Bullying and arpatheid in SES schools

I've had reports of bullying being an issue on both the aussie schools. The latest news is that, in one of the schools, intergrade bullying is such a problem they have divided the (small) playground into 3 areas with rules about what grade child can play in what area. How ridiculous. Does trying to ...

I've never tried it but I think it's pretty easy to append things on.

well I only learnt the meaning (current) of the word "egregious" from watching League of Gentlemen.

Hmmm - Do you think the Dentons were SES? *g*

Sprouting Shakespeare would probably look more revolting than impressive, especially if it was an "Alien"-type scenario.


Hmm, still preferable to brussel sprouts! :?

hmm, where do I say they don't fudge their figures? I thought we were trying to find evidence that JC is behind other schools? Yup - and we're not going to find that in the school's own prospectus are we? b-tongue You might care to dismiss anecdotal evidence, but MM and Temp Dupe had remarkably simi...

I have been doing some researching re BST exams. Seems private sector schools don't have the accountability for these as state schools do. For instance, it is a simple matter of only letting the top cohort in a year level sit the test which would help fudge the figures. State schools are not allowed...

Sly - what they teach boys vee girls does seem to differ - tho probably in that it is couched in differing terms. In the adult courses classes are segregated after a certain level. Keep in mind that the SES keep their belief system quite secret - but according to some ex-senior members who used to p...

Thanks for the unexpected well wishes actually, my bad, I thought you had removed your son. That being said, I certainly DO wish him well in his new school. OC classes, as far as I know, are only 5-6th grade; my son is only in 1st grade. That is true, and the classes are filled from kids from schoo...
