    I have nothing to add advice wise on top of what the PPs have said. I just really wanted to say I feel so horrible for your DD (and you!) and send hugs. You're an amazing Mum for handling this so well x

    I'm fuming and it's not my daughter. I can only imagine how it must feel like for you. I'm so sorry that they didn't follow through with your request

    I'm shocked that they blatantly ignored your specific request to be there when they spoke to your DD.
    Yep catholic school, so falls under the district Catholic Education Office.

    Update...
    I emailed the principal first thing this morning, told him what ut was regarding and I wish to speak to him urgently, gave my contact details etc. Waited until 1pm (sent the email at 9), called the school and asked to speak to him only to be told that his ASSISTANT (not assistant principal, the principals PA) would call me back and that the receptionist (the one I was speaking to) didnt know his schedule so couldn't tell me if he was even there or not. I said it was urgent I speak with him, and she got narky and said the assistant will call me.

    Its now just after 7pm and not a single ****ing thing.

    Inform the police. If the school aren't willing to take a sexual assault seriously then take it to the authorities. They would have to report that sort of behaviour (as should the school). I am concerned about where the boy might have picked up that kind of behaviour.

    That's absolutely appalling behavior on the schools part! I'm shocked.

    Good thing you won't have to deal with their crap after this school year.

    I'd be going over the principles head, he had a chance to make things right and seems to be trying to dodge and ignore the whole situation.

    This post makes me sad. Firstly, for your poor innocent daughter who had to endure this perverted incident. I can't imagine how painful and angry this would have made you feel.

    Secondly, for the young boy. What he did is inexcusable, inappropriate and classified as sexual assault. This boy however would not have learnt this behaviour from nowhere, and is very likely to being/or have been sexually abused.

    If the school are going to try and turn a blind eye, it will be up to you to make yourself heard. It will also hopefully allow someone to step in and gain a clearer picture about why this boy behaved in such a manner and possibly be his saving grace.

    This... Or call the school again and say you want the Principal to call you back by 4pm or you are going to the police. Perhaps the Receptionist didn't realise what it was about/how serious it is.
