I'm a public schooler.Private schools are just scary.
Well, I think Public Schools are scary...
Well, I think Tamara Girls High School in NSW, Australia is scary. I read an article a while back about it, and it freaked me out.Note
: You don't have to read it.
[spoiler]This story contains references to gang rape, so I've put it under spoiler tags.[/spoiler]
Alright here goes...
[spoiler] Tamara Girls High School
was one of the richest most prestigeous highschools in Australia. On one school camp, a 15-year-old student attending the school was gang raped by her boyfriend and his buddies. She then told the supervising teacher of the camp, and they told her to keep quiet about it. She didn't listen, and rang her parents, telling them to come pick her up. When they got there, however, the teachers told them the "truth": She had consented to sex with her boyfriend, and so her parents wouldn't be ashamed, she made up a story of rape. Her parents believed the teachers, and went home angry at their daughter's "lying".
A few weeks later, everyone knew of the girl's attempt to cover up doing it with her boyfreind, and she had to leave the school the harrassment was so bad. And then the turning point occured. One of the guys who had raped her confessed to the police. Her parents soon found out the real "truth" as well. Needless to say her parents were P*SSED. They sued the school, and turned it into a HUGE scandal, and that school is now very less popular.
Sure...public school people maybe "scary" But Private Schools aren't that great either. [/spoiler]
I attend a public high school! I love my school. People are nice there, not violent and crazy, like some people believe. Also, to the person who basically said "people from private schools are smarter and more successful than people from public schools" my school got the 3rd highest HSC score in the state of NSW. That beat all
of the private schools. The two above us were Selective Schools (schools for super-smart ppl) What does this prove? People from private schools are NOT NECESSARILY smarter than ppl from public schools.
That's seriously scary...
Well have you heard about St. Scholastica's college, in Glebe? Well, my friend's frined *which is now my friend* told me that there's some Yr. 12s that are bullying Yr. 7s there, and I thought my school is so cool! I'm in year 8 right now... O.o
Anyway, whereabouts is yer school? I haven't been in other places, just in the City, Chatswood, Flemington and yeh...
I was thinking of going to anothe school with boys, but your story just scares me...
Now I have doubts on going to a different school... T-T
Have to agree with you, people going to private schools are not always smarter, just luckier, it still depends on the person if he/she studies well, or slacks alot, and bludge alot... *I do that!*
