I am somehow sad today...This weeks hottest here in my place became a national news it has been talked for a week now since one Catholic School will not allow few of its students join the graduation march just because they were on their bikini in a party and posted it on facebook, then just wednesday the court had given its decision mandating the school to let this student join the graduation rights however, this evening I heard from the news that earlier today (graduation day)they were not allowed to join still...I just felt bad because they are kids/minors and have every rights to join school activities. I graduated from a sectarian school but I felt it is soooo unfair and stupid.

this is a bit silly how can they not allow them to graduate still do not know in which country but everyone has their own life and it is right that they respect him and follow him. at least in our case. I live in Bulgaria and there are no such things is ridiculous and very rude. Thanks for this information. nice day!

If you go to a religious school and they frown upon certain things or they are in the rules then don't do it. If you decide to go against what the school believes then you deserve what you get. That is why they have story after story in the news watch what you post on the internet because it will come back to haunt you. Employers now look at facebook as well to see if you are a person they really want to hire. I personally don't think a person should post as much as some do about their personal life on the internet.

no I don't think so because the constitution where I am from says that any Child is given the right to attend school activities, plus the fact that the school did not give them due process I don't think that the school has any right at all to decide. The law of the land should prevail even if it is contradicting to the school policies. It has already been decided upon I think the school needs to draw the line.

You are right. Missing school activities isn't a real punishment, it's not a productive one, anyway. As a teacher, you have to understand what are the boundaries of punishment. Except, if the kids were told something like: If you make one more mistake, you are not aloud to participate in this year's graduation day; than I can say it's fair to keep their word.

I can't understand how this decision was to be taken. Whatever the students did, should not be effect on their study career. We say that there is freedom in our country, where is freedom? If they were on their bikini in a party, what's wrong with that? They are adults not kids who can't understand what is right or what is wrong. It is totally a worst decision i must say, totally against with those students future. They reserve the right to live their life as they want. Nobody should interfere on their life. My total sympathy for the effected students. I wish them best of luck and I hope that court will cancel the decision against the future blooming flowers.
