Petition to The Australian Government
Fix the School System
The English Industrial Revolution was a giant step forward for the human race. One problem was the treatment of the poor. They had bad work hours, unsafe work places, kids worked in factories and they had small wages. Most of these things have changed, such as, 8 hour works days, minimum wages and safety regulations in the work place. One thing has not changed... the school system. Ever since the Industrial revolution kids have gone to school sat in front of a board and taught to remember information that will help them get a job they don't necessarily want or will be good at. Study shows that people who go through school will forget everything they learn after three years of finishing school. This is because you are required to remember information, this is not a proper way of learning. The best way for someone to learn is for them to be passionate and good at what they're learning, this is why the school system needs to change. The system needs to find what the student is best at and teach them how to perfect that skill, in schools today students have to learn Science, Math, English and Social Studies. Students who fail at these subjects feel less intelligent and less capable then their piers. When really they are amazing at another subject that has been ignored. "Everybody is a Genius. But If You Judge a Fish by Its Ability to Climb a Tree, It Will Live Its Whole Life Believing that It is Stupid." -Einstein This change in the school system will improve the problem of mental health in students, dropouts, failures, etc. With all the jobs available today students should be able to learn what they wish. Please sign the petition so the future generation can do what they love, well, and care free. Thank you https://youtu.be/uLSv17iE_4Q

Let Mrs Sabouni Stay!
Mrs Rhonda Sabouni is the teacher who has changed Al-Faisal-College of Campbelltown the most. The school had no proper sporting equipment or activities but she, an experienced health teacher, has allowed the students to engage in sports not only because of the curriculum but by inspiring the students for the future and teaching them life lessons. She sacrificed her own time and money so that she could build a better future for the students. She’s also a woman of great moral and ethics and she shares her wisdom with everyone. On Friday, 6th December 2019, she had been fired from the school with no explanation or proper justification. She was informed suddenly with no direct contact or face-to-face meeting which left no time for a proper goodbye with the students. This injustice has upset the entire student body of Al-Faisal-College Campbelltown. She always gives advice to students like they’re her own and she always remains positive and energetic despite the amount of workload she endures. Many primary students looked forward to entering high school because they hear about how great she is. Mrs Sabouni has taught the students that even though they are a small school they should always be connected like a family. So we, students of Al-Faisal-College have made this petition to ask the board to reconsider their decision. We would like to make it clear that this is not an attack but simply an approach to the Head Of Colleges and the respected directors of Al-Faisal-College to review their decision because we truly believe Mrs Sabouni can make a positive change to the school as she has many bright and innovative ideas yet to bring into the school. We all just want what is best for the school. We need your help to achieve this and get this noticed. Please help us solve this problem. Sign the petition now! #SaveSabouni Also please leave a respectful comment (anonymously preferred) on why you support this cause.

Stop the WA Government from banning mobile phones in schools
What is the ban? The WA Government has recently announced a complete ban on personal electronic devices in public schools. This includes mobile phones, smart watches, earbuds and tablets. The ban promises to punish those who decide to break the rule, saying that all devices must be “off and away” on school grounds. More information about the ban is available on the WA Government Media Statement website. Why does it matter? The government has backed up the ban, saying that it will help thwart the threat of cyber bullying, while increasing student engagement and grades. Banning personal devices, particularly mobile phones, should not be the solution to stopping cyber bullying and increasing student engagement. What is? Education. Unsurprisingly, education is the answer. We live in a world that thrives through technology, and outright removing it from schools should not be an option. Students going through school now are going to have a job that has the constant distraction that technology can provide, and they are going to have to learn to manage this. Banning technology outright is setting an unrealistic example. In the 21st century, technology is, and always will be, all around us, and students need to learn to manage their use of it, something that could be provided by schools and educational institutions. While it is true that a small minority of students choose to ruin it for everyone else by abusing the right to use their phone during school time, these people are just a minority. The majority of people, myself included, who use a phone during school use it productively - I use mine to access my calendar, to-do list and school email, things I won’t be able to do next year if the ban is implemented. While, the ban might reduce cyber bullying and increase engagement, at what cost? Students of the future, and current students, are going to live in world where technology is all around them, and they need to know how to use it properly to their advantage. Taking it out of the place where they do the majority of their learning is not the solution. How can I take further action? While signing this petition is a great start, more needs to be done to reverse the ban. If you can, please get in touch with your local member of parliament. Attach a copy of this petition to show that you have other people supporting you. On top of this, please share this petition on all your social media channels and encourage your friends to sign it. Thank you!
Petition to Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School
Bring back Mr LoBello
Mr LoBello was one of the greatest teachers at PEGS. Bring him back. He shouldn’t have gone, especially during exams. Some people are saying that he was fired, others are saying he resigned. If he was fired then they need to rehire him with full-effort. If he resigned, then they need to compromise with whatever request the school didn’t agree with. If this was to do with money then give the teachers a raise, education is an important part of the world and is not recognized enough. This is just the beginning.
