Word on the Street: 17 staff to leave Trinity Grammar at the end of the year
WORD ON THE STREET
17 staff will be leaving Trinity Grammar at the end of the year, after a difficult year for the private boys school in Kew.
Caller Greg told Tom Elliott many who were leaving were senior staff members.
The school made headlines earlier this year for sacking and then reinstating deputy principal Rohan Brown after he cut a student’s hair.
Students and parents passionately protested his sacking.
Headmaster Phil de Young denied there was a toxic culture at the elite private school despite 10 per cent of staff leaving at the end of the year.
He confirmed 17 out of 150 staff have decided to move on for a range of reasons.
“No one has come along and told me they were leaving because of a toxic culture,” he told Tom Elliott.
