Exclusive Jewish school Yeshivah College issued anti-bullying order by Worksafe

 

EXCLUSIVE Jewish school Yeshivah College is under investigation amid claims of ongoing bullying and harassment of staff.

The school came under fire during lengthy hearings at the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse over claims abuse victims were threatened and intimidated.

Now allegations have surfaced of persistent and ongoing bullying and harassment of staff at the college, and its sister school Beth Rivkah College, by senior figures.

Worksafe Victoria has been probing the schools, run by the Yeshiva Centre, for several weeks after a complaint was made by a junior teacher.

This week the schools were issued with an “improvement notice” over their failure to force stuff to undergo specific training in relation to bullying.

The schools have been ordered to ensure the training has been completed by December.

It is understood several teachers have left the schools this year, while some have had their hours cut.

Others are fearful of speaking out against the school’s administration, sources say.
