This astonishing move seems to have come from the parents, not the staff. Seems there was an art "event" at the school, and it was open to "members of the public" (otherwise known as paedophiles and axe murderers).

The sports day has been postponed till 29/6, to allow a bit more time to decide.

What on earth is this about? |
"Norway has been hit by twin attacks - a massive bomb blast in the capital and a shooting attack on young people at a governing Labour Party youth camp.
"At least seven people were killed in the bombing, which inflicted huge damage on government buildings in Oslo.
"At least 10 more died at the camp, on an island outside Oslo, police say. One witness said he had seen 20 bodies.
"Police arrested the suspected gunman at the camp and the government have confirmed that he is Norwegian."
