Schoolgirl punished for trying to summon a ghost

The summoning of the ghost of “Bloody Mary” has been the most popular dare in the school. Was it harsh to punish her for it?

An 8 year old girl, who’s identity has been protected, had to write an apology letter after she was caught in the bathroom performing the summoning. 

The ‘dare’ involves standing in front of a mirror and saying “bloody Mary” 5 times, then if the legend is correct she appears!! 

But let’s be sensible here she’s not going to appear, nothing will happen, it’s a massive over reaction by the school. An over reaction that has prompted the local town to ridicule the school.
