On Tuesday parents were told about the investigation by Aquinas College principal Robert Henderson, who said he wanted to address ‘informal’ communication about what was happening.

‘As this matter is the subject of ongoing external review, and in the interest of ensuring the privacy of those involved, it is not appropriate to comment,’ he said.

‘However, I can confirm that immediately upon becoming aware of the matter, all required protocols were enacted and the college referred the matter to the relevant authorities.’

Parents were assured that students’ safety was of ‘utmost importance’.

He also stated that there were no allegations involving any current staff member. 

‘The college understands that allegations of any nature that may affect its students can cause concern within the community and assures parents, students and staff,’ Mr Henderson wrote.

‘The college remains committed to maintaining a safe and supportive learning environment for all students.’

It is not the first time the school has been hit with a sexting scandal.

In 2022 a teacher was sacked for ‘accidentally’ sending an explicit image to students.

A casual contract teacher at Aquinas College air dropped the image to Year 8 students.

The explicit image is understood to have been unintentionally sent along with other images relating to an assignment. 

It was not reported what the image contained.

Founded in the 1930s, Aquinas is one of WA’s oldest boys’ colleges and has around 1,100 students.
