In case you haven’t heard, there’s going to be a solar eclipse thingy tomorrow morning.
But before you don your eclipse viewing glasses spare a thought for the many school children across the country who have been forbidden to watch the rare cosmic phenomenon.
The old beast ‘health a safety’ has reared its head once again, and several British school children are reportedly being forced to experience the once-in-a-lifetime event sat indoors watching a live feed of the eclipse on a computer screen.
Students at Oldway Primary school in Devon will have to suffer this fate, the BBC reports.
Head teacher Jane Smythe said she feared they wouldn’t be able to ensure none of the 700 pupils wouldn’t look directly into the sun and damage their eyesight.
Many parents have taken to Twitter the vent both support for and disdain towards the rulings.
All this precaution might be a little unnecessary however, as most of the UK is forecast to be overcast tomorrow morning when the eclipse takes place.
South Wales is one of the only areas expected to have clear skies during the eclipse – hopefully the kids there don’t hurt their eyes watching it.
