Daren McDonald started this petition to Coffs Harbour Christian Community School (David Hamilton, Chair, Board of Directors)

I was shocked to see that the principal of Coffs Harbour Christian Community School has attacked climate campaigner, Greta Thunberg in his school newsletter. He said she was promoting “doomsday waffle talk” and urged people not to listen to her. He even called into question the mental health of this brave and inspirational young leader. This principal said Greta was an “attention-getter” and claimed she thought her “mental problems” gives her a “special insight” into our “impending doom.” I am gobsmacked that an educator could seek to belittle a young person like this. Australia is better than this. Humanity is better than this.

Young people like Greta and students around the world are taking a brave stand to save their futures. We should be celebrating and supporting students standing up for the environment and their future, not attacking their character. 

Will you join me in calling on the school's Board of Directors to demand that the principal immediately issue an unreserved apology to Greta Thunberg?

Please support me in condemning this spiteful attack and make this school educator accountable for his words, by signing and sharing this petition. Let’s show brave young people, like Greta others, that we have their backs as they fight for their future.
