MP frustrated by school lockdowns

After a bomb threat call was made to Pakenham Springs Primary School today, State Member for Bass, Brian Paynter MP says he is sick of the disruption being made to students and teachers if they are ridiculous hoax calls.

“This is a time for students, and in particular preps and new students to the school to be making friends and settling in, not experiencing fear during evacuations”, Mr Paynter said.

“If these are hoax calls I hope they cease immediately so schools can get on with educating our children and not have precious time wasted” he said.

Mr Paynter stated he supported the action of the Police and the school’s response to ensure the safety of the students.
