A teacher has resigned from an elite Catholic boys school in Sydney amid claims she had sex with at least two Year 12 boys last year.
St Aloysius’ College confirmed that the teacher, who taught drama and English and is aged in her late 20s, had left the school after an internal investigation into “inappropriate contact”, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.
The rector of St Aloysius, Peter Hosking, declined to say how many students were involved but said the Jesuit school was taking the matter very seriously and had written to parents.
The two boys understood to have had sex with the teacher were over the age of 16 at the time but the alleged acts still breached child protection legislation as well as school rules because of the teacher-student relationship.
