Hawker College students (possibly Canberra High) “rampage” through Daramalan?

By johnboy - 27 March 2009 46

I’m hearing that a group of Hawker College (possibly Canberra High) students chose to pay a disruptive visit to Daramalan yesterday.

Anyone got more on this?

Here’s what I have so far:

    Supposedly a large group of hawker college students ran thru dara yesterday dressed in caps and white face/smog masks Armed with bats etc, went on a bit of a rampage and then beat up the kid they were looking for plus a teacher who tried to stop it.

    5 paddy wagons turned up and caught some Others just took off their masks and caps and caught the bus away

What’s Your opinion?

I just hope they got on the school bus, and didn’t take up seats on the regular service…

Sorry, caf.

I should say OT that this sort of sh-t has been going on in our public schools for quite some time. I’ve witnessed a few incidents of groups attacking individuals over slights away from the school. Two people have an argument, threaten to call their cousins, and their cousin’s cousins, who turn out to be cousins with their opponent’s cousins and everyone just stands around waiting for blood while they work out who’s after who. Then they all go home and it’s like going to a movie where the reel broke.

It really is just childish stuff. Have an onsite security guard to deal with intruders to the school and you’d probably have the problem solved.

Well, this thread sure jumped the shark quickly.

What do Sydney airport police have to do with ACT police, you clown?

They’re patrolled by the AFP, you clown.

How is that possible when allegedly there are no Police at the airport?

I didn’t think Hawker College students could make it any further than the underpass before passing out or getting lost in a session. It must have changed since I went there.

A friend’s son at Dara says there were a mob of kids from Canberra High who were searching for one of the year 9 boys with whom they had had an altercation at the bus centre, when they had threatened him “they would come to get him”. Well they did come during the storm and power outage (!) and a melee ensued. Some say they were armed, but that may just be the drama of the moment. They didn’t find the target boy who was whisked away to a safe place by some of his friends. Apparently this rivalry has been going on for some time. It’s a worry…

It was just a couple of trainee bikers sorting out a young lad. They hit him at school because they learnt a lesson last week about people keeping guns in the home. At least they knew he wouldn’t be packing at school!

Maybe they watched too many Mel Gibson films and went looking for jesus.

Probably some sort of “bizzare love triangle”

Whoah? I wonder what it was over.

Apparently a number of teachers surrounded the trouble makers but were forced to back off when knives were produced (fair enough). The school was put in “lock down” as soon as the trouble started & from the reports I heard, they handled the situation quite well considering. I’m glad the cops got a few of the idiots, I’m sure that will lead them to the rest.

What a bunch of heroes. How many with bats, to beat up one person? Good on the teacher who tried to stop them, but where were the others?
