St Rita's College Clayfield rocked by cheating scandal

Oct 23, 2009

From Tanya Chilcott's article in Courier-Mail:

A leading Brisbane private girls' school has been rocked by a cheating scandal after a group of students was caught just weeks before graduation.

St Rita's College principal Dale Morrow said the incident, the first of its kind in her eight years at the Clayfield school, had been "a very difficult" time for all involved.....

....It is understood one girl attained the answers from a teacher's computer and passed them on.

"They were all suspended for three days and then I interviewed all parents and all girls twice," Mrs Morrow said.

"We talked about what the consequences would be and the students, parents and myself agreed on how they could contribute back to the community and what the consequences were – and they are very severe consequences.

"The other girls are entitled to fair and equitable treatment and we don't tolerate cheating."

But she said it was important to remember that everyone could make a mistake and those mistakes should not be made to last a lifetime.
