Posted November 03, 2018 08:04:58 A teacher in Queensland has been attacked by pupils who hurled racial and homophobic slurs at her and her husband after they returned to school to prepare for the New Year.
More than 20 students allegedly hurled abuse at Ms Wylie-Gale at her school in Brisbane’s west on Wednesday.
Ms Wysie-Garland, who is white, was among those who took to social media to vent their frustrations at the new year and how they felt about being a teacher.
Ms Gale said the incident began as she prepared for school, and she was approached by students at the school’s gymnasium.
One boy shouted, “You’re a faggot,” while another shouted “You are a pig.”
Ms Wydie-Roe, who has worked at the Queensland School for Girls for eight years, said the students called her “sodgy” and “a sissy” before telling her that “the white boys hate you”.
One boy, identified as 17-year-old Kody, was reportedly punched by one of the boys and punched in the head by another.
“I got a couple of blows to my face, I’m pretty shaken up,” Ms Wyddie-Wysie said.
Ms Gales, who was a nurse in her final year at the prestigious University of Queensland, said she and her wife, a former nurse, were on the way home when the incident started. “
That’s when I started to get really frustrated.”
Ms Gales, who was a nurse in her final year at the prestigious University of Queensland, said she and her wife, a former nurse, were on the way home when the incident started.
“They were all talking about it and saying, ‘Oh you’re a pig’.” Ms Wyrddie Wysiie-Graves, who said the boys were wearing hoodies and shorts, said that one boy was wearing a T-shirt with a swastika on it and that the other boys were dressed in black hoodies.
“It was disgusting,” she said.
Another pupil, identified only as 18-year to 20-year old Sam, said he saw Ms Wynkie-Hale “getting bullied”.
“We all knew she was a good person, but we just couldn’t believe that people were targeting her,” he said.
Ms Wyddie was forced to leave her job at the university to take care of her family.
She said she is not afraid to speak up and she is concerned about how the incident will affect other teachers.
“We’re just very grateful that the students haven’t attacked me and my wife,” she told ABC Radio Brisbane.
She said that while she is grateful for the outpouring of support she received, she is now “really angry and scared”. “
This is an issue that affects all teachers.”
