Stopping kids doing hand stands?

Posted by: 2UE | 28 August, 2012 - 8:48 AM
Should the national anthem be sung at school assemblies?

Parents at a Sydney school say they will fight a ban which stops their children from doing handstands and cartwheels in the playground.

The mums and dads at Drummoyne Public School have started a petition, after the school ruled students could only perform the activities under the supervision of a trained gymnastics teacher.

The Education Department's Phil Lambert has told Jason Morrison the principal has made the decision because most of the playground is concrete.

Shona Phillips is among the angry parents and tells Jason Morrison this type of play is part of growing up.

  • The mums and dads at that school, and all the others, are the real cause of the problem, not the schools. There is a whole army of them out there just praying for the day when their kids get injured at school so they can sue someone. We never had these problems when I went to school but we also did not have all of today's litigation laws and endleess numbers of law firms advertising no win no fee services.

  • Phil says they are great sporting achievers - won't be for long with those stupid rules because everyone too scared to do anything or they will get into trouble.
