High school students suspended after Nazi salute, bullying

Source: The Herald

Sydney – A year seven student gave the Nazi salute to taunt one of his classmates amid a series of antisemitic incidents at an inner west high school.

Two students were suspended after a teacher witnessed the incident at the Balmain campus of Sydney Secondary College, a state high school, early last week.

But the antisemitic bullying had gone on for at least a month before then.

The parents of 18 year seven students – both the bullies and their victims – were contacted during the investigation sparked by the June 25 incident.

Most of the harassment is understood to have been propagated by the two ringleaders, who were suspended.
