Emerald high school suspends 22 students in two days

AT LEAST 22 students have been suspended from Emerald State High School in two days this week, leaving parents outraged.

The mass suspensions have been delivered for different incidents at the school, one involving a knife.

Parents of the students who have been suspended think the school are "taking it too far".

Acting principal Kirrily Gillies said the school makes no apologies for taking a "strong stance against inappropriate behaviour".

"Any behaviour that compromises the safety and wellbeing of students and staff is not tolerated and dealt with the utmost importance," Ms Gillies said.

"Students can be, and are, disciplined for behaviour that has a negative impact on students or the operation of the school."
