A sad start to Term 4
Our school continues to be a strong supporter of White Ribbon where we support No Violence against women.
Wiley Park Public School has a policy of NO VIOLENCE of any kind and against anyone.
Therefore, I am saddened to report that on the first day of school our crossing supervisor who has faithfully managed the safety and care of our school community who use the Denman Ave crossing was assaulted by members of this community.
This is a shocking situation and one that cannot be tolerated. Staff come to work each day to work for the betterment of our students, community and the local area.
This situation can only bring negative beliefs about our school and community.
We need to stand against such behaviour and support one another. There is no place for angry outbursts either verbally or physically.
I am aware that the majority of our community are kind and good people. Many have expressed their disgust and shock that this assault has occurred. Crossing supervisors are not easy to find and now we are left with the prospect of losing this position due to the bad behaviour of a small group of people. The drivers who continually drive in an unsafe manner around our school and continually break road rules create daily dangerous situations.
We are all role models for our children. If they are surrounded by good manners and behaviour this is what they will learn. WE MUST ALL MODEL TO OUR CHILDREN APPROPRIATE SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR WHEREVER WE ARE AND EVERY DAY.
Campsie Police are investigating this incident and have asked for any witnesses of the assault to contact Detective Senior Constable Adrian Citaro on 9784 9647.
