A teacher in a Queensland primary school has told a local ABC station that he or she will not be taking any physical education lessons because they “do not fit in with the school ethos”.
In a letter published on the school’s website, the principal said the school had “lost touch with its community” and that the “health and wellbeing of the students” had been compromised.
“The school cannot and should not teach physical education as a compulsory subject,” the principal wrote.
The school also said it would not allow students to wear the pink shirt and shorts that many parents have complained about.
The ABC contacted the school, but did not receive a response from the principal.
