An Actual School Telephone Message From Australia

A must listen for anyone with kids of any age.


This is the message that the Maroochydore High School, Queensland ,Australia, staff voted unanimously to record on their school telephone answering machine. This is the actual answering machine message for the school.

This came about because they implemented a policy requiring students and parents to be responsible for their children's absences and missing homework. The school and teachers are being sued by parents who want their children's failing grades changed to passing grades - even though those children were absent 15-30 times during the semester and did not complete enough school work to pass their classes.

Way to go, Aussies!

"I checked out the article regarding the Australia telephone message and according to Snopes.com it is False! I would have hoped it was true since there is a lot of truth to the message."
