A student at a Catholic boys’ high school was expelled after using artificial intelligence to create graphic images of a female teacher.

A 15-year-old from Salesian College in Chadstone, in Melbourne’s southeast, was expelled in May for creating explicit images using an artificial intelligence app.

The school immediately launched an investigation into the matter and took steps to expel the student.

Salesian College continues to provide support to the teacher concerned and says it has not received any complaints from parents.

However, some parents told the Herald Sun they were shocked and angry to learn of the student’s horrific actions.

“It’s very disheartening that something like this happened and we feel sorry for the teacher involved,” said one parent.

Another parent described artificial intelligence as “bad” and expressed concern about the use of the technology in these types of situations.

The incident comes days after leading consent activist Chanel Contos called on all Australian high school students to take porn literacy classes.

Ms Contos believes the rate of young teenagers using explicit material is a “public health issue”.

The activist said the “next step” for middle grades would be for school principals to talk about the dangers pornography poses to students.

In February, over 100 private videos and photos of underage students were published on social media.

The footage and photos came from public and private schools and were shared on several Instagram accounts without the students’ consent.

The plague of this type of activities was the situation when last year’s students were caught posting fabricated pornographic photos of teachers on social media, as well as filming arguments in the classroom due to the escalation of hatred towards teachers.
