Agreement reached on raw food boy's schooling
Friday 28 December 2012
Social services and the mother of a 15-year-old boy who only eats fruit, vegetables and nuts have reached agreement on the boy’s schooling.
Youth social workers had wanted to remove Tom Watkins from his home because he does not attend school. His mother said he was teased because of his diet.
Following the involvement of the child ombudsman, his mother has now agreed Tom will fall under the supervision of the Wereldschool and the Geert Groote College in Amsterdam.
Raw food boy must go to school, say social workers
