Great news on that front, Kochie. We

have seen the consumer goods, stuff

from furniture, floor coverings,

electrical goods have all fallen for

years. The best part is the

Thank you. Time for sport with Simon.

Thank you, Kochie. Collingwood star Dale Thomas says he's hoping to re-sign with the reigning premiers by the AFL's mid-season break. Thomas is certain to field a massive offer from expansion club Greater Western Sydney. But the 23-year-old admits the Gold Coast's early struggles have made the option less appealing.

We've worked hard to get into the

position we are and whether or not

you do throw away, I suppose, the

success for what would be a starting out fresh. Round five kicks off tonight with Brisbane hosting St Kilda at the Gabba. Incoming Newcastle coach Wayne Bennett is already wielding his influence over the NRL club. News Limited reports Bennett has overruled Knights owner Nathan Tinkler and taken a lucrative offer to Cronulla prop Kade Snowden off the table. Snowden's now expected to stay with the Sharks who lost fellow prop Luke Douglas to the Titans last night. Knights skipper Kurt Gidley has re-signed for another four years.

Are you with me? Melbourne Victory can still reach the knockout stage of the Asian Champions League after downing Tianjin Teda 2-1 at a rain-swept Etihad Stadium last night. A brilliant free kick from Carlos Hernandez cancelled out the Chinese side's opening goal and when Robbie Kruse was fouled in first-half stoppage time Kevin Muscat hammered home the subsequent penalty to give the Victory a match-winning lead.

Now, there is a little bit of

mystery about the weather today.

Right now, buy two items from their pendants, lamps or exteriors ranges and you'll get your second item half price. Next week on Sunrise - your ticket to the royal wedding. We've live in London. As Kate ask Wills say, "I do." Spiffy.

Broadcasting from our special purpose-built glass studio at Buckingham Palace. Sunrise has the team you want - Kochie and Mel will be joined by - Nuala Heffner, Monique Wright and the Queen's former press secretary Dickie Arbiter. We'll have the inside story. Exclusive access to the Royal Family plus London's biggest stars. So romantic. Whatever... It all starts Monday, only on Sunrise, the home of the royal wedding. (BAND PLAYS) As the royal wedding nears, are continuing to practice. British army bands are continuing to practise.

They're all from that brassed of

They're all from that brassed affoff movie. Good. They won't just be taking part in official events but also entertaining the crowds along the wedding procession route. You'll enjoy that.

I know, I am going to admit, I am

actually starting to get a bit excited.

Oh my gosh! Wow!

Oh my gosh! Wow!O The whatever

thing? You have left that.

Well the romance I don't care for.

But the brass bands are good. So

different, aren't we. For the latest on the build-up to the big event

we're joined now by Sunrise UK correspondent Martin Frizell. Martin, the band members were practising in short sleeves. Is the weather warming up ahead of tomorrow week's wedding?

Yes, Mel and Kochie, good morning,

it is the hottest day of the year

here in London today, 26 degreeess

nothing for Australia but 5 degrees

hotter than normal. Come the wedding

day, they will have the full

regimental uniform on, woolen tunics

and the big bear skins, practising

from 4 o'clock in

from 4 o'clock in the morning, go

live to the crowds along the mall at

9. live to the crowds along the mall at

9.15 for three hours or so. The real

worry is some may suffer from heat

exaugz. They are all wearing bear

skins so real worries the lads won't

be able to stand up. Some of the

music is an interesting choice, the

usual pomp and circumstance, some

unusual ones such as the themes unusual ones such as the themes from 'Pirates of the Caribbean'.

Oh my hearty! Kate has taken

advantage of the balmy weather to venture out?

Yes, not just venture out. This is

quite bizarre, she went down the

kings Road one of the most famous

shopping strips in the world, to see

IT girls and possible princes to be

with two detectives in plain

clothes, wearing a dress, looking

very thin, according to a lot of

people, size 8, wearing her people, size 8, wearing her ring

valued at 3 million pounds, she went

into a shop called Whistles to wear

the Kate Middleton blouse that she

wore in one of her engagement

photos. She had to get a new one.

Getting holiday outfits.

Maybe the other blouse is going to

madame Tussaud's. The parents have

been to the palace to meet the

grandparents, a very official

meeting. They haven't met yet?

No, it

No, it is odd, Kate didn't actually

meet the Queen, the grandmother

until five years into the romance.

So this is actually fairly fast for

the Middletons to meet the Queen,

they thought it was best they meet

them before the actual event on the

balcony, which will be the next time

they meet. They went to lunch

they meet. They went to lunch at Windsor Castle, spent an hour and a

half, and those who were there

half, and those who were there say it was a very warm atmosphere, lots

of lofter and the general discussion

was of course about the wedding but

also their natural love of horseracing.

You would, if you had nine years of

stories to catch up.

It would be a little awkward meeting

on the balcony for the first time.

Gee, she's tough, isn't she. If you have relatives in London and would like to see them on the tele - grab a pen. Tell them, This Sunday - you can join Monique Wright at Tower Bridge, on St Katherine's Way, just overlooking the water. Come down and say hi.

Go and have dinner first, because from 9 p.m.

from 9 p.m., Monique will be there,

it is when we are on air from 9 p.m.

To midnight, so the other end of the

day, United Kingdom time, same time

of the day of course for you at

home. But.

Different for us over there.

Greenwich meantime, the world's

round, that sort of stuff. Coming up - the misbehaving student tied-up by his teacher.

We'll get Kylie's views on that. Plus, mean girls. Megan Gale's showdown with two catty critics in a cafe. But next, what wedding?

The risquad called in as asylum

seekers set fire to the Villawood

detention centre, we are live when

Sunrise returns. When we need a car, we call Redspot car rentals. No funny business, just serious car rentals with no hidden extras. A rooftop protest by asylum seekers at Sydney's Villawood detention centre has escalated overnight. Buildings in the complex have been set on fire.

Fire crews were prevented from battling the flames because of safety concerns. Joining us now is Sunrise correspondent Edwina Bartholomew. How much damage has been caused?

Well, nine buildings have been

damaged, Kochie and they are still

smouldering as we speak, lots of spoke is in spoke smouldering as we speak, lots of

spoke in the air, it quickly

escalated. It start as a roof-top

protest yesterday morning, two

asylum seekers on the roof, it got

to 13 last night and they were

throwing roof tiles off and started

fires, matresses leaning up against

the building they were in quickly

caught alight and now, you can see

in front of me an entire row of

buildings have been destroyed.

Firies got here quickly around 11. Firies got here quickly around 11.30

last night but they weren't allowed

inside because the situation was

just too volatile. At one point, 100

detainees were rioting. There is

only 160 inside Villawood detention

centre and they considered it too

dangerous. The New South Wales

police couldn't react, it is an area

controlled by the federal police and

now they are in there, putting out

the flames and the situation is

under control, certainly you can't

hear sound of rioting at the moment.

The situation is still developing,

talk to you soon, let us know if anything happens.

Rioting because it is taking too

long to be processed and they are

frustrated. Keep your paperers when

with you when come here, help things

out. Ahead - safety shock. The budget airline forced to show why it should be allowed to keep flying. Plus -

# Saying yeaho

# Got an echo

# I want to celebrate and live A number of buildings at Sydney's Villawood detention centre have been badly damaged after a rooftop protest by asylum seekers ran out of control overnight. The fires were set by asylum seekers frustrated with delays in having their applications processed. The detainees are very angry because the Department of Immigration ignored their calls for them to come and negotiate with them. Because of security concerns fire crews are being forced to battle the flames from outside the perimeter fence. No-one has been injured by the fire.

There is live pictures of the scene

and you can see the damage. The Immigration Department says it will find those responsible for starting the fires.

And causing that very extensive

damage at Villawood detention centre

on the outskirts of Sydney, more soon. Newspapers have published a public apology from Sydney Airport to the thousands of passengers left stranded by Tuesday's security bungle. In the ad, airport chief executive Russell Balding admits letting people down and promises a full investigation. The airport is looking into claims someone tripped over a metal detector's power cord, pulling it out.

The blunder was only discovered when two armed police officers passed through without setting off the detector. Jetstar is demanding compensation after it was forced to cancel 15 flights. Victoria's top cop is under mounting pressure

with senior state government insiders rating his performance as disappointing.

News Limited is reporting they're concerned Commissioner Simon Overland has shown a lack of leadership. It follows a $100 million cost blowout to the force's new crime database and revelations problems with the existing system

may have contributed to seven murders by parole violators. I have faith in Simon Overland but it's been a testing week. There's no suggestion at this stage that Commissioner Overland is facing the sack. A tornado has devastated a small town in the United States. Storm chasers filmed these incredible pictures as the twister touched down in Missouri. The funnel cloud tore through the town of Bowling Green destroying homes and sheds. Authorities say no deaths or injuries were reported. It comes only days after dozens of tornadoes killed 45 people across the country's south.

The Titans have snuck under Cronulla's guard to sign consistent prop Luke Douglas for the next three years. Douglas will form a formidable front row partnership with veteran Luke Bailey, who's set to ink a new 2-year deal.

Well, I think since probably the

start of last year I knew I made my

decision to try to stay in the NRL

and win a premiership so that's my main focus. The Sharks will now go all out in their bid to retain Origin prop Kade Snowden.


South Sydney has re-signed John Sutton and Nathan Merritt for a further three seasons. St Kilda has recalled feisty defender Steven Baker along with Justin Koschitzke for tonight's crucial clash against Brisbane at the Gabba. Both teams are yet to register a win in the opening four rounds and Lions coach Michael Voss insists his side is close to breaking its duck. At Collingwood, ruckman Darren Jolly remains in doubt with a knee injury for Monday's Anzac Day clash against Essendon. WA's Taj Burrow will be surfing for survival when the Rip Curl Pro resumes today at Bells Beach. Burrow finished third in his opening round heat and has to battle it out in sudden death today. Big guns Kelly Slater, Mick Fanning and Joel Parkinson all got off to blistering starts and Stephanie Gilmore easily negotiated her opening round assignment.

# What you waiting for

# Oh

# A view of Brisbane through the Jetstar Skycam. Mostly fine and 27 degrees. You might remember Bethany Hamilton the young woman attacked by a shark when she was just 13. Bethany lost an arm in the attack. But she refused to let that stand in the way of her dream to become a pro surfer. Now her inspirational story has been made into a movie called 'Soul Surfer'.

When you come back from a loss, when

you beat the odds. And never say

never, you find a champion.

# Baby you're a champion

# 'Soul Surfer' is based on Bethany's book as well as interviews with her family. Bethany is in Australia for the Rip Curl Pro. She joins us from Bells Beach in Victoria. Bethany, we know you're passionate about surfing, how's the pro tour going?

The waves are

The waves are incredible right now

and I got a wildcard for this event

so I'm superstoked to be here and

compete. We haven't heard if the

girls are going to surf today but

hope fall because the waveerize going off.

Good luck. Tell us about the movie.

It is an incredible story, your book

is amazing. What did you first think

when you saw your story on film?

Yes, it was such a journey to get to

this point, making soul surfer was

incredible. My family helped me stay

tuned and I am really happy with how

it turns out. It comes out on May

26, I am superstoked for my Aussie

friend to see it, I am just loving it out here.

What is next for you? You are still

21 we can't believe it. What is next for you?

Um, just going to keep surfing and

being the best surfer that I can and

continue travelling and competeing

and going on surf tripwise Rip Curl

and just taking it one day at a time

because I am sure some incredible

opportunities will come up with this

film and all, so a pretty exciting

time of my life, I am just very

blessed in everything I do.

So lovely to talk to you, you are an

amazing young woman and all the best

and enjoy the waves at Bells.

Thank you, too too. 'Soul Surfer' opens in cinemas in June. People are saying the new TV show 'Detroit 1-8-7'

is one of the most realistic police dramas since 'NYPD Blue'. And for the star, Michael Imperioli, it's a big change from his former role in 'The Sopranos'. Our reporter James Tobin sat down with him to find out how he hade the transition. Like any big American city, there are heroes and there are villains and then there's the grey area in between.

For Detroit police officers like Detective Fitch it's all in a day's work.

Passengers is your best lead, you

want to keep your promise, find the

number on the phone. He's very, very

good at what he does, he is

particularly good at interrogation

and dealing with the criminal mind.

He has a lot of insight into the way killer's minds work. Michael Imperioli and the rest of the cast shoot the show on location in Detroit. That's the first difference between it and a lot of other cop shows. Another is the style it's shot in. What exactly is that shooting style all about?

It's a documentary style and it's

originally, the concept of the show,

the pilot was that it was a

documentary and there was a camera

crew following us and we had in the

original pilot we would talk to the

camera at points. And we reshot it

after the show got picked up, we

reshot it, parts of it, because we

felt in the long run, it would

really limit what stories we can

tell. Because you are not going to

let a documentary camera crew everywhere. From crime boss to crime fighting, it's a big change for Michael who is best known for his role in 'The Sopranos'.

Go once. Now sit down. Sit down. What exactly did it mean to your life?

As an actor, to be able to be on the

television show where television show where the character

evolves over time, not just be

expected to do the same thing week

after week and the stakes raising

year after year with these

characters. Up, it was a very, very

gratifying experience.

Does it seep into the

Does it seep into the psyche at the

time ? Do you take a little bit of

him away with you when you go home at night?

For the most part no, but once in a

while, yes. There would be times

when I could feel a bit of him

seeping ing, usually when I was angry. Here's a little scoop for you. When it comes to 'Detroit 1-8-7', Detective Fitch is going to have some emotional issues himself - just wait and see.

Officer down! Let's get some help!

Looks good, doesn't it. News is next. Then, airline safety shock. The budget airline that could lose its licence to fly. And, you just never know who's listening. Megan Gale's cafe showdown when we come back. If you want to keep your four-legged family member looking good and feeling great, I recommend Supercoat Casserole.

Well, this is what parents should

they want to get their kids into

show business and put them on the

Internet. 13-year-old Rebecca Black,

the song we all love to hate,

Friday, that video went viral on

YouTube, millions of hits and now,

because of the cyberbullying she's

gotten as a result of that, she's

had two death threats, one by phone,

one by e-mail, the police are taking

it very seriously, she is under

police protection, she is coping

with it. She said at first it made

her cry, now she is dealing with it

and hopefully a bit of living well

is the best revenge, she is said to

be making significant money from I

Ryan Seacrest is hoping to help

direct her career and 'Glee' are

doing a version on their show. Good

luck to Rebecca, a tough way to get launch. Moving on, and which famous Aussie mum has touched down in New York?

We can't get enough of her, Miranda

Kerr, of course, along with her

husband, Orlando bloom and their

little baby boy. What is remarkable

about it, the New York papers are so

impressed with doting dad, Orlando,

not only is he

not only is he constantly cradling

what a super, superfamily.

offended by Kochie's comments, when

you said Australians don't take

kindly. Of course the action are

inappropriate but while condemnic

the actions can we not ask

simultaneously why? What situation

is driving the people to the course of action?

We certainly will, we have got the

immigration spokesperson coming up

and we will put it to them. But a

lot of these people are there

because they have asked for refugee

status and we said you are not a

refugee so you got to go back.

We have the right to do that.

Yes, one of the buildings that was

targeted was housing people who have

been declared not refugees and they ron their way back.

They give refugees a bad name,

They give refugees a bad name, we should be so welcome wg legitimate

refugees, the illegitimate ones turf them out. 70/ them out.

70/30 agreeing with you but Michelle

does not, often people fleeing war

access to birth papers, your

comments may ineliteest and xenophobic.

You got into Indonesia, if you came

just be patient. We have a process,

it is what this country is about. Now, still to come on Sunrise this morning - Asylum seekers set fire to Sydney's Villawood facility in an explosive protest. We're live to the scene for the very latest. The budget airline that could be grounded ahead of the long weekend. This morning, what it means for passengers. The schoolboy allegedly strapped to a chair for misbehaving in class. The Queen meets the Middleton's for the first time ahead of next week's wedding. It's like a butcher shop and everyone is looking in the window going, "I like that one, that one's a bit old, that one's not as firm." Eamon Sullivan crowned this year's most eligible single bloke. Right across Australia, this is Sunrise on Seven. Now, live from Brekky Central, here's Kochie and Mel. Good morning, great to have your company. It's a busy news morning so let's get the very latest now with Nat. Buildings at Sydney's Villawood detention centre are in smouldering ruins this morning after an asylum seeker protest turned into a riot. Sunrise correspondent Edwina Bartholomew joins us with more from outside Villawood.

The situation now is that the riot

is under control. Firies have been

able to get in and put out most of

the fire but I will just get you to

have a look, on the roof of the

detention centre therefour asylum

oxygen bottle exploded. The Fouler

Complex is an area where the

refugees have been rejected, they

will not be let into Australia. They

are very frustrated. Took it out. At

one point, 100 detainees protesting,

only 160 in the section. The problem

was the jurz was the

Australian federal police so they

couldn't get in as quickly as they

liked. The riot squad were called

in, they are patrolling the area but

as I had, it is under control.

Thank you, Edwina. A South Australian MP has been charged with child pornography offences. Sunrise correspondent Amanda Bachmann joins us with more from Adelaide. Good morning, Amanda. What can you tell us?

Well, the identity is suppressed but

the MP was arrested at his home in

Adelaide's north eastern suburbs

yesterday and taken to the city

watch house and charged with four

childhood porn augoffences and

released on bail. It is part of an

ongoing investigation called project

dismate, it is believed that police

raided the MP's home earlier in the

week and they seized computers, CDs

and other evidence. What's happened has and other evidence. What's happened

has sent shock waves through the

local political scene. No-one is

commenting on either side of

politics but it comes as a time when

the state Labor government is

struggling with popularity and the

premier, Mike Rann is the most

unpopular in the polls. He has been

told of the charges but hasn't

commented. The MP is due in court

next month to face the charges, thanks. Prime Minister Julia Gillard has become the first foreign leader invited to visit Japan since the devastating earthquake and tsunami. Ms Gillard says the country has Australia's full support as it battles to recover. I'm absolutely confident it will rebuild stronger than before and Australia, as a good friend, will be working with Japan. Later today Ms Gillard will have an audience with the Emperor and Empress before talks with the Japanese Prime Minister. An Adelaide man abducted from his home yesterday has been found alive. Two men armed with a gun and a baseball bat shoved Phung Can So into a car boot in front of his family then sped off. He was found by police last night at Port Parham, north of the city. Mr Phong walked into a house near here. He is in a reasonable condition. Police found his car nearby but are still looking for his kidnappers. Phung Can So was due to face court today on drug charges.

Voss insists the winless Lions are capable of breaking their duck despite the absence of a host of key players including skipper Jonathan Brown. And I'm more than content with our efforts, that's why it's been a bit gut-wrenching we haven't been able to get the win on the board. The Saints are also chasing their first win and welcome back Justin Koschitzke and Steven Baker. Former Blues selector Laurie Daley has labelled Jamie Soward the obvious choice to play five-eighth for New South Wales this year. Interestingly, Daley is one of the selectors who has shunned Soward in the past

despite his sizzling form for the Dragons. But with Todd Carney out of the picture, battling personal demons,

Daley believes Soward's time has come to graduate to the Origin arena. Arsenal's Premier League title ambitions have taken a massive hit following a 3-3 draw with Tottenham at White Hart Lane this morning.

It was end-to-end stuff in an epic North London derby as Spurs battled back from a 2-goal deficit to earn a share of the points.

Arson Wenger will be a hunted man. At Stamford Bridge, reigning champions Chelsea thumped Birmingham 3-1

to close to within six points of leaders Manchester United.

Let's check win Grant Saurus with

the weather. The wonderful movie,

'Jurassic Park', the velociraptor

was a major feech were, the one that

chased the actors. Stephen Spielberg

took creative licence and made them

a fair bit bigger than real life.

This is a velociraptor, taking a

look at Waterfront City in

Docklands. They are smaller in real

life, and they are not as

intelligent as in the film, or the

general theory, in Winton, in

outback Queensland they found a vulaus outback Queensland they found a

velociraptor as big as the one in

the Stephen Spielberg films so it is

a recent discovery, they were. But

not as big as an apex predator, like

the Tyrannosaurus rex, the biggest

badest dude to roam the planet. This

fellow here had two mega strong rear

legs, a little down fall was the

fact he only had two tiny hands and

two fingers, which were useless

because they couldn't reach his

mouth. It is why they had such a big

head and jaw. These guys could eat

250 kilos of meet in one bite.

250 kilos of meet in one bite. So they were enormous. So when they

found, basically the only, the

biggest intact skeleton that has

been found of a Tyrannosaurus rex is

85% intact. It took 30,000 hours to

dig that bad boy out and discover

what we know now as the

what we know now as the TeRex Sunrise Weather brought to you by Beacon Lighting. Right now, buy two items from their pendants, lamps or exteriors ranges and you'll get your second item half price.

so what chance would you have

against a T. Rex and his 60 teeth

and the ability to eat 250 kilos in

one bite? None, other than the fact

if you stood still, he wouldn't see

you and that was the only thing man

had to use to survive against him,

which of course, we weren't, because

we weren't existing then but that is

a minor point. See you in in half an


You mentioned the Winton dig, one of

the biggest in the world in terms of

dinosaurs. It is extraordinary.

You been there? I reckon we got to

go there for the weather. The only

recorded stampede in the world, 30 recorded stampede in the world,

30,000 footprints of dinosaurs

running this way and bolting other

way and big footprint in a chase, it

is unbelievable. Buildings at Sydney's Villawood Immigration Detention Centre have been destroyed by fire overnight. Detainees have run riot in the grounds. We're joined from outside the centre by Immigration Department spokesman Sandy Logan. Sandy, how many buildings have been destroyed?

Well, it looks, Kochie, with

daybreak here we've got nine

structures definitely destroyed. We

have still got some fires that fire

and rescue New South Wales members

are extinguishing. It has been a

tough night for all the staff

involved and also the excellent work

of New South Wales police and the firefighters. Absolutely

The annoying thing about this, it

givers legitimate refugees a bad

name like this in the eyes of the

public. Tell us about detainees

involved. These are ones we rejected

and want to send back?

Not entirely, some may well be,

Kochie, at this stage, identifying

around 100 who were involved in the

rioting overnight, we are still in

that investigationry stage but some

would have been on a negative

pathway and rejected. But it is a

sad fact and reality

sad fact and reality of how we have

to deal with decisions around

protection claims. Some people will

succeed and some won't.

The ones that don't succeed are not

legitimate refugees, they could be

criminals, they could be anyone for

all we know. We have every right to

put them through this process and

decide. What is going to happen to

those who have caused the

destruction? Of course there will be

a police investigation into the

affair overnight and there

disturbens and the fires and the

vandalism caused. Just as we are

undertaking a similar investigation

on Christmas Island, there may well

be, it is not for me to speculate,

there could be charges arising from

the police investigation.

Okay, Sandy, it is pretty sad when

this sort of stuff happens, appreciate your team.

appreciate your team time. One of Australia's major airlines is at risk of losing its licence to fly on the eve of the Easter holiday weekend. Cut price carrier Tiger Airways has been issued a 'show cause' notice by the airline safety regulator CASA. News Limited reports it follows problems with pilot training, maintenance and flight operations. The last time this type of warning was issued was in 2001 to Ansett. Aviation expert Neil Hansford joins us now. Good morning. What does a 'show cause' notice mean and how serious is it?

It is only issued when there is

serious and imminute po-- imminent

potential to safety. It means they

have tried to work with management

to come up and meet the Australian

safety regulations and it is not

getting there so it is the prekrbser

to get -- precursor to get a removal

of the air operators certificate.

How long could it have been building

up before the show cause was issued?

Have people's lives been in danger?

It could have been building frup 12

months, there is changes in the

management of Tiger, it is an

overseas owned airline, you can't

get the same standards as Qantas and

Jetstar with an Australian culture

of safety.

Cut price we get means you might be

a bit more squashed thore record of

being on time might not be as good,

we get that but safety, would you fly with them?

No. Bhut the other No. Bhut the

No. Bhut the but aother point we

have low-fares airlines in Australia

but not low safety with Qantas and virgin.

How did it get to this point?

They have tried to their hardest to

get to it and they have done what

they have to be done and the last

time it was done was Ansett in 2001

when the fleet was grounded and

there was major disruption. Today,

4,000 people would be looking for alternative ways to fly.

Qantas, facing potential

Qantas, facing potential strike

action over pay and conditions, how

much of a disruption could it have?

I wouldn't have thought it would

happen over. Easter, Qantas has an

ongoing reorieritation of its labour

force and there is responsibility

amongst the engineers and pilots,

although there is sword rattling, I

don't believe they would do it to

the Australian travelling public.

We can only hope. Thank you. A West Australian teacher is being investigated for allegedly tying a 5-year-old boy to a chair. Another teacher at the Northam school made a report last week. Justin Webb was allegedly tied to a chair for a few minutes for being disruptive. Justin spoke to reporter Reece Whitby.

I just was sitting on that and

I just was sitting on that and after I was going, and after that they

just done that. Justin's mum said he should have been sent to the office instead. So how should teachers discipline kids? And where do principals fit in? Norm Hart is from the Primary Principals Association. Good morning to you. Should teachers deal with naughty kids in class? Or should they just be sent straight to the principal?

As this kid's mum suggested?

Good morning, Kochie, the answer is

yes and no, of course. Teachers,

whatever they do, immediately after

kids behave in inappropriate ways

has a bearing on how the situation

plays out and how well the child

learns to behave in more appropriate

ways. So, whatever they do is really

dealing with the situation. But of

course, principals want to know what

is happening in every primary school

and want to be involved in these

conversations as well. In terms of

supporting the teacher and helping

the child to learn, let's get the

principal involved early.

Yes, norm, do teachers have sort of

guidelines in terms of discipline?

How to discipline kids and sort of

does it include tying them to a


It certainly doesn't include tying

them to a chair, there are

guidelines in every school,

behaviour plans and matchment

behaviour plans and

behaviour plans and management plans

in some places and those guidelines

are adhered to. But it is about

teaching children better ways to

behave and there needs to behave and there needs

behave and there needs to be a

partnership between the parents,

principal and child, including the

child so when they behave in

inappropriate ways there will be

certain consequences that will be implemented consistently.

What is the next step in all this?

Well, I think the next step is to,

when a child is behaving in a way

that is unacceptable in

that is unacceptable in the classroom is for the parents, the

carers, the teacher and the

principal to include the child in a plan for

plan for improvement.

plan for improvement.. Thank you for

your time, Norm. With just over a week until Prince William and Kate Middleton say "I do" William's grandparents have been meeting the bride's parents. With more, we're joined by Sunrise London correspondent Martin Frizell. This was the first time the Queen met Michael and Carole, isn't it?

Yes, Mel, and they shouldn't get

used to too many of the meeting

because the Queen does not do

in-laws very much at all. Bizarrely

he she didn't meet them for lunch,

the next chance would be on the balcony at Buckingham Palace after

the wedding so thank goodness they

got the introducks outside of the

way. They spent an hour and a half

at Windsor Castle where the Queen

spends Easter. Lots of laughter,

talked about the arrangements of the

day and also their mutual love of horseracing.

I wond were if they bought her an

The royals do a bit of waiting. All

the best from us here at

the best from us here at Sunrise, talk to you soon. Modelling can be a tough game but Megan Gale's proved she's not one to take criticism sitting down. She walked into a city cafe for lunch and overheard two girls commenting on her new title of Most Beautiful Woman by 'Who' magazine. Gale quickly took to Twitter giving a firsthand account of what was unfolding. First the star was in shock, unsure of what to say, Tweeting to her 20,000 strong followers - After 14 minutes the model had had enough, telling the girls who were sitting behind her - According to Gale, the girls were quick to back-pedal.

The girls who have respond said with

a public apology but point out it is

the model who went public with

tweets and she craves public attention.

She was defending herself and did it

with complete class. It is one of

those things like cyberbullying you

don't say it to the person's face.

All Megan did was walked up and said

be careful what you are saying

because you never know who is

around. I think it is great she

stood up for herself.

Also, when you are public figure you

got to expect some of those things,

people have different opinions.

Of course, but you know, you have to

have thick skin and she is a model

but she didn't nominate herself to

be in the 'Who' weekly most

beautiful, they chose her so I

beautiful, they chose her so I think it is a bit different than she was

putting e herself up for it. But at

the same time, I think there are a

lot of people who get away with

being really nasty because they

don't know the person or have ever

met the person. It is very different

to say something to someone's face

versus online or in a cafe.

And online is sort of like, the new

version of the toilet wall. Allan

Pease is an old mate of Did Megan handle it the right way? Sunrise.

Well the thing about handling

anybody who bad mouths you, talks

bough you badly, do it in private.

If you do it publicly, you are in a

situation you are fighting with pigs

and then you get covered with mud.

She would have been better to ignore

it. She is a model and inmodel's job

is look at me, I am representing the

beautiful people of society, if you

are going to be in that position you

will cop a lot of flack, but

privately is better than publicism

She did have the guts to confront

them in a nice way?

Everyone who reads the story said

you know somebody has talked about

you behind your back and you want to

get stuffed is the bottom line but

when you come head on, everything

goes down hill and it goes from bad

to worse. The first rule, where

somebody is bad mouthing you tackle

it head on, if you don't tackle it,

things will always go from bad to

worse mism

Don't let the problem fester, avoid

sinking to their level and make the

first move, really good suggestions.

Thank you, Alan, good to see you,
