Gangs of armed men terrorise Calwell High

By KevinPepper - 26 February 2008 32

Canberra Times is reporting more trouble at Calwell High:

Violence Erupts at Calwell

Gangs of armed young men terrorising the school… Kids being beaten up walking home.. strangers coming into the school to cause trouble and start fights. Cars full of baseball bat weilding thugs circling the school.
WTF is going on at Calwell High and why can’t anything be done? Are things really as bad as reported or is it just a media beat up? The place is starting to sound like Western Sydney. Surely it can’t be that bad. What’s next, the Calwell Heights riots ala Macquarie Fields riots style?

[ED: ABC Online is also covering this with Andrew Barr saying that Calwell is safe.]

What’s Your opinion?

La mente – as somebody thats in the industry, I have a general expectation that Nyssa would know a little bit about it.

Mike, it’s because saying it happened at a school sells.

BerraBoy, it’s always the brown nosers who do stupid things who are promoted.

Those who do their job well are treated as scum and usually are forced out of teaching by poor decisions and incompetant leadership.

I wnet out with a teacher from Calwell High for a few years. She had no issue giving glsses of champagne to girls in her year 7 and 8 netball team. This despite me hearing one parent ask if there was going to be alcohol at this end of season party, I asked her what the hell she thought she was doing and her response was “well they’re not going to tell their parents are they”. I ended up dumping her after finding out she was screwing her boss, also a teacher. She’s now a headmistress in the ACT system. And they wonder why Calwell High is in trouble. Go figure…

I am a nightmare walking
Psychopath talking
If you come from Calwell it’s you I’ll be stalking
Come to ya school
Make ya look like a fool
When I empty the clip from my automatic tool

Why is it that Calwell High gets slagged off?
From what I have read of the alleged assaults , it wasnt Calwell High students doing it. It was randoms and it just happened at the school.

Its like saying that someone that got mugged on the street is thug because a thug mugged him..

There was a riot by some Year 10 students a couple of years back. Couple of kids set a bin alight, others were trashing a couple of rooms, throwing chairs and some windows were broken. The teachers were told over the PA to lock the doors to rooms to keep the Year 10s out. For those in the school community, who know staff (in my case) or know people who go there, the place has a definate reputation.

Straight outta Calwell, crazy motherfracker named Ice Cube
From the gang called Boganz With Attitudes
When I’m called off, I got a sawed off
Squeeze the trigger, and bodies are hauled off

I’m buggered as to why this is being treated as an ‘education issue’. It is a Police issue. Who is better equiped to handle this situation? The Education minister or the Police Minis…..ahhh forget it.

Poor bloody kids.

Swaggie 10:00 am 26 Feb 08

It’s okay, the cops sent a police car to drive round a few times. There’s a picture in today’s Times. Problem solved…where would we be without Mr Barr?

Skidbladnir 9:53 am 26 Feb 08

But Barr also said there was no plan to shut down schools.
