Girl, 3, Wanders Away From Nursery To Avoid Eating Pork Chops
My goodness I am absolutely shocked!
Thank God someone decent grabbed her and not a pedophile.
I don't blame the parents for being furious at the school, but I hope they start teaching the daughter at home how unsafe and dangerous her actions were. I started in on my kids at age two about pedophiles and never opening doors and wandering away.
When faced with pork chops for her school dinner, three-year-old Leonie Terry was not a happy pupil.
But instead of simply asking for something different, Leonie decided to take herself home for lunch almost half a mile away.
She wandered out of the school gates and down the street towards her house before crossing four roads on her own.
Leonie had walked around a quarter of a mile and was heading towards a busy dual carriageway when luckily a passer-by spotted her and escorted safely back to school.
Now a major inquiry is under way to establish how a young child was permitted to walk out of a busy school at lunchtime.
The youngster was spotted crossing a road by Gemma Bailey, 24, manager of a nearby estate agent.
She said: "I saw this little girl run past in school uniform and then across a road on her own so I ran after her and brought her back to the shop.
"She didn't have a coat or bag with her. When we phoned the school they said they didn't even know she was missing."
Leonie's expedition for her lunch had taken the daring youngster almost a quarter of a mile from her primary school. She is believed to have been missing from Aspinal primary school in Gorton, Greater Manchester for at least 20 minutes.

OMG, this story could have had a terrible outcome. I know the parents must be furious with the school because gates were left open. Where in heavens name was this child's teacher? Why the school didn't even know she was missing! She is just adorable in her picture. How fortunate for this little girl and her parents that it wasn't some evil person who found her.

Just like a 3-year-old! Glad this story had a happy ending.
