Instead of clapping the school encourages children to "punch the air, pull excited faces and wriggle about on the spot"

The school, on Sydney’s northern beaches, only allows students to share a "silent cheer" in favour of applause, to show "respect" to students sensitive to noise.

The news comes the same day as it was reported that teachers at prominent Sydney school Cheltenham Girls High have been told to address students using gender-neutral terms only.

The school, which retains the word "Girls" in its title, has allegedly moved to stop referring to students as “girls”, “ladies” and “women”, in a bid to create a safe environment for any LGBTI students who are apparently uncomfortable with gender labels.
