Boy, 13, Is Sent Home From School For Selling Squirts Of Hand Sanitiser For 50p A Time

He sent home after being accused of breaching rules!

A teenage ‘Del Boy’ who capitalized on the outbreak of coronavirus by charging fellow pupils 50p a time to use hand sanitizer is suspended for one day from school.

Oliver Cooper, 13, picked up from a Tesco supermarket in Leeds a £ 1.60 tub of Johnson’s child hand wash as he was waiting for the school bus. Charging people to use the cleaning product, Oliver won himself a swift £9, but soon fell foul of staff who sent him back home for a day.

Oliver, who attends Dixon’s Unity Academy, is now facing a day of solitary confinement, followed by a two-hour suspension after the suspected violation of school laws. His parents are in arms over his a-day exclusion, and the enterprising Oliver, who spent his cash on Doritos and a kebab, was praised.

‘Everything I can hear is the radio. They went on about the coronavirus and how necessary it is to sanitize your hands and wash your hands. I bought a hand washtub from Tesco before the bus came, and offered it to my friends. They gave me the impression I should be charging people for it, so I did.’ Oliver explained.

He continued: ‘Other students in school sell stuff, including chewing gum and if somebody wants something they certainly will pay for it. Indeed, a lot of people wanted this badly. It’s ridiculous really!’

Andrew Tompkins, the stepfather of Oliver, rang him to, however, say he was a f***ing. Star. On the other hand, his mother, Jenny Tompkins, said she was trying to scold her ‘ little Del Boy ‘ before turning on Facebook to slam the decision of the school.

‘I don’t think this is an egregious crime. I told him off so I can tell his head of the year, when we go to school, that I told him it was wrong. I think they see it as him trying to exploit a situation. His stepdad called him a legend halfway, but told him off so to put a stop to it.’ Jenny explained.
