To not ban skateboards at Mt Eliza Secondary College

Skateboards are a vaild form of transport for many students of this college. They do not harm anyone in the community, and serve as not only a means of transport, but a tool for expression. M.E.S.C appears to be targeting skateboarders because of false stereotypes and unfounded fears.

      I've had just about enough of older citizens in Mt Eliza trying to exclude youngsters from their rightful place in the community. We've seen the the Shire Council build a skatepark in the most ridiculously isolated location, after years of procrastination, simple to appease those who feel threatened by a generation no different from themselves when they were young. Now, the school is cow-towing to pressure from the same ill-informed section of society. Skateboarding is a healthy, eco-friendly form of transport and should be encouraged, not banned. If it wants to moderate behaviour, why doesn't the school incorporate skateboarding into its curriculum and teach good skateboarding etiquette?

      Best of luck Spencer, you're going to need it!

      Because mesc is baning skateboards and it's not right that we cannot ride them they are taking a portable form of transport away from us and some people need skateboards for riding home or because its easier way of gettin to a bus stop catching we cannot take bikes on the bus but we can take skate boards mesc is taking it away from us it's not fair.
