors.Rolleston is an open-pit thermal coal mine, with current approved production levels of up to 14 Mt/y. Rolleston Coal is a joint venture managed by Glencore. It is now seeking approval to extend the life of the existing Rolleston Coal mine by approximately 30 years and this involves extracting coal from leases adjacent to the current mining operations.The majority of the coal is exported and the mine provides some product to the domestic markets.With its joint venture partners Sumisho Coal Australia and ICRA Rolleston the proposal is to expand  operations and Rolleston is in the process of seeking the required environmental approvals.The project area covers 12,758 ha of land. However, mining is not proposed within the full project area with direct impacts (disturbance of the ground for construction and mining) limited to a smaller area of 5,649 ha. The project site covers a small portion of the existing mining lease ML70307 and three additional Mining Lease Application areas, MLA70415, MLA 70416 and MLA70458.The picture shows Stage7 (closure).last_img read more
