Brisbane, Dec 20 (ANI): A former Queensland teacher has been banned from reapplying for teaching registration for at least a year after he was found misbehaving with his students.
According to evidence presented to a tribunal, David Doherty, of Wondal told Year Three students they should "f--- off and go home", reports the Brisbane Times.
The 49-year-old was also under scrutiny for snapping a Year Seven girl's bra strap and joking about a Year Nine boy's sexuality.The incidents were among nine cases cited by the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal last month when it banned Doherty from reapplying for teaching registration for at least a year.
Doherty, who had been employed by Education Queensland until his resignation in October 2007, was conducting a physical education class for Year Three students when one of the incidents occurred.
"During the lesson, one of the students was physically bullied by the other students and this incident required management by Mr Doherty," the tribunal said in a written decision, published last week.
"At the end of the class, Mr Doherty said to the class words to the effect that they were 'little shits' and to 'f--- off and go home'," wrote the tribunal.
In another incident referred to by the tribunal, Doherty approached a Year Seven girl from behind and pulled on her bra strap while in the presence of a student's parent. (ANI)
