It's the falafels.

BigV 02-25-2012 11:03 PM

LOL!

That's a lot of falafels...

Sundae 03-01-2012 02:33 PM

Today started foggy, but it burned off midmorning and felt like Spring.
So I went outside at lunchtime because neither of my teachers had an immediate need and I get restless with 70 minutes of lunchtime to fill.

Right before the whistle blew, I was talking to two of my Year Twos and they pointed out something that looked like faeces to one side of the Quiet Area (bark chips and benches etc). They told me it was poo, and it did look suspiciously like poo, but then it couldn't be. The playground was used for two Playtimes earlier in the day, so it couldn't have been there then, and an animal on the playground between 11.15 and 12.00 would be spotted! It was right ouside Class 6 for a start.

I went in before the children and wondered if I should raise it (and yes, I was thinking about clearing it up myself because it didn't look good regardless). Events got away from me. I needed to write a social story for Mars, because he shouted at one of our student teachers yesterday. We then had a one-on-one and by the time I came back in, the story had spread anyway.

Our HLTA sidled up and told me someone had done a poo on the playground, and could I keep an ear and a nose out to see if we could work this out. I felt a little relief that the matter was out of my hands (oof!)

Next I knew, our HLTA was talking to the HLTA in the class next door (my morning class - Tiger's class) and there was discussion about moist wipes and replacement clothes and all. It was a boy in that class. One who has bowel problems and one I have cleaned up after before. This was a bad one - what ended up on the playground had obviously tumbled through underwear and trousers. He was in a bit of a state. To say the least. But then this is a boy who has had to take his shoes home in a sealed bag after a previous explosive event.

I'm very sorry for him - he has a known condition. He must have been horrified and too scared to tell.
I feel sorry for Mrs J - crikey me I dodged a bullet there.
And for Mrs I, who from what I can gather was the outside pooper-scooper.

I really wish I'd done something or said something immediately.
Next time I won't sit and think. At the very least I'll raise a concern with a teacher and get their advice.

Aliantha 03-01-2012 04:48 PM

I wouldn't blame myself too much if I were you Sundae. These things happen.

I wonder about why the boy isn't wearing those larger nappies that fit like undies if he's still having accidents when he's school age. surely the humiliation of having accidents at school would be worth it?

BigV 03-07-2012 09:44 PM

SonofV asked me today, "Dad, what is this k-o-n-y thing?" He spelled it to me. I had no idea, and said so. He said it's everywhere. Oops, guess I live in a hole.

fast forward to this evening

My girlfriend, who I love very much, asked me "Have you heard of this Kony 2012 thing?". No, there's this hole and all... wtf? I told her about SonofV's similar query. She said it was the buzz the minute she walked in the door at work. Ok, ok, please help me here. Turns out there's a video.

KONY 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice.


I'm not even done with the video and I have to post this. I'm not a chicken little kind of guy, but this is a great piece of film-making, please do watch it. It's thirty minutes and so far, totally worth it.

For those of you who need more text with your teasers, here you go:

Grisly killings, abductions, and rapes allegedly committed by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) in central Africa have garnered international attention following the release of a video highlighting abuses committed by the group and its leader, Joseph Kony.

The half-hour film (above) produced by Invisible Children follows a former child soldier named Jacob. The film issues a call for action, reportedly aiming to raise awareness by making Joseph Kony a household name.

HungLikeJesus 03-07-2012 09:50 PM

So Joseph Kony is the hero of the story?

BigV 03-07-2012 10:07 PM

If you watch the movie, there's a description of what's going on that starts at about the nine minute mark. The film maker tells his very young son what he's doing, including a description of Joseph Kony. I don't want spoil it for you, just go watch the movie.

Aliantha 03-07-2012 10:29 PM

My kids and their friends are all talking about this clip.

classicman 03-07-2012 11:05 PM

Its all over FB. Has been for a week or so. I posted that same clip there yesterday.

Aliantha 03-07-2012 11:11 PM

There are a few mainstream movies that have documented this (or similar) issue. Blood Diamond is the big one, but Hotel Rwanda is another. The Last King of Scotland touches on it too.

It's amazing how common this practice is.

glatt 03-08-2012 08:31 AM

I first heard of this Kony thing about half an hour ago. There was a little article in the paper. Somebody in the article was saying that sure, Kony is horrible, but to blame all the central Africa problems on him is very unfair, because it's common practice there.

But I'd be in favor of somebody other than the US military putting a stop to the inhumane behavior in the world. Especial that done by this guy.
