I just want to revisit a post from July 2009 in regards to the bullying at Kingsford Smith School.
I don’t have children – but I have nieces and cousins and friends with kids who go there and all I ever hear about is how bad the bullying is.
My twin nieces are quite often too scared to even go to school, one incident she was pushed down a flight of stairs and suffered a concussion. My neighbour recently pulled her sons out of the school (and is home schooling them) after one had his nose broken in class. And only yesterday I heard that my cousin was beat up (his very first day at the school) because he was half the size of the rest of his yr 7 boys.
The school doesn’t seem to care, and I am looking at going over the school’s head to the Education Minister. I’m looking to hear from parents who have children attending this school and if they have any problems in relation to bullying.
I am sick of listening to my nieces crying their eyes out after school most days and telling me what has happened and need to take action. Suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated.
