School in Australia Forced Seven-Year-Old Student To Leave School Over Gay Dad


Private school in Australia has told the father of a seven-year-old girl that if they knew she had gay parents, she would not have been welcomed.


Brendan asked for his last name not to be mention to protect the identity of his daughter. He raised allegations of discrimination on the basis of his sexuality against Foundation Christian College, based in Mandurah, Western Australia.


After Brendan’s daughter told school friends he was gay, principal Andrew Newhouse told Brendan that his daughter could only stay at the school if she did not speak of her father’s sexuality or his relationship with his partner.


According to the Mandurah Mail report, Brendan said:  “(My daughter) got talking about Tony Abbott and gay marriage and mentioned that her dad is with (my partner) and she was shut down by her teacher and then the teacher had to explain to the class what ‘gay’ is.”


He was later called to go into a meeting, but he thought that it would be about her education and how she was going in class.


Brendan added: “I was told that they don’t promote ‘gay’ at the school and (my daughter) was unable to talk about my life between (my partner) and me and general stuff about what a kid talks about with her parents.”


“The (school) board are firm in their view that families have a mother and father who raise children jointly.”


He concluded: “She could mention my name, but she couldn’t talk about us being gay or relating to us as a couple, so pretty much to a seven-year-old, we were forced to say to (my daughter) that she wasn’t allowed to talk about Daddy or (my partner) at all.”
