The principal and the president of the board at St. Michael’s College School have resigned – days after allegations of assault and sexual assault by students at the private all-boys institution came to light.
The Toronto school says principal Greg Reeves and board president Father Jefferson Thompson have stepped down – so the school can move forward “without distractions.”
The school has been criticized for not promptly reporting the alleged incidents to police – who announced sex-related charges against six students earlier this week – in connection with an alleged sexual assault.
The force is now investigating a total of six incidents at the Catholic school.
The school says both Reeves and Thompson want to allow the school to focus on healing and change – after the “horrific” incidents were revealed.
