    Principal slams Annastacia Palaszczuk over school quarantine

    ‘We don’t treat our prisoners that way’: Queensland boarding schools ordered to force their young students into isolation by LOCKING them in their bedrooms for two weeks under cruel coronavirus rules

    A school principal has slammed the Queensland government for asking her to treat her students worse than prisoners by forcing them into solitary confinement for two weeks.

    Linda Evans, the head of Fairholme College in Toowoomba, said the demand to make 12-year-old borders quarantine when they return after school holidays interstate is inhumane.

    ‘We would not do that because, from a mental health perspective, to place a child in a room on their own for two weeks and place their meal outside their door constitutes solitary confinement. 

    ‘We don’t treat our prisoners that way we won’t treat our children that way,’ she told Sunrise. 

    Mrs Evans slammed premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, saying: ‘If we can’t approach the leader of our state and seek advice and seek empathy and compassion, I don’t understand why she is leading our state.’ 

    Federal Education Minister Dan Tehan will today host a meeting with state education ministers on the issue. 

    He will push for a ‘boarding school bubble’ that will allow children to return to their families, isolate at home, then go back to school with no quarantine required.

    Liberal-National MP Andrew Laming, who chairs the parliamentary committee on education said yesterday the current rules were comparable to US military camp Guantanamo Bay.

    ‘This verges on cruel and unusual punishment belonging in Guantanamo Bay’, he said.

    ‘We don’t know the depth of the mental health damage that’s done.’

    Australian Boarding Schools Association chief executive Richard Stokes wants the quarantine requirements to be scrapped.  

    ‘They will come back and live in an individual room and bathroom and be fed a meal in their room for two weeks.

    ‘It is criminal to do that to an 11-year-old, or to a 17-year-old doing their first ATAR exam.’ 

    There are 1,614 boarders whose families live in another state, according to the Courier-Mail.

    They include 816 in NSW, 109 in Victoria, 98 in Queensland, 18 in Tasmania, 50 in South Australia, 77 in Western Australia and 408 in the Northern Territory.
