The Daily Telegraph 20 September 2014
Teachers say that last year there were five times as many reports of students sending unwanted suxually explicit photos to classmates than in 2012.
A report by the Department of Education says there were just 10 incidents reported in 2012, but the number soared to 54 last year.
In one incident at a southwest Sydney school in 2012, a Year 9 girl uploaded a naked image of herself on a website.
A female student from another school saw the image, took a photo of it, and sent it to another student — who sent it to everyone in her mobile phone contacts.
In a 2013 incident in the New England region, a teacher overheard male students talking about “inappropriate” photos being sent by a female student. Police were called to the school after it was discovered the girl had “multiple, inappropriate photographs of unknown males” in her phone.
