St Margaret’s Secondary School Principal: covering her ass over punishment of bald students?
I’m not in the least surprised by the disciplinary action taken by the principal of St Margaret Secondary School against her students for their bald-headed exposure in school after participating in a fund-raising event when they shaved their heads bald.
Her over the top reaction typifies the mindset of civil servants who slavishly adhere to the letter of the law, rules and regulations.
To forestall copycat behaviour, the principal could have highlighted their exemplary gesture, explaining why they’d be allowed to go bald but not the rest of the school population. I’m very certain the students would understand.
Looking at the issue broadly, students should be encouraged to undertake more adventurous tasks to test their endurance, will-power and courage. This will stand them in good stead in their adult lives.
Our students live sheltered lives. Instead of encouraging them to come out of their comfort zone, school principals tend to display little empathy and overreact.
With principals who are more interested in covering their ass, it’s little wonder then our students grow up with little sense of initiative, adventure and risk-taking.
