Another little gem from the British press back home - Weston-super-Mare school bans valentine cards...

He said: "Ashcombe is a primary school and they believe that children under the age of 11 are still emotionally and socially developing and therefore cards declaring love can be confusing.
"Any families wishing to send cards are asked to send them in the post or deliver to home addresses by hand."


So you can send them at home...but not at school?
So the ban has nothing to do with their age then!
