Police Investigating Child Porn Ring At Melbourne School
Police are investigating a pornography ring at a Melbourne Private school which involved boys sharing explicit images of young naked girls.
A 16-year-old male student at St Michael’s Grammar School is believed to have created a dropbox folder which contained photos of seven girls from the St Kilda school.
The folder was accessed by other male students, who are believed to be in years 10 and 11.
It follows a string of recent scandals involving young male students circulating explicit and offensive content about girls on social media.
A Victoria Police spokeswoman confirmed the allegations were being investigated by detectives from Moorabbin SOCIT after receiving a report of "inappropriate images being distributed by students".
Head of school Simon Gipson said a student reported the incident to the school, and it had immediately referred the allegations to police.
"While we cannot comment on action taken, we continue to make all decisions according to our behavioural expectations framework, which is based on our core values of dignity, respect, care and compassion," he said.
He warned the school would "apply the most severe consequences" if police identified a breach of these expectations.
