Teachers' pics 'payback for prank'
A WARWICK State High School student has revealed the full story behind the raunchy photos of two teachers that were posted on Facebook.
The shots of teachers Ann Kerr and Helen Casey dressed as schoolgirls and suggestively posing on a bathroom vanity were nothing more than a joke, the student revealed.
Screenshots of Facebook posts provided by the anonymous student showed the teachers were pulling a revenge prank on two Year 12 students who arrived at an 18th birthday party in costume, pretending to be the two teachers.
A Facebook photo taken from the party shows two girls dressed as, according to the caption, “Ms Cougar Kerr & Ms Cougar Casey”.
A picture comment of “grow up!!!” was met with a reply of “thats seriously wat they went as”.
Another Facebook status update from one of the girls who originally dressed as one of the teachers showed that the teachers wore the schoolgirl outfits as a payback and were pretending to be the two female students.
One of the students who dressed as the teachers posted a link to the Warwick Daily News’ story on her Facebook, claiming it was the “funniest s*** ever”.
The girl confirmed that both teachers were dressed up for a party and were trying to get back at the students for their “cougar” costumes.
All of the 26 Facebook replies were from students who found the entire situation to be hilarious, except for one comment expressing concern about the teacher’s jobs.
The student who supplied the Facebook images said: “The whole thing was a joke. But I agree, it’s been taken too far.”
The photos and Education Queensland’s subsequent investigation has made headlines in both national and international media organisations, including America and New Zealand.
Education Queensland Darling Downs and South West regional director Greg Dickman said the issue was still under investigation and the two teachers have not been suspended as inquiries take place.
