Good Luck.
A high school in London has students from all forms of physical with each other. The Quest Academy has warned students not to hug, hands, or give high-fives. The school was briefly the of attention a week ago when US President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron visited it. The two leaders perhaps the school rules with their back-slapping and high-fives a game of table tennis with students. The idea the banning is to help bullying, according to school principal Andy Croft. He said: "Physical contact between students is not allowed at the academy because it is often associated poor behaviour or bullying and can to fighting."

Students and parents are up in at the new rules. Student Dayna Chong, 15, received for cuddling her female friend. She said: "They're trying to us into robots." Her mother called the “extreme” and “ludicrous”. She said: "If the kids can't even hug each other at school some of them will never learn how to be interactive.” She added: “School is to be where we start teaching our children how to be social - shaking hands, hugging, up. You need an embrace to you when things go wrong. I've never heard of anything so in my life." Mr Croft disagreed, saying his policy, “creates a disciplined environment which is for learning and respect”.
