Raise Income in Schools

Everyday literally thousands of pounds is spent by secondary school children at shops and fast food vans etc outside school gates.

There are several ways this income could be obtained by schools;-

Better Offering in Dinner School

GCC Owned Fast Food vans outside schools

Limiting the amount of time pupils can leave school at breaks.

Why the contribution is important

Raises revenue which means fewer cuts to services would be required.

    They will simply burden the NHS in the future.
    I have been to hospitals and it's not a pleasant site to see people stuck with tubes and labouring to breathe.

    The amount raised would be too low and cost more to administer.

    It be better for children to eat less altogether or train them to only eat at home.

    They already suffer from obesity and can be seen huffing and puffing as they try to get in and out of the car which their thoughtless parents drive to school.

    Thanks Moneysaver for advocating active transport, yes children should be encouraged to cycle and walk to school. In fact why are the parents driving their children to work. They have two options one suggested by Moneysaver they should be car sharing. Now one of the few ways that childern will be encouraged / allowed to cycle to work is proper segregated cycle lane. So Moneysaver l expect you now actively encourage people to cycle both to work and also to school as that is obviously what you are suggesting here.

    Unless dare l say it you intend is purely and only to wind people up?

    The food offered in school dining halls is pretty much governed by the scottish government as they want to promote healthy eating. The council therefore, would not, even if it wanted to, be allowed to start selling pot noodles, sausage suppers, pizza, or kebabs. And since this is what kids go to takeaways for at lunch time, I don's see there being a viable option for the council to make money from this. Best way is for them to educate and promote healthy eating and the effects of not eating healthily in my opinion. Then the takings in the dinner hall might go up...
