Well, since it’s a Catholic school I’m sure they’ll just quietly remove the statue and ship it off to be displayed at another school in a different district.
A new statue at a Catholic school in Adelaide has been covered up and will be remodelled over issues with it being “potentially suggestive”.
The statue of St Martin de Porres at Blackfriars Priory was unveiled recently and depicts the saint handing a loaf of bread to a young boy.
However, the unfortunate placement of the bread raised other connotations and the school apologised for any concerns the design may have caused.
