Victorian Premier Jacinta Allan says she is “devastated” by the “misogynistic” and “utterly unacceptable” behaviour of students at a Melbourne private boys School. 

Three male students at Yarra Valley Grammar in Ringwood in Melbourne’s east have been suspended after compiling a highly offensive spreadsheet rating the appearance of female students at the school. 

The school’s principal,  Mark Merry, told the ABC the sheet had a list of names and used terms such as “wifeys” and “cuties” to describe the girls and also used the term “unrapeable”. 

“The behaviour that’s been reported today at the school in Ringwood is misogynist, it’s disgraceful, it’s disgusting and it’s utterly unacceptable,” the Premier. 

“This pattern of violence against women, not only does the act of violence have to stop but [also] these displays of disrespecting women. It’s just disgraceful.”

Mr Merry said the school had contacted the police over the matter.
