  12. 12. This morning in maths I got taken out of class by my head teacher and taken to heroffice. I was told that I could not take any more photos of my school dinners becauseof a headline in a newspaper today.I only write my blog not newspapers and I am sad I am no longer allowed to takephotos. I will miss sharing and rating my school dinners and I’ll miss seeing thedinners you send me too. I don’t think I will be able to finish raising enough money fora kitchen for Mary’s Meals either.Goodbye,VEG
