An 11- year-old girl accused her school of “war crimes” under the Geneva Conventions of 1949 in a hilarious response to a teacher feedback form.

Ava Bell, from Glasgow, took issue with her teacher’s use of “collective punishment,” which is when a group is punished for one person’s actions. The form asked students to provide ways in which her teacher could do better, so Bell wrote: “Not use collective punishment as it is not fair on the many people who did nothing and under the 1949 Genva Conventions it is a war crime.”

The Geneva Conventions are a set of humanitarian rules and treaties that apply in times of armed conflict. “No protected person may be punished for an offense he or she has not personally committed,” according to Article 33 of the rules.

“My daughter actually submitted this feedback at school. Not sure if I should ground her or buy her ice cream,” Mason Cross, Ava’s father, shared a picture of her answer on Twitter.


“I thought it was really funny and absolutely typical of Ava, who I haven’t managed to best in an argument since she turned six,” Mason told the Daily Mail.

“I should clarify that she thinks her teacher is awesome,” he added, and “according to Ava, her teacher thought it was quite amusing!”

Cross later tweeted a picture of his daughter holding two cones of ice-cream, with the words, “The people have spoken”.
