An elite school is facing a scandal after explicit images of female students were shared online, leading to the arrest of a teenager.

Police are investigating after dozens of girls at Bacchus Marsh Grammar, northwest of Melbourne, reported that fake nude images generated using artificial intelligence had been created and shared on social media.

Up to 50 students in grades 9 to 12 were affected by the graphic images shared on Instagram and Snapchat.

The school confirmed on Tuesday that the girls’ faces were used to create the nude photos.

A teenager was arrested in connection with the incident, but Victoria Police confirmed he was at large pending further investigations.

“Officers were advised that a number of images were sent to an individual in the Melton area via an online platform on Friday 7 June,” a police statement said. “Police have arrested a teenager in connection with the distribution of explicit images online. He has been released pending further investigation.”

Police are still investigating the incident, while school principal Andrew Neal said the faces of the girls involved were taken from social media before being manipulated.

He described the incident as “obscene”.

“It’s horrific. It’s something that touches students’ hearts, especially girls of this age,” Neal said, according to ABC.

“They should be able to learn and go about their business without such nonsense.”

Mr Neal said the school is currently working with police to have the images removed.

They are also working to find the person responsible for publishing the images.

Mr Neal said that while police believe the person responsible is at the school, they have not ruled out other possibilities.

Police confirmed that investigations into the incident were ongoing.

The school was only made aware of the images on Monday and said the matter was being taken “very seriously”.

“The well-being of our students and their families is our top priority,” the school said in a statement.

Bacchus Marsh Grammar School is offering support to affected students and their families. Mr Neal said the incident was not representative of the school community.

He said the behavior must be punished “as decisively as possible.”
