A public school has banned five and six year old children from attending a pirate show if their parents do not pay a voluntary charge.
Ashmore State School on the Gold Coast sent a new enrichment experiences policy to the parents in February, describing the $ 110 student resource program.
Parents were told that if they did not fully pay the fee, their children would be excluded from school activities Gold Coast Bulletin reported.
Under the scheme, every student who falls below a turnout percentage of 93 percent would also be excluded from school activities.

The school organized a pirate show on Thursday and a number of students were banned because their parents had not paid the funds.
Some parents allegedly consider protesting the decision by taking their children out of school on the day of the event.
& # 39; Many parents did not even see the e-mail and were unaware that it would be five to ten minutes later for their child to go to school five or ten minutes, and now have the school not so helpful found, & # 39; a mother told me. the publication.
& # 39; When parents expressed concern and indignation about this absolute absurdity, they were told that their children were still welcome to dress for the pirate day, but would still be separated from their class when the pirate show was on. & # 39;
A spokesperson for the Queensland Department of Education said that enrichment experience costs are a separate entity for the regular school fees and the costs for excursions.
& # 39; Children who do not participate in the enrichment experience will receive alternative activities. Parents who have questions or concerns about the requirements of students at their school are encouraged to talk to their child's school principal, & # 39; said the spokesperson.
The idea behind Enrichment Experiences Policies is to include & # 39; inclusive activities & # 39; to promote among students.
Pursuant to the Education Act (General Provisions) of 2006, a school can request compensation for specialized educational programs.
If this fee is not paid, a student can be excluded, but the director can also cancel the fee if the family cannot pay the costs or if a student suffers from an educational deficit due to missing the program.
The head of the Ashmore State School could not be reached for comment.
