Hora Hora Primary School principal Pat Newman says calling police or exclusion of volatile pupils only option for Northland schools
I agree. That’s the safest option as it could just end up in a situation where it’s the teacher’s word against a student and that mightn’t end well unfortunately. How does the teacher prove they had the student’s best interests at heart? It’s a tough one.
It’s going to take radical and ridiculous action. When police become so busy and parents are missing days off work, maybe everyone will get over their stupidity. In some schools they nearly need an officer on site all the time.
Could end bad, retaliatory against school . . . vandalism or worse.
Exclude them then what? Not helping the overall problem. I understand schools can’t deal with it, just so sad youth are wasting their lives away.
need more principals to start taking this action send them home for the parents to deal with notification to Oranga Tamariki
At my kid’s school our principal puts the kids in her car and takes them home. ‘We’re gutted’: Jono and Ben gets the axe after seven years
They were good, until they went to the Edge. Everything changed about them.
Well I, for one, am not so ‘gutted’.
The skits with the Gloriavale girl, the focus group and Angela just needed to stop, and they needed to go back to Fridays. Army is the show that really needs to go! Love these guys, but was never as good as Jonoand BenatTen was. They had more freedom then. Was hilarious and unscripted. Stopped watching when it moved to ‘family’ viewing times.
A real shame. They have had some great moments. Media works does have to take some accountability, why change the format, day and time if it works? End of the week was so much better.
I watched them every Friday night last year with my dad but when they changed it to Thursday it became inconvenient and when it aired I wasn’t with him. Love the show, gonna miss it!
Should always have stayed at 10. Should have stayed JonoandBenatTen it was so much better.
Was better on Friday night at 10. Content went down hill once time slot changed.
The boys were way more watchable than The Bachelor, MarriedatFirstSight etc.
