This is to bring back the event which occurred recently involving two amazing teachers at punchbowl boys high school. The principal Chris grithins and deputy Joumana Denouwi have been stood down due to a number of false aspects involving radicalism. The deception and misleading information the media has portrayed on social media is unreal. I am a former school captain at punchbowl boys high school. I graduated in 2014 with the help of both these teachers. Chris and Joumana put in their effort into the school to aid the students in every way possible wether it involves education or not, they still managed to help the students. The role they play at the school is amazing, the outcome of the school after Chris became principal is absolutely tremendous. The results of students, uniform, respect etc. both teachers applied their unique pedagogy in order to meet the needs of students and parents. I strongly believe that the decision the department of education made is unfair and did not show justice to the students or the community itself. Both these teachers were role models for the school just like how they were my role models. I am currently studying a bachelor of education at the university of New South Wales, thanks to both these teachers for getting me to where I am at this stage. I am studying education and the reason being is because of the wonderful things I saw from both these teachers during school years, wether it is helping students, organsing events to satisfy the students etc, this made me want to become a teacher because I want to be just like them and put a smile on students faces. The unity they established within the school formed the sense of family. The staff, the students, and thus the parents. I can not thank them enough for what they have done for myself and other students. I am extremely shocked at this poor decision which was made.
