Parents 'disgusted' with kids being distributed 'penis-shaped' sweets at school
Melbourne, May 14 (ANI): Parents in Australia are outraged after their children were distributed explicit novelty chocolates at a school's Mother's Day function.
Packets of chocolates shaped like penises, breasts and buttocks - as well as others depicting couples having sex - were passed out in see-through bags at a P 'n' C function held at Woodberry Public School in the Hunter Valley last Friday.
Cassandra Lacey, who has two sons at the school, said that she was horrified to be handed a bag of the treats as she walked through the door.
"As soon as I opened mine, my son said, 'Ah, Mum' and I had to do a double-take," News.com.au quoted Lacey as saying.
"Every single chocolate was to do with sex. This was in the school hall, on the school grounds and in school time."
It is believed that the chocolates were left over from last year's P 'n' C Mother's Day fundraiser, held as an adults-only girls' night at a local venue.
P 'n' C spokeswoman and school council president Jenny Gray said that she was not present at Friday's function but intended to meet principal Josie Bailey to discuss the issue.
"All I can tell you is that it has come to my attention and yes, I have spoken to the principal and we'll be having a meeting on Monday," Gray said.
She asserted that the issue would not be "swept under the carpet"
A Department of Education and Communities spokesman insisted that the school's administration was not aware beforehand of the explicit nature of the handouts.
"The school says that the 'gifts' were prepared by parents, for parents, and the school had no knowledge of them until some of the mothers complained," he said.
He added that Bailey had apologised to parents.
Parents also had no idea before the event, which even grandmothers were invited to attend, that saucy confectionery would be distributed.
"Mums, grandmas, aunties! You're invited to our Mother's Day afternoon tea," an entry on the school's Facebook page read last Wednesday.
"Come have afternoon tea with your child/ren, 2.50 dollars. Tea/coffee/scones and a present!"
Another woman who attended Friday's function said she watched on, "absolutely disgusted", as children were given the chocolates.
"My nine-year-old grandson gave this zip-lock bag to me, put it in my lap and said to me, 'You've got a willy in there Nanny'," she said.
"Then I had a three-year-old sit down next to me and she said, 'Hey, what's this?' She had this brown chocolate shaped like a penis and was about to eat the top off it.
"I told her she had better go and talk to her mother," she added. (ANI)
