Pierc­ing pol­icy angers par­ent

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

I am a mother of five chil­dren, each one of them have to abide the school rules. My old­est child has scars from a dog at­tack many years ago, but I didn’t go out and get tat­toos over them, just to hide them. I’m sorry to hear about your health is­sues, but there are so many other chil­dren with worst scars, but they hold their heads up proud, and still abide by rules. Rules are rules for a rea­son, to teach these chil­dren re­spect to them­selves and so­ci­ety. Posted by: Mum of 5 of Tvl I have no prob­lem with the school en­forc­ing its rules but I think that teach­ers should also con­form on rules such as this, if they are to have any ef­fect, that is. Af­ter all, it is legal for adults to drink and smoke but they are not al­lowed to do this at school. I think a com­pro­mise is pos­si­ble don’t you Mr Prin­ci­pal? The girl has been through enough by the sound of things. Posted by: Jenny Stir­ling The stu­dent needs to con­form to school pol­icy. End of story. The prin­ci­pal is do­ing a fine job and does not need this sort of rub­bish wast­ing his time. Posted by: John Lowry of Townsville
