Well, sad to say school today was not very good at all...
it started with the Principal meeting me in the carpark of the school this morning to tell me not to call or write any letters about the disabled toilet situation that I mentioned in my last post. Of course he must have found out that I had called the DET Disability Support Itinerant Lady yesterday to express my concerns over this not being a functional and safe toilet for Violet being unfinished. He asked me to promise him not to call or write to anyone and added that otherwise it would hold up the toilet being finished!
Unfortunately, the preschool staff were unable to be there today due to being understaffed at the preschool, so Violet had her Vision Support Teacher there for an hour and in this time she fell off her chair and has trashed her knee...I am not convinced this even happened in the classroom, it doesn't look like a carpet burn at all and there was alot of blood.
Then on picking Violet up this afternoon, Emily came out of Violet's classroom. I asked what she was doing in there and she said as preschool staff were not there, she was asked by her and Violet's teacher to look after Violet. This started from after first break this morning! So they left it up to a 10 year old girl to help toilet and look after Violet in general!!! I am fuming! I know Emily is capable of this but that is besides the point...I had numerous meetings last year which involved the school and DET aswell in which they mentioned that they would NOT ask Emily to help Violet with her needs etc. Then I come to school and find out they made Emily miss her own class and was left responsible for Violet nearly all day!
What will they do when she is in the wheelchair post op?
Of course the first thing I did was call the principal when I got home, but he had already left...surprise surprise. I do feel like calling the DET Disability Itinerant Support Lady, but he basically threatened me this morning not to.
So, tomorrow morning I will be taking this issue up with the principal! Failing that...I will be calling the DET Disability Itinerant Support Lady!
