Stopping kids doing hand stands?
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.

I like the theme of the weblog. Is it free one or paid one? I too want the same theme for my weblog. I will book mark it.Construction Melbourne Saturday 15 September, 2012 - 3:17 PM
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.Greg O Friday 31 August, 2012 - 8:36 AM
