Police were called to break up a fight between two mothers outside a western Sydney school.
The feud started during school pick-up time at Maronite College of the Holy Family School in Harris Park on Monday afternoon, as dozens of young children watched on.
Mobile phone footage obtained by 9NEWS shows school staff, other parents and even a nun trying to intervene as the women continue to yell at one another.
The school’s principal, Sr Margaret Ghosn, released a statement on the school’s Facebook page expressing her disappointment.
“The behaviour of a number of parents was extremely inappropriate and they will be addressed accordingly,” Sr Ghosn wrote.
“I apologise for any young children who had to witness such rude and violent behaviour from adults.”
The school’s principal, Sr Margaret Ghosn, released a second statement on the school’s Facebook page this morning stating,
“I will make it very clear that at MCHF we will not tolerate such behaviour from parents.
We pride ourselves on being a family at MCHF. I hope this incident serves as a lifelong reminder to all our parents that disrespectful behaviour is unacceptable.
I trust that from now on our parents will show respect, both on school grounds, towards staff and students, as well as out on the street in regards to picking up and dropping off students.”
