Quality childcare in a
welcoming & supportive environment

Smoking now allowed in schools?

By Thumper 4 November 2007 61

Sadly I can find nothing online about this. However, various radio stations are reporting that a girl at Stromlo High is allowed to smoke during school hours as she needs to do so to get through the stress of it all.

Apparently the school has given her the go ahead, and it is thought that she has a doctors certificate allowing her to do so.

Andrew Barr has declined to comment, saying that it is a departmental issue.

Interesting stuff from a government that paints smokers as the antichrist. And a typical Stanhope government piece of hypocrisy.

[The Age has now picked up the story here with the NSW Health Minister putting in her 2 cents worth. The Daily Terror, the Herald Sun and (including Sky news video footage) are all also carrying the ‘story’. I’m sure it’ll be on TT or ACA in days if it hasn’t been already – ed]

Nope, I actually agree with smoking restrictions, and I’m a smoker.

Whereas, you’re obviously just a sanctimonious tool.


I am a smoker, and I don’t smoke in the car, in the house, I move away from others, and i remember the 6 of the best I got on both hands for smoking at school. I just made sure i held out till after school.
