Petition to Scrap Safe School Program
Friday 16th September 2016
A future Liberal-Nationals Government will remove Daniel Andrews and Roz Ward’s much maligned Safe Schools program and replace it with an initiative that sends a strong message of mutual respect and anti-bullying
Leader of The Nationals and Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh said he firmly believes that Victorian schools should have a zero-tolerance approach to bullying of anyone over things like race, gender, religion, sexuality or appearance.
“It is important that our schools foster respect and tolerance in our children but Daniel Andrews and Roz Ward’s Safe Schools program is not at all about making schools safer for students.
“It is all about pushing one person’s radical ideology onto other people’s children,” Mr Walsh said.
A petition has been launched to give parents an avenue to express their concerns about the Safe School program which is being forced upon their children by the Andrews Labor Government.
“Many parents in my electorate are heartily sick of their views being ignored by Daniel Andrews when it comes to important issues such as the education of their children,” Mr Walsh said.
Copies of the petition can be accessed by phoning the Murray Plains electorate office on 54 822039 or emailing email@example.com
“I encourage all concerned parents to sign the petition and send a message to Daniel Andrews that the views of parents count.”
