Lockdown at Gold Creek school

By Jazz - 30 March 2010 31

Seems there was a bit of excitement out at Gold Creek school today with some reports of golf club wielding current and former students taking out their angst on the Schools windows. The School was apparently put in lockdown mode for some time, which is a proposition that i hadn’t realised that schools had in place til now.

To look on the bright side, it was golf clubs and not firearms involved. If you have more info, add it in the comments

ACT schools have a colour coded response system to deal with a range of emergency situations. I got a look at the guide book at a high school when it was left in the front office. I don’t remember which colour was for what but they had a separate plan for fire, bomb threat, firearms incident, natural disaster (storms, earthquake & flood) and other violent incidents.

Yes but how many 5yr olds could you take on at one time?

jasere – I think I could probably overpower them, but they were school aged children doing the damage – I don’t think I could guarantee that the kids wouldn’t get hurt while I was disarming them. I think that I wouldn’t be able to deal with the possible legal issues afterwards for the cost of replacing a window.

ah but if you touched the kids while disarming them Jasere you would be charged immediately with a half dozen offences and the feral parents would be paid thousands by 2nd rate tabloid TV programmes to whinge and moan about how their priceless darlings were just misunderstood and it wasn’t their fault.

Tasers for Teachers

Maybe it could be funded under the Building the Education Revolution. After all, it seems to funds pretty much everything else.

+ 1 benett’s “Tasers for Teachers” Program has a nice ring to it 😀

I agree they implemented a policy well. Would be one of the few good things they’ve ever done. My dealings with Gold Creek have been less than satisfactory.

Put the kids in nuke-proof bunker. Ensure the bunker has no Internet or mobile-phone capability – wouldn’t want them
searching for child porn whilst in the bunker. Should be safe, that is, unless the teacher that is in there with them is a psychopathic, murderous, peddo-communist in disguise. I say we shouldn’t know anything about what happened. And really, teachers (who aren’t commy peddo’s) should be armed with tasers.

These Golf-club wielding maniacs were probably outraged due to the fact that their prospect of getting a beer after 3pm in NSW is being questioned. Though I doubt that.

Hang on…what???

Why do you say that grumpy? It would appear that despite its other perceived failings they’ve managed to implement a rarely used policy quite well.

If she said anything that wasn’t negative, then she can’t have the name of grumpyrhonda now can she?

So glad my kids are not in that school any more.

Me too. I have no beef about their lockdown proceedures, it was their total inability to teach an above average child or another child that didn’t want to be there. Hopeless and quite frankly a bit of a joke.

The biggest mistake i made since coming to canberra was to think that new equated to good school.

I finished there myself at the end of 2007 and while yes there were some little turds in the years below and a few in my year, there were some real doozies in terms of burnouts in the years above me. But we never had a lockdown though…..

The kids coped well, the school put its procedures in place, informed parents, and asked for the situation not to be gossiped about so that the police have a chance to investigate it thoroughly. As a parent of a child attending the school, I am happy with how it was handled. I suggest, though, that if you want more information, that you contact the school or the department of education, and leave the police to do their jobs, and the teachers and students to deal with what happened.
