50 Scottish pupils given detention for skipping Mass
AROUND 50 pupils who failed to attend Mass at a Catholic school near Motherwell have been handed detentions.
North Lanarkshire Council has said the punishments, given out to Taylor High School pupils who left school instead of attending the September 30 service, are for truancy.
The annual Patron’s Day Mass at the New Stevenston school was attended by the Bishop of Motherwell, Joseph Toal, and was a memorial service for two teachers who died earlier in the year. It is believed a letter was sent to parents informing them that all pupils were expected to be there.
