Rockingham brawl: School responds after students ‘fight tradesmen’ in Perth | #students | #parents | #parenting | #parenting | #kids


A Perth school head has responded after an alarming video emerged of their students allegedly involved in an altercation with some tradesmen.

The tradies were allegedly bashed by students on Tuesday at SMYL Community College in Rockingham in a wild rampage that was streamed on social media.

The brutal attack, which can be seen in the clip above, left staff and innocent students in tears and hiding under their desks.

The tradesmen, a father, and son, were there to fix a faulty fire hydrant and also assess property damage when an argument ensued.

The head of the school has now spoken out, telling The West Australian that the children are highly traumatised “broken babies”.

College director Sam Gowegati did call the brawl “appalling” but also tried to give some explanation for their actions.

“The reason these kids are sent here is because they’re disengaged from mainstream education,” he said.

“These kids are already vulnerable … and they do dumb stuff, that’s why they’re here, closed off in this area so we can manage that process.”

Both current and former staff told 7NEWS they were not shocked by the footage, saying more support was needed at the school.

A teacher claimed knives were often brought onto campus and they were too afraid to confiscate them.

Premier Mark McGowan also addressed the incident with reporters on Thursday.

“What we saw there was absolutely and totally unacceptable so the Education Department, no doubt, will investigate,” he said.

Earlier in the week, SMYL confirmed it was “aware of a serious incident” and “disciplinary action” had been taken against students – which included several suspensions.

For many of the students who attend the school, SMYL is a last resort for teenagers who have been forced out of mainstream schooling.
