Students plan 'logout' over alleged party for convicted teacher

Students at St. John Catholic High School in Perth have organized a planned walkout for Tuesday following reports of a party held for a now-convicted former teacher at the school.

The former teacher, Jeff Peters, pleaded guilty on April 29 to sexual assault of one student and sexual exploitation of a second student. Peters, who was charged in 2019 and was still a teacher at the time of the offences, was sentenced to three and a half years in prison.

Reports have been circulating on social media of a party hosted by two teachers at St. John’s prior to Peters pleading guilty. The alleged party was billed as a “going away party,” according to multiple people who have spoken to The Recorder and Times.

The alleged party, held at a cottage in April, is alleged to have had around eight to 10 people in attendance, said one source. None of the sources who spoke to The Recorder and Times claimed to have first-hand knowledge of the alleged party.

Because of the reported teacher-hosted party, students attending the Perth school began circulating posts online about a walkout – or “logout” due to the nature of classes being virtual – in protest of alleged teacher involvement.  (more...)
