2/9/2016 Visit to Harrisville State School
Last Friday the ICANIWILL team visited Harrisville State School, a primary school located roughly an hour and a half from Brisbane. Kick-starting the day at 6am, coffee in hand and radio up high, Conan, Nick and I made it to school just in time for morning tea.
A quaint school, we were greeted by the principal Christine who described to us the troubles she was experiencing with the students which comprised mainly of a lack of cooperation, exclusion and a ‘ganging up’ mentality on those who were deemed low in social status. No doubt a problem in all schools, this particular strand of bullying, though quite common, is exceedingly troublesome in smaller schools as the atmosphere is one that is more intimate.
