SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN counselled to impose more stringent rules regarding suspended students.
This request has come from the heads of the teachers’ unions as well as a concerned parent who were all responding to the incident at Parkinson Memorialon Wednesday when a 15-year old suspended student returned to the school ahead of the stipulated time. It is alleged that the student later broke a window in a teacher’s car.
The parent who requested anonymity said her son, who attended Parkinson, had been bullied by older students on more than one occasion. In at least one of the incidents she said her son was beaten by two boys in a PSV terminal.
After reporting the matter to the principal Ian Holder, she said she was told that the culprit was suspended. But the taunting did not stop.
