Elite Jewish boys’ school once at the centre of sex abuse claims is probed over bullying and harassment of staff

Daily Mail


An elite Jewish boy’s school notorious for child sex abuse is being investigated over accusations of widespread bullying and harassment of staff.

Yeshivah College, in Melbourne’s seafront suburb of St Kilda East, was thrown into the spotlight last year after a series of hearings at the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

Fresh allegations have now come to light that staff at the school, and its sister school Beth Rivkah College, have been subject to continued bullying and harassment from senior figures, reports Herald Sun.

The two schools are being probed by Worksafe Victoria after a junior teacher lodged complaints.
The schools have this week been issued an ‘improvement notice’ over their failure to force staff to undergo specific bullying training.

Several teachers are understood to have left the school and others have had their hours cut.
