P&C defends school bullying response
THE BIGGENDEN State School P&C executive has come to the defence of the school.
Robbie Radel said comments made by parents in this newspaper (November 15) were not a fair representation of the opinions within the entire school community.
A school parent, Mr Radel said he was disappointed the reputation of Biggenden State School and its staff was under fire.
“The overwhelming majority of parents are very happy with the school and the job the principal has done in reducing and preventing negative behaviour,” Mr Radel said.

Mr Radel said the P&C had been aware of the bullying allegations made by some students and parents, and had an active representative on the behaviour management committee.
“The P&C fully supports the actions being taken by Biggenden State School to minimise bullying and unacceptable behaviour,” he said.
“Biggenden State School does have a responsible behaviour plan in place.
“And before its implementation three years ago, all parents, staff and members of the P&C were asked to participate in its preparation to ensure that all were happy with it.
“No feedback was offered by any parents outside the P&C.”
