Dad's furious letter to school over 'sexist' activities for Year 6

A father has slammed his daughter's school for dividing activities by gender and sending the Year 6 girls to make-up classes.

 

The dad from western NSW shared the letter to Twitter on Thursday, which said his daughter Ruby had left for school in 2017 but returned as if it were 1968.

He said her Year 6 teachers had divided the male and female students, sending the 'girls' to get their "hair and make-up done" and the boys to Bunnings.

"Are you able to search the school buildings for a rip in the space-time continuum?" the annoyed father wrote in the letter addressed to the principal.

"Perhaps there is a faulty Flux Capacitor hidden away in the girls’ toilet block?

“I look forward to this being rectified and my daughter and other girls at the school being returned to this millennium where school activities are not divided sharply along gender lines.”

The father-of-three said the humorous letter was aimed at making a point about "everyday sexism," news.com.au reported.

He said Ruby was annoyed she had not been given the option to go to Bunnings, despite being happy to have her hair done.

“Yes the boys should be given the hairstyle choice too, but girls and women still bear the brunt of thoughtless sexism," he said.

The father said he is speaking to the school's principal on Thursday.
