"Far too often people say I don’t want to go there, and have preconceived notions of what it will be like. I always tell people you can do anything or go anywhere for a short time, it doesn’t mean you have to spend the rest of your life there. But the experience can be invaluable for your career.

Gayle Hazelwood is ‎Deputy Regional Director at National Park  Atlanta, America.

Earlier this month CNN reported that  the European rights court ruled in favor of French burqa ban. In France the law says nobody can wear clothing that conceals the face in public. The penalty for doing so can be a 150 -euro fine (£120). A French Muslim women didn’t agree with this new law, she argued that the ban violated her freedom of religon and expression and brought her case to the European Court of Human Rights but the ECHR upheld the French burka ban.

The court ruled that the ban “was not expressly based on the religious connotation of clothing in question but solely on the fat that it concealed the face.Last year a You Gov poll found that 61% of Brits still want a ban on burkas. Should the Burka be banned in Britain? We asked Fathima,  Sowda and Sumeyah for their views on the news.


The burka is more of a cultural thing, it is not religious. I think banning the burka in Britain would be extreme. But I understand that if a person commits a crime you need to see their faces and if a woman is wearing a burka and commits a crime you can’t see her face.However, I still think banning British Muslim women from wearing the burka in Britain is extreme.”
Fathima, 12, Tower Hamlets

"I disagree with banning Muslim women from wearing the Burka because wearing a burka is a personal choice. Women should be able to wear what they want. You can’t tell someone to wear blue everyday if they don’t like it. Women should have the right to wear what they want."
Sowda, 14, Tower Hamlets

"Even as a Muslim I feel uncomfortable talking to a woman wearing a burkas but the burka is a more of a cultural thing than religious . There are people who want the Burka banned in Britain and I can see where people are coming from but I still think banning women from wearing it is a bit too extreme."
Sumeyah, 12 Tower Hamlets

#girlsviewsonthenews-Should The Burka Be Banned in Britain?

Last month the MailOnline reported that James Haymore, a father of three was fined £120 by his local council for taking his son to America to attend a memorial service for their great-grandfather during term-time.  Should parents be fined for taking their children on holiday during term-time? We asked Fathima and Tanya for their views on the news.

"It’s not fair that James has been fined £120 by his local council because a major thing happened in his family.  He has been fined for taking his kid to say goodbye to his grandpa. But parents who take their kids on holiday during term time for a normal holiday should be fined.Fatihma, 12, Tower Hamlets

"I think it’s disgusting that people who know how important education is are taking their children out of school during term time. There are children around the world who do not receive education and here in Britain children receive an education for free until 18. Parents who take their children on holiday during term time need to think about the bigger picture."
Tanya, 28, Tower Hamlets

Last month the BBC reported that young children who have committed minor crimes but have stopped breaking the law should have their  criminal record cleared when they turn 18. A  review, by a group of MPs and members of the House of Lords, heard a criminal record could harm education and employment prospects. Should crimes committed by young children be removed at 18? We asked Amber, Paige and Sumeyah for their views on the news.

"A child’s criminal record should be wiped clean when they turn 18. For example if they stole a pack of sweets as this is a minor but killing or attacking someone is a criminal offence and that should stay on a person’s record."
Amber 13, Tower Hamlets

"It depends on the crime but if they did the crime when they were only a young child this should be taken into consideration. Also some children are bullied and feel peer pressure to do things so there should be punishment but not a really bad one.
Paige, 13, Tower Hamlets

If a person commits rape or murder before their 18 this shouldn’t be removed when they turn 18. If a child commits a minor crime this should have consequences but should be wiped off because they are not an adult yet. 
Sumeyah, 12, Tower Hamlets

We love this quote because it’s a reminder that there are times in life that we need to be fierce and strong.  There are times when being strong is the only choice we have because being weak is not an option. Being weak leads to stress, pain and makes things worst. Always remember that we have strength,  we can handle our problems and we have power to endure the challenging times of our lives! Have a great weekend gorgeous girls xxxx

This week the Daily Mail Reported the horror story of  13-year-old Megan Billingsley whose eyebrows melted during a eyebrow tint. Poor Megan suffered an allergic reaction to the chemicals used to dye her eyebrow hair.  We’re aware that teenage girls get acrylic nails, weave, highlights but  is 13 too young for an eyebrow tint?We asked Paige and Tessa for their views on the news.

"13 is too young to be getting your eyebrows tinted. As much as I love make up and stuff, safety and parents permission comes before beauty. Personally I think that they should have checked her age before tinting her eye brows as she is way too young."                                                   Paige 13, Tower Hamlets

"I think there should be age limits on all beauty treatments that are carried out without parental consent. There are risks involved in beauty treatments and young people don’t always know about the risks. There are age limits for piercings and tattoos and I think the same should apply to beauty treatments like eyebrow tints that have similar risks."
Tessa, 23, Tower Hamlets

This week we were saddened to read in the Telegraph that a Church minister’s son David Headlam 18, was stabbed to death in Harlesden. We have a horrible knife crime problem in our country, is our government doing enough to tackle knife crime? We asked 13-year-old Amber from Tower Hamlets for her view on the news.

She said: “Children carry knives because they don’t feel safe, my youth club is a safe space and If I had a problem the youth workers here would help us. Too many young people have no one to talk to.The government is not doing a good enough job to tackle knife crime, children are carrying knives and that’s not okay. The government should create campaigns to make children feel safe, they should do more or I will.
