Kids banned from birthday tradition at school
It’s my party, and I can cry if I want. But I can’t blow out my candles and make a wish.
That’s right. Children in Australia can no longer blow out the candles on birthday cakes at school because it spreads too many germs, according to the country’s National Health and Medical Research Council.
“We introduced new national standards to lift the quality of child care across Australia because we believe parents deserve peace of mind when they drop their child off they are receiving quality care to a high standard," Australia's Minister for Early Childhood and Child Care, Kate Elliss, explained in a statement.
"All services across the country will be assessed and rated against new National Quality Standard which will ensure that services are meeting basic requirements including children's health, safety and well-being."
