    I don't at all think he should have gotten away with it, by all means, punish him. I just think 2 weeks is extreme. A child at my younger sisters school only got suspended for 4 days for a physical altercation with another student... so 4 days for a punch up and 2 weeks for throwing a sandwich? Crazy!

    (my sisters school is not far away from the school in question)

    I imagine the kid threw the sandwich, then thought 'oh sh!t, I just did that' and after the fact, would be well aware how silly that was.

    I don't agree with the punishment, although I don't know what he should have got.

    I think 2 weeks is to long for throwing a sandwich.

    I think it is really rude, where is the respect? I would feel the same if a teenager did it to any adult. That kid is a feral bogan. If these are our next leaders, then we are in big trouble.

    I would be mortified if my child was o disgustingly behaved and so disrespectful to anyone- let alone to the PM 2 weeks suspension is nothing, a holiday for the kid. How about a real punishment?

    I think he is allowed back at school now as the investigation can't prove he threw it.

    Don't quote me, but I'm sure I heard it in the news tonight.

    I know I will sound like an sour puss, and I don't mean to, but to any of you who say it is ''funny'', would you find it funny if a random stranger threw a sandwich at you? probably not. I can't imagine any of you peeing yourselves laughing at that.. I think he needs a real punishment.. a 2 week suspension is a holiday at home. If it were my kid that did that, boy would he be in for a nice surprise. He would find himself (on the 2 weeks off) doing some voluntary community work for the elderly.

    Pffft, it didn't even hit her

    Honestly I laughed when I heard and watching the video I didn't think it looked to be a deal. However if it were my child I would be mortified.

    I don't believe giving students a "holiday" from school teaches them anything, inner school suspension is a better punishment. But 2 weeks is a bit much.
