Erindale the new home of voyeuristic violence in the ACT?

By el 26 May 2007 21

Following on from this article earlier in the year I noticed a rather depressing story on the Canberra Times website.

Particularly disturbing was the following:

“In both cases other students filmed the bashings and distributed the footage around the school, including posting one of the assaults on the YouTube website.”

We can only hope the footage is of a high enough quality to be used as evidence.

And to give some idea of the limits that teachers and principals have to deal with:

“Erindale College principal Michael Hall said one of the attackers involved had left the college to take up a place at another school, and he had imposed the maximum penalty available to him on the other student, giving her five days’ suspension.”

Five days holiday for a violent assault.

(First person to suggest bringing back the cane gets 10 bonus points..)

Sorry Terry Wrist. The Mackillop students were the perpetrators, but the problem was with Lanyon??? Maybe the Mackillop headmaster could have done something to stop 100 of their students or were they too busy defending their bosses from assorted other allegations that crop up from time to time in the private school system?

I see a lot of Erindale students – some seem good, some not good. Some loud, some quiet, some polite, some obnoxious. They are certainly no worse than dealing with some of the Marist crowd in Woden.
