Row over barbecue as primary school opts to offer halal sausages
by John Masanauskas
A row over sausages has a school community sizzling amid competing claims of bigotry and animal cruelty.
What was supposed to be a welcome-back barbecue for students at Coburg West Primary School has turned into a debate over the Islamic halal method of preparing meat.
Members of the school's Parents and Friends Association believed they were being inclusive when they ordered halal-only sausages for last month's barbie.
But some parents thought it was political correctness gone mad to offer only halal meat.
