Students at a primary school in Sydney, Australia, have been terrorized by extremist Muslim students who threaten them with violence, including beheadings, according to a report in Heatstreet on Friday.
The ongoing abuse from Islamic students at Punchbowl Public School has prompted three teachers to take a leave of absence, and one has reportedly quit.
According to documents that were given to reporters, three staff members have “taken a leave of absence owing to stress, received counseling, and been awarded compensation after bullying from Islamic students.”
The teacher who quit said that “she was receiving death threats to her family from her year 5 and 6 students, with some saying they would behead her.”
She said that she had noticed the “extraordinary behavior [of Muslims] in the class” as far back as 2014, and lodged several complaints at the time. One example she gave was that students harassed her “after she stopped them from hanging a Syrian flag in the classroom.”
The teacher also said that she “was pushed into a corner by students who began marching around her chanting the Koran,” according to the report, which noted that teachers weren’t the only ones being bullied by the Muslim students.

The teacher reported that the Muslim children “bullied other students by saying that someone had ‘betrayed his religion’ by ‘not going to Muslim scripture.'” In another incident, she said a “group of boys had stood around a girl and called her horrible names like ‘dog.'”
School officials insisted that they had no knowledge or awareness of religious-related violence taking place at the school, however, the teachers were compensated for their suffering.
“All NSW schools must immediately report all concerns of anti-social and extremist behavior in NSW schools to a dedicated hotline,” said a spokesman, adding, “The Department of Education continues to work closely with law enforcement agencies on such matters. To maintain effective operations and protect the privacy of students, the department will not identify schools participating in these programs.”
