An Australian elementary school has banned hugging and other displays of affection between pre-teen boys and girls to set a good
example for younger students, the principal said Tuesday.

"We set strong standards of behavior for our Year 6 and 7 students, who are seen as role models by our younger students," Gale said in a statement, referring to the school's oldest students, ages 11 to 13.

The said hugging between friends was not banned "but we do discourage displays of affection in the school yard among students who have a boyfriend or girlfriend at the school."

The Largs Bay ban came to public attention after some parents contacted the local newspaper to complain that the policy was too strict. Gale said she had not been approached by any parents
