Students get homework to plan their own funeral!

Parents were furious at the macabre task

Parents were furious after their 13-year-old children were told to plan their own funeral for their homework, including picking out flowers and a coffin.


The religious studies homework was given to Year Eight students St Paul’s Catholic School in Leicester during lockdown.

The pupils were given a form where they had to make choices for their funeral and give reasons why, including picking their favourite music or hymn and choosing flowers for a memorial.

Parents felt 13-year-olds were too young to be given this type of assignment, particularly during the coronavirus pandemic, when many families have had loved ones die.
