My DH and several of my close friends went to this school, years ago. They have had the special needs classes at this school for years.
Now this is a video put up by an upset parent, so I cannot say whether it is completely factual or not. The thing is, it is so easy to believe that it is true, which I find really sad.
I used to catch the bus home with a girl who was in one of their special needs classes. She was in the more integrated class and had some mild learning disabilities. She was bullied mercilessly, I remember her telling me once that I was the only "normal" kid who was nice to her.
I hope that this did not happen, and that it was all a big misunderstanding. It really upsets me that these kids missed out on their school formal, because they were "different". Surely we have moved on from this kind of exclusion and bullying?

Read one the other day about a school in tassie that organised their year 6 formal somewhere that had stair only access. Apparently they considered the wheelchair bound student when they planned it. Just not on.

So was she excluded from the formal itself or a private year 10 party?
Either way it's terrible. She appears to be high functioning and it must have hurt her so much to not be included, particularly since there was so much inclusion in primary.
If it's a private after formal party it isn't the school's fault. If it's the formal itself, it's bullsh*t they have not any say in it. In my year 10 and year 12 the school organised it.

I hope this isn't true. Absolutely disgusting if it is. And there are no reasons I can think of that would make it ok.
