At 9:30 am at St. Justin’s Catholic primary school, a nun walks in claiming to hold a letter from the Prime Minister’s office. The letter she said, stated the following…
Their parents weren’t looking after them well enough, and they would be taken away…
When the students heard this, at first they didn’t believe her, but when some of the students tried to confirm it was a joke, the teacher insisted it was real and kept on with the exercise. Following this several of the students started crying, as any child would after receiving such news at the age of 10.
The point of this? Apparently the exercise was conducted in order to create empathy for the “stolen generation.” Apparently these little 10 year olds should be made to feel guilty about the acts of those decades before them, and therefore deserve to be emotionally abused to the point of of forced empathy.
In fact, it wasn’t until 2:50 pm that the students were told the scenario was not true…Natalie Wykes, a parent of one of the students who was involved in this exercise describe her sons reaction of one of terror and anxiety. Claiming her son actually started “thinking of ways to escape before the end of the school day.”
Tim Gilmour, assistant to the director of schools in the Catholic diocese of Wollongong defended the activity, saying “This was intended to give students experience of a scenario that was part of our nations history.” Thanks Tim. Let us know when you conduct the lessons on the death penalty, after al a part of our nations history…this is no excuse and the exercise was done in poor form. What’s most distressing about this is that the curriculum allows for such activities to take place, despite the protest of parents? In the US such activities have also caused a stir, in their case the exercises related to slavery, the schools were forced to apologise and rightly so…
Mary Jane Turner, another parent of a child who was part of the activity said her child already suffered from anxiety, and came home “very distressed and crying, we had to keep telling him you’re home now, we wouldn’t let something like that happen.”
However, despite uproar, the controversial lesson on the Stolen Generation where students are duped into thinking they’ll be taken away from their parents won’t be stopped, the NSW Catholic Diocese spokesman says.
How incredibly Marxist of you, it’s only fair that this be compared to the Safe Schools Program which to took on the point of view that the state knows what’s best for our children to learn, and that parents really have no place in disagreeing. We have to stand up to this unconditional trust of our government and stripping of our rights to question and disagree with what our children learn.
This needs to stop, children as young as nine do not need to be feeling the anxiety of a child being taken away from their family in the name of creating empathy, teach them about it, discuss what happened, condemn what happened but DO NOT repeat what happened.
It won’t surprise me if next week the students are locked in a gas chamber for 24 hours in order to create empathy for victims of the holocaust, here’s an idea if you really want to scare the kids, put a Trump hat on their heads and send them to Newtown.
