Bashed teacher says school is still failing kids

A former teacher who was brutally bashed at a school in Perth’s south that is notorious for violence has spoken out about her ordeal because of her concerns the school is still letting down vulnerable teenagers.

The teacher, who was kicked and punched so hard by a student that she was taken to hospital, has written to Education Minister Sue Ellery asking why public schools are still referring students to the non-government SMYL Community College after a string of violent incidents.

A police report on the teacher’s assault says a female student grabbed her by the hair and forced her to the ground after smashing through a closed glass-panelled door to get into her office.

“While the victim was on the floor, the accused continued with a barrage of punches and kicks to the victim’s head,” the police report said. “The attack only stopped when three staff members intervened by standing over the victim, with one dragging the accused away.”
