A Queensland father has shared a shocking video of a brutal schoolyard brawl his daughter was involved in, saying while he was proud of her for standing her ground, the school should be ashamed of what goes on.
Mr Blume said he was furious that his daughter was fighting older girls.
“The girl(s) attacked my daughter yet again so (his daughter) started fighting back. The schools do f**k all,” he said.
“There is a certain place that these videos are posted too, which I will not disclose. It’s almost as if kids are picking fights just to make it on the ‘special’ page.”
He said the school, Calamvale Community College, on Brisbane’s southside, “should be ashamed” and he was proud his daughter had “stood her ground” but wanted the issue taken up with authorities before “yet another parent is forced to take matters into their own hands”.
“This has been going on for months; if it’s not a certain few kids causing the issue, it’s their mates because the culprits were suspended and this is the repercussions for doing it by the school rules. At least (his daughter) stood her ground. Good on her, but she shouldn’t have to.
“I’m happy to go and sort out the parents. See how they like it, three on one.”
The school’s principal Lisa Starmer said the fight is being investigated and action will be taken once the facts are known.
Ms Starmer told The Courier-Mail the video does not reflect the school’s values and will be taken seriously.
“Any situation that threatens the safety and wellbeing of students, staff or others in our school community is treated extremely seriously, and dealt with as a matter of priority,” she said in a statement.
“The video that is being shared within our community and on social media does not reflect the strong values that are the hallmark of Calamvale Community College.
“The vast majority of our students exemplify positive behaviour and are focused on their learning and a healthy respect for each other.
“The safety and welfare of our students continues to be my highest priority at all times. Guidance officers and other support is available to students who require it.”
A Department of Education spokesperson said the department is aware of the video and the school does not tolerate violence or anti-social behaviour.
“The students in these videos will be dealt with in line with the school’s Responsible
Behaviour Plan and the Student Code of Conduct, respectively,” the spokesperson said.
“Calamvale Community College has implemented a range of programs and initiatives across
all year levels in conjunction the Positive Education philosophy including a comprehensive
wellbeing program that explicitly teaches students expected behaviours such as anti-
“Students and caregivers with ongoing concerns regarding bullying or misconduct are
strongly encouraged discuss these matters further with their school principal or their closest
Department of Education regional office.”
