My son just received his primary school seniors shirt and his name was accidentally left off the year level list on the back! The school has admitted fault and are not sure how he was left off as the final design was checked by several people. My son is extremely disappointed and upset that this has happened.
I have approached the school about it and at this point am not happy with there reply.
Has this ever happened to anyone and what did your school do about it?
What would your reaction be if it happened to your child? And finally what do you think the school should do about it?
Thank you 🙂

Has this happened to anyone else?

That must be a terrible feeling. Your poor son. What was the schools response? I *think* I would be asking them to do another print run (how many shirts were made?).

Go to the media

Who was at fault? School or printing place? They need to reprint it.

Between the lines it seems the schools response was to the effect 'too bad too late'
It is a principle. It should be reprinted.

I would expect that they print another shirt for your son and potentially for the whole class (depending on the size of the class and cost of the shirts - might not be a feasible option). If your son had to pay for his shirt they should also refund this money.
No one is perfect and mistakes happen but they should be a little more sympathetic and try to fix things as best they can.

Oh no, how devastating!
I would be wanting all of the shirts reprinted.

This has happened when I was teaching year six. Spelling errors. .misprints.
I think it's reasonable to get another printed shirt with his name on it. They should do that.
Once we've had to run an entire class reprint. But that was a rare thing.
Sorry. I think going to the media is overreacting. It's a mistake that can be easily remedied.
A mature conversation with your son about it could alleviate his disappointment too (to an extent) ..and the school can do another shirt.

1) The son is upset
2) the school has been approached
Our OP has made an effort, it seems the school has not.
There's no offer to make the situation good.
Media is an over reaction ????
Is this not but one step from the media coming here. This is social networking. Many news items come fromm places just like this.
How many times must the school be approached.
Yes the school had been approached. Next could be the education department
Then the minister
That's all a lot of time and effort that should not have been required in the first place.
It seems to me the OP has tried already with the school
