Australië: Parents remove children from school, saying Wi-Fi networks are making them sick
woensdag, 08 april 2015 - Dossier: Ervaringen burgers

2 april 2015

A FAMILY have taken their children out of school because they believe the Wi-Fi networks are making them ill.

Parents Oliver Spencer and Danielle Sykes-Spencer from Hornsby Heights removed their youngest three children from classes two weeks ago, and are looking into options for them to be educated at home.

They said extensive research they’ve done suggests the illnesses their children suffer, including depression, anxiety, headaches and hormonal problems, have been caused by industrial electromagnetic networks or Wi-Fi, which many schools now have.

The Spencers said the fact that the World Health Organisation (WHO) classified such networks as “possibly carcinogenic” means children should not be exposed to them at school.

Mr Spencer said: “We started doing a little bit of research that had the biological effects and the limits and the ranges, and everything the kids were suffering was on the list.

“In other countries they are taking the Wi-Fi out. In France they’ve banned it in nurseries and they’re advising it in primary schools. Germany’s going back to hard wiring I believe.

“Every day there’s something new that’s coming out. It’s more and more confirming that we really have to be careful with this stuff.”

Hornsby North pupils Georgia, 8, and Nikkita, 5, as well as Bianna, 14, who was at Asquith Girls, have stopped going to classes, while eldest daughter Ellanah, 16, is still at Ku-rin-gai Arts High.



Georgia has complained of popping sensations in her head and headaches, while Nikki was showing hormonal changes.

Mrs Sykes-Spencer said she felt guilty her children were missing out.

“I really want them at school and that's why we want the schools to address it,” she said “There are thousands of studies showing the facts.”

A spokesman for the NSW Department of Education and Communities said they continue to monitor research findings in relation to the health risk posed by wireless networks.

Senior research fellow in epidemiology at Monash University, Geza Benke, who has researched the impact of mobile phone use on children, said it was too soon to say whether Wi-Fi had harmful health effects.

“At this stage I don’t think there is sufficient information out there to say Wi-Fi is any problem at all,” he said.

However, there have been other claims Wi-Fi in educational establishments causes illnesses.

Dr Marie-Therese Gibson, who served for 19 years as principal of the Tangara School for Girls at Cherrybrook, resigned in 2013 due to health problems she blames on Wi-Fi installed three years ago, according to reports.

A Sydney University physics lecturer, Dr James McCaughan, also quit his job after Wi-Fi exposure from smart phones in the lecture room “shut me down’’, it was reported.
