In April 1997, Miss Cullen intervened when she saw Andy and Donna fighting in the school playground and when she tried to take Andy to see the headmistress, he lashed out at her. Andy was temporarily excluded and promised to change his behaviour. However, just weeks later, Andy caused trouble for Miss Cullen again when he broke the class's new computer in a fit of rage. Following this incident, numerous parents, lead by Donna's Mother, Viv Windsor campaigned for Andy to be removed from the school permanently. However, despite Andy's behaviour, Miss Cullen stood up for Andy's right to receive an education.
