Melbourne: Primary school students stage sit-down protest over school policy

14 June: Year six students at a Melbourne school have staged a protest over a decision to extend a ban on contact sport to all physical contact including high-fives and hugs.

The new rule was broadcast over the school’s PA system with the children left to notify their parents, the Herald Sun reports.

Students from Mount Martha Primary yesterday sat on the school’s oval to highlight their anger at the move.

After the demonstration the pupils reportedly gathered in the school’s gym where they were told off by teachers.
