I am a parent of 13 years old daughter studying at Zayed
I am a parent of 13 years old daughter studying at Zayed college for girls in Auckland. I am seeking advice for the injustice stand-down of my daughter from school My daughter inyear9 posted a man with a gun pointing at a cat on the 22nd of September 2021. but she stand-down the student on the 27th of October 2021 which is 36days later. Standdown is a normal punishment for students in every school but the process in Zayed College followed is not as per MOE guidelines We need to investigate that the event occurred on Sept 22, all teachers are part of the chat group, why R***(Principal of the school ) raised the issue after 36 Days, When was she informed of the post in the group? Why did you not take action on time? As the college is virtually open, the students take their online classes, and as a principal, she must have daily information about the college activities. What pushed her to stand down was the student after 36 days of her action. As we agreed over the phone that I will come to school later today or tomorrow, why does she rush to change the student password? Which disrupted my daughter's studies while she was in the middle of her online class. The mental stress R***, myself and my wife went through that morning can not be described in words. Why not sister R***wait for me and sister F*** to come and meet her in the school? This need to be investigated that the efficiency she showed in 36 days old event, Is she that efficient in day to day school business. On Thu, Oct 28, 2021, at 10:19 AM, the Principal emailed me that the matter is with BOT, and they will decide about the standdown. Which was a misleading statement; issues are escalated to BOT if not resolved on the management level (as a principal, she should have this information.), but Thu, Oct 28, 2021, at 2:21 PM (you send us to stand down later). Now she shall choose the correct statement. She changed the student password ***** the 27th of October between 9 to 10 am and send me a letter on the 28th of October for R*** to stand down. She Mentioned 2 days in the letter but they are 5 days now for stand down all four statements are different This letter is to advise that R*** has been stood-down from school for a period of 2 days. She will be able to return to online learning on Tuesday, 2 November 2021. This evening she emailed me and my daughter that the new icon is also not appropriate(find the attached), I asked her to send me the school policy and list of appropriate icons,the principal replied that there is no policy but it is not allowed in religion.I email her that as a principal your words must be part of the policy approved by the school board. My daughter is already DHD positive, she is using pills and the principal emails ruined her life .she sit depressed. She is all doing this because I am one of the BOT parent rep and raise a different issue about the school, the principal does not like my objection, which is my primary role as a board member. She is continuously targeting my daughter. … read more
