Today we have discussed treating other students with respect. It has come to my attention that some students are using racist comments and put down comments in the playground, library and various other parts of the school. This is totally unacceptable.
Here is what you can do at the time.
If you are on the receiving end say:
“That is a ( racist/ put down comment). Stop it”
If you over hear someone make a racist or put down comment say
” I heard that, that is a (racist/put down comment) Stop it.” Also stand near/beside person who was put down.
Report to the teacher.
The teacher will write a letter to the offending student’s parents explaining the use of unacceptable language. The exact words the student used will be written in the letter.
The student will write a letter of apology to the student, apologising for the exact words spoken. They will also give 3 to 4 sincere statements about the good points of the student they offended.
The offending student will also be banned for some considerable time from the area where the offense took place. A repeat of an offence will escalate to Principal level.
Racist comments and put down/foul language comments are offensive. There are no excuses. Whinging will not help your case.
