On the last school day before Christmas holidays, a jobsworth school director canceled a planned school trip to Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral, because ten of the 23 students in the class are Muslims - and he was afraid they might cause damage to the church and its crosses.
The vocational school in Mariahilf was winding down, and preparing for their Christmas break. The teacher of a class with 23 students carefully planned a school trip to visit Vienna's central St. Stephen's cathedral, so that the students could enjoy looking at the decorations, Christmas market and the beautiful interior of the church which is very popular with thousands of tourists every day.
An un-named vice-principal of the school had other plans, however. He informed the teacher that the school trip was canceled, because ten of the 23 students were Muslim, and therefore he was worried that they might misbehave, and tear down the crosses inside the Gothic cathedral.
