Calare Public School principal Chris Cundy's letter of apology

Dear Parents/Carers,

You may have seen media coverage resulting from an internal staff email which included inappropriate comments about a new school program to support students.

I have apologised to staff.  My attempt at humour was misguided and inappropriate.

I apologise for any hurt or grief I have caused anybody in the school and wider Calare community.

I have made a serious error of judgement.  My heart is with every student at Calare.  It always has been and always will be.

Parents lash out at principal: 'some people just don't have a heart'

Readers' comments: what's been written on our website and Facebook page

This school is committed to supporting its students.  The new initiative highlighted was one the school had chosen to undertake as part of our efforts to assist all students.

I wish to assure you that Calare Public is a caring school that looks after the needs of every student in a respectful way.

I am sorry that I have blurred that image through my inappropriate written comments.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Chris Cundy

Principal Calare Public School
