It comes after police let boys, from an unnamed secondary school, off with warnings after they performed lewd acts on drunk girls and posted pictures online.
Secondary Principals’ Association executive member Patrick Walsh told ONE News this type of exploitative behaviour was on the rise.
“We conducted a survey with secondary schools on cyber bullying and the misuse of social media. There is a problem that needs to be addressed.
“They are struggling with it.”
Walsh also pointed to the examples of recent videos posted online involving students fighting from De La Salle College and Manurewa High School.
The Secondary Principals’ Association is meeting with New Zealand Police at 5pm today to “develop protocols between police and secondary schools to manage these incidents”.
A police spokesperson said they are looking to work more closely in partnership with the association “to ensure that students in schools are supported to be safe and feel safe”.
