The principal of a Mandurah private college that banned a seven-year-old girl from speaking of her father's sexuality has defended his school.
Andrew Newhouse, a former candidate for Family First, said in a statement the purpose of Foundation Christian College was to provide children with a Christian education.
"The board has a clearly enunciated Christian world view which all parents are made aware of before enrolment is confirmed," he said.
"Recently, a father withdrew his year one daughter from the College as he came to understand that the college was unable to support his world view.
"A same-sex world view is not congruent with our Christian world view.
"While we respect the rights of others to hold different world views, the college has an obligation to the parents to maintain the Christian world view in all aspects of the college."
State MP Peter Abetz also spoke in defence of the school yesterday.
"I think it's perfectly right for a school, a Christian school, to maintain a Christian focus," he said.
