“In a multi-ethnic environment, it causes problems,” Parma said, saying his decisions had been influenced by an unhappy experience last year.

I wonder who caused this unhappy experience ?

“Last year we had a Christmas concert and some parents insisted on having carols. The Muslim children didn’t sing, they just stood there, absolutely rigid."

What a surprise. Muslims integrating as usual.

The headmaster just decided to add to the traditional Catholic festivities a so-called Winter Concert, to be held on 21 January. Parma also denied press reports that he had banned crucifixes from classrooms.

Reports from staff, some parents and teachers seem to confirm the headmaster's version of events. "No festivity was cancelled, all activities planned for these days were scheduled in September, plus a winter concert to be held in January," Maria Sbrescia, spokesperson for the school's parents, said.

"On 21 December, the primary school's classes will welcome parents to share a few moments of joy: this is the famous Christmas party," Sbrescia said. "Secondary school will sing Christmas carols on 17 December."

The controversy allegedly originated from the headmaster's decision to say no to two mothers who wanted to teach Christmas carols to the children during lunch breaks. "I only denied them to enter school during lunch break and teach religious songs to Christian children – something that I still consider inappropriate," he said in the resignation letter.

Promotes integration and multiculturalism by banning a cultural event and excluding a religious festival.

Strong logic.

You don't have to ban Christmas because a few kids won't sing. Banning Christmas doesn't help bring cultures together at all. Instead, why don't they try introduce celebrations from other cultures into the school?

I know right.

Tbh, I'm just wondering, if they want to promote multiculturalism, why can't they just integrate the other cultural events? I know some schools who let people have a non-school day during the end of events like Ramadan

And, if it was a Christian School, shouldn't they expect stuff like that? Because, y'know, it makes sense for a Christian School to do Christian Events.

No offence, that's just my opinion


P.S.

Sorry for the horrible grammar 😞
