Anger over wandering 4yr old
The mother of a four year old child who wandered out from Poseidon kindergarten for over an hour is furious she wasn't phoned immediately. Michelle told Paul Murray she wants to thank the two men who raised the alarm about finding her son wandering around.
Here I was being all sanctimious about carer/teacher to child ratios and forgot about my own naughtiness when six years of age (around 1961/2) and not wanting to go back to class after lunch break,for whatever reason.
I think there were three or four of us and we hid under one of the buildings in the school yard for two hours.
Needless to say, after two bailed and "snitched", we were found and punished.
But, you know, I still call schools child detention centres, because a bored and scared child is not, necessarily, a bad or untelligent one.
What a craik.Dellas Thursday 9 August, 2012 - 11:14 PM
It could have happened to anyone at any school and the young boy was obviously educated enough on stranger danger to protect himself...doesn't that say something good for the school? An unfortunate incident but perhaps a reminder of what can happen if students don't follow school rules and procedure. We are in a culture of "blame the schools and teachers" but this is probably not always the most accurate direction to follow. A good outcome and if the school has already put procedures in place with the gates then the matter has been dealt with.Anon Sunday 5 August, 2012 - 11:21 AM
Well, then, here we are: overcrowded pre-schools and childcare centres.
This should not happen. No child, or group of children should be unattended.
Get with the program, people.
This is the "Boom" State.
My daughter has worked in childcare and has told me that over the last three years that the carer to child ratio has diminished to the point that she no longer wishes to work in the "industry" in this State.Dellas Friday 3 August, 2012 - 9:24 PM
Pretty scary at what could have happened here. Very poor form from the school. The mother should have been notified immediately and the fact that they didn't notice he was even missing is really bad . Glad to hear the ending was happy.Chick of Perth Thursday 2 August, 2012 - 12:59 PM
