When Casey Heynes was assaulted by Ritchard Gale the school bully at Dunheved Campus grade 7-10 school in New South Wales Australia, he defended himself from further harm while another bully stood by filming the attack:
Ritchard the little bully was suspended from Dunheved, but so was Casey - for fighting back against Ritchard's unprovoked, in-progress physical assault.
Dunheved Campus administrators should be doubly ashamed of themselves. Not only does the video show how they failed to provide Casey with the safe learning environment they promise every student, but now they're faulting Casey - the victim here - for defending himself from an unprovoked brutal physical assault.
Dunheved student Casey Heynes deserves much better than being thrown under the bus by school administration under the lie "all students caught fighting on school grounds will be suspended..." That's pure BS and everyone knows it, the video shows it; Casey was forced to defend himself against a bully the only way he knew how. If the school had any understanding of bullying whatsoever, they would understand what happened here. But they don't.
