I am interested in encouraging a greater transparency, and I've made those views clear already at the school. Saying some of your points would be more at home on an expose website is more a comment on the way you've phrased them than the issues themselves. I wasn't writing an advert, I was bringing...

Why not Dietry recomendations? Lots of religions have dietary requirements, why should the SES be any different. Besides which, they may win some cudos with vegetarians - remember, it is the product. It was quite strange that you should pick up on diet as I would have thought that was pretty much th...

...Alban, it wasn't a flippant comment about my views. I have in fact just joined the marketing team. Some of your suggestions are things I would be pushing to have emphasised. Others I think are very much more at home on an "expose" website than in an advert for an organisation Hang on a minute Be...

...I don't think anyone here questions that what you experienced was over-the-top. What I do question is whether you can write off an organisation and its teacher's beliefs because people acted wrongly. IF (big if) the organisation concerned was to recognise past mistakes and did everything within ...

What I am saying "anti-SES", is that any organisation has to be extremely careful about what they do, how they do it and who they do it to. An organisation that essentially charges money for "advice" needs to be whiter-than-white, and given the SES's attrocious record of pastoral care of their child...

... kids 0-5 shouldn't be subjected to any physical or emotional pressure, and that boundary-setting and all interactions need to happen through love and play only. ...The idea is that you try not to use physical or emotional force on the child under 5. Nothing wrong with a firm "NO" and physically...

Hey guys, don't beat yourselves up about "being deceived". The SES has had about half a decade to hone the advertising and patter to something that is in spirit wholely misleading, but in letter just-about defendable. I think, actually, you need to congratulate yourselves for getting out quite so qu...

Shout, The SES is a bit like a smoking habit...they're both bad for you, cause you pain, and require you to pay for the priviledge :eggface: Do you or have you ever smoked? I have. Before all of the health hazards were known about, it was considered a cool thing to do, and no-body saw any harm in it...
