Shocking pictures have exposed a sexually explicit ‘ratings’ system given to young girls at a troubled high school, with the degrading charts in full display of students in the hallway.
Melbourne’s Balwyn High School has been accused of tolerating a toxic environment that has seen a 13-year-old girls harassed with d*** pic texts, boys allegedly masturbating openly in class and making lists of girls based on their looks.
Now photos have emerged of the explicit ratings that have been graffitied near the girls’ lockers and left in open view of the whole student body.
Photos have emerged of the obscene graffiti placed near the girls’ lockers at a Melbourne high school that has faced mounting accusations of allowing a ‘toxic’ environment
One photo shows a grid with tallies for c**k, a**, t*ts, pubes – and personality.
Another is a combined ranking of the schoolgirls’ bottom, breasts and face.
In response to the photos, Victoria’s Education Department said that ‘Balwyn High School is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all students and acts immediately to address allegations or incidents of bullying or harassment’.
The school’s policy is to regularly review school property and remove graffiti.

It was revealed last week a 13-year-old girl, then in Year 8, was sent texts harassing her with the threat of unsolicited d*** pics organised by one of her classmates, who only received a week suspension.
Earlier this month allegations became public that boys masturbated in front of girls while in class and sometimes threatened girls with rape as a ‘joke’.
The school responded to the claims, made in an anonymous survey from 2021, that the issues had been handled ‘appropriately and professionally’.
However, a dad with two children at the school, who did not wish to be named, told Daily Mail Australia little had changed there in the past year.
Balwyn High School, in Melbourne’s east, faces continuing allegations that boys at the school engage in serious sexual misconduct even in class where they ‘crawl on the floor’ and make obscene gestures
He rejected the high school’s claims it has addressed serious sexual misbehaviour and said the toxic culture continues because only ‘tokenistic’ punishments are handed out.
The father said that despite Victoria’s education department claiming two weeks ago it had dealt with issues ‘appropriately and professionally’, sexual misconduct was still rife at the school.
‘It’s a very toxic environment that is very, very widespread,’ he told Daily Mail Australia.
‘I don’t think I have met a single one of my daughter’s friends who doesn’t have similar stories.’
He said his daughter is constantly ambushed with creepy messages on social media, with one teen being particularly persistent.
This message was sent to a 13-year-old schoolgirl, who did not accept but found out later it had been organised by a classmate, who only received a week’s suspension for the act
The dad said his daughter had been mercilessly harassed and bullied while she was in Year 7 and 8, with boys calling her abusive names such as ‘sl*t’, ‘wh**e’ and ‘b**ch’.
He alleged the behaviour went beyond the playground, with boys ‘crawling on the floor’ during class while shouting and making obscene gestures to his daughter in full view of teachers, who he claimed did nothing.
In 2019 his daughter, who was 13 at the time, had to block an anonymous account trying to send her unsolicited d**k pics, which was the culmination of harassment she was receiving from one particular boy.
The daughter told Daily Mail Australia she confronted her classmate over the message, who admitted organising it because ‘he thought it was very funny’.

When she complained to the school’s student support team, she said she was accused of being a ‘snitch’ by the wider student body.
‘Most of the male students made comments to this effect,’ she said.
Her father described the classmates’ furious reaction as ‘retaliation’ and said the ‘mob’ reaction was a reason bad behaviour was normalised at the school.
The dad said he repeatedly raised the matter with the school before he was eventually granted a meeting with staff, who handed him a hand-written apology from the boy concerned.
‘(The teacher) said ‘he’s very contrite, he’s very sorry’,’ the dad said.
‘Literally as I was walking out of the office my daughter sends me a message on Instagram that he is bragging about what he was doing.’
The boy only received a one-week suspension.
Under Victorian law, it is an offence to use a carriage service in ‘a menacing, harassing or offensive’ manner.

Victoria’s education department said the matter had been dealt with in an ‘appropriate manner’.
‘The health and safety of our students is the top priority for all schools and any allegations regarding student wellbeing are taken seriously and managed appropriately,’ a department spokesperson said.
‘The department is aware of an incident involving Balwyn High School students in 2019. At the time, appropriate disciplinary action was taken to address student behaviour and wellbeing supports were made available.’
The father escalated his complaints to Victoria’s education department but he said he received only a ‘tokenistic’ response.
Informally, he was told that two detectives spoke to the boy.
The girl said most of her male classmates called her a ‘snitch’ with her father describing it as retaliation that ‘normalises’ bad behaviour in the school
‘I just don’t understand how we think this is acceptable in a government school.
‘The evidence would suggest the education programs don’t do anything.
‘When I went to school, any one of those behaviours would have seen me in the principal’s office.
‘The second time it would be suspension and the third time I would have been expelled from the school.
‘All they have to do is basically expel a few.
‘Make it very public that their behaviour is not to tolerated and the problem goes away.’
