“The Jewish Board of Deputies will work closely with Cranbrook leadership to ensure students at the school receive additional education on the harmful effects of dehumanizing their peers,” Bark said.
The Herald has also reported an increase in anti-Semitic incidents at other schools, including Rose Bay Secondary College. This comes amid a rise in anti-Semitism across Australia and around the world, and an academic study shows that Christian, Muslim and Hindu students are also being bullied in Australian schools.
Recent reports of an online chat room run by Knox Grammar students also revealed widespread misogynistic, homophobic and transphobic behavior.
Wentworth MP Allegraspender said bullying, anti-Semitism, racism and inclusion are key issues to be discussed at two education summits she plans to hold in November with primary and secondary school students from schools in her eastern suburbs.
“Discussions about bullying, racism and anti-Semitism will be front and center because they have local implications and broader political implications,” saidspender. “I will work with the Jewish community to have these discussions.”
