Gold Coast mum who attacked son’s principal banned from the school

A GOLD COAST mother who punched her son’s principal in the head three times has been banned from the school.

It’s understood the agitated mother erupted during a meeting with the headmaster of the Gold Coast state high school in August last year over issues with her son’s laptop.

The AAP reports the woman called the principal obscene names, shoved him in the chest, struck him in the mouth, punched him three times and threatened to have him killed.


The mother was initially banned from the college for two months, however The Department of Education, Training and Employment sought an order from the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal to extend the ban to a period of twelve months.

A decision was published yesterday, where Senior Member Clare Endicott banned the woman from entering school grounds for the maximum period of one year.

The woman’s teenage son now lives with his father in another part of the state.
