MUT instructs teachers to ignore woman who pulled teacher's hair
Teachers at St Ignatius Secondary School in Handaq have been instructed by the Malta Union of Teachers not to communicate with a woman who recently admitted in court pulling teacher Nadine Piscopo’s hair.
The woman, Rosarita Galea of Siggiewi, admitted to slightly injuring the teacher, saying she had retaliated as the educator had done the same to her child.
Ms Galea was conditionally discharged for two years and told that while she could go to the school and attend parents’ day, she was not allowed to approach the teacher.
In a statement today, the MUT said Ms Piscopo categorically denied pulling the boy’s hair. Ms Piscopo was not called in as witness in court so she could not recount what she went through.
The union directed teachers not to communicate with Ms Galea and to refuse to attend meetings which could be set up with her.
