A Catholic boys school has suspended a teacher after he hypnotised students and allegedly asked one boy to touch himself.

The incident occurred at Mazenod College in Mulgrave and is now at the centre of a police investigation.

The school’s principal, Father Christian Fini, revealed in a letter to parents on Monday that “a teacher was using hypnosis techniques on students”.

He said the school was speaking to year 10 and 11 students and their families.

“The matter continues to be investigated by authorities beyond the school community,” he said.
