A VICTORIAN school is blaming a typo for accidentally sending its students a link to pornography website.

Peninsula Grammar, on the Mornington Peninsula, says a missing letter in a booking link sent to secondary students about a breakfast event meant those who clicked on it were redirected to “an inappropriate adult website”.

The school says it started deleting the emails, sent on Tuesday, from students’ accounts as soon as it became aware of the mistake.

“At the same time we emailed all students requesting that they do not click on the link,” Peninsula Grammar Principal Stuart Johnston said in a statement on Wednesday.

“We realise the gravity of this error and are deeply remorseful.

“We are extremely upset that we may have exposed our students to a website of this nature as it is clearly not in line with our school values.”

Mr Johnston also said the school was investigating the incident and would look at whether Victoria’s Child Safe Standards were breached.

Peninsula Grammar had been trying to promote its annual Brownlow Breakfast, which Seven News presenter Peter Mitchell is hosting later this month.
