detention

“What is the purpose, what is the benefit to everyone involved and how does that shift the behaviour?”
-PV Executive Officer Gail McHardy

 In the media

A recent article in the Herald-Sun raised the issue of Saturday detention at Victorian Schools.

We can’t link to the article because it’s behind a pay-wall, but it covers a number of Melbourne government schools that list Saturday detention in their student handbooks. The article contained comments from a number of school Principals, including Victorian Association of State Secondary Principals president Sue Bell, who said, “It’s a last-ditch effort, really.” Ms Bell said when she was principal at Wantirna College, students who tagged school buildings in graffiti were required to come to the campus on a weekend and repair the damage. She said the exercise offered an opportunity to talk to the student about what was going on. “And it was a nice way for them to give back,” she said.

"More than 27 million free pads and tampons will be given to Victorian state school girls every year under a new state government initiative".

Parents Victoria was consulted re the initiative
