Students at an elite private boys school are protesting today over the sacking of their long-standing deputy principal who was fired for giving a student a haircut before his school photo.

David Warner receives emphatic Darren Lehmann backing

  David Warner receives emphatic Darren Lehmann backing Darren Lehmann was unequivocal in his support for under-fire Australia vice-captain David Warner following his spat with Quinton de Kock. Australia resoundingly defeated South Africa in the first Test in Durban, but the match has been somewhat marred by unsavoury incidents including a staircase altercation between Warner and De Kock.The pair clashed when the players left the field for tea on day four at Kingsmead, before footage on South African television appeared to show Warner being separated from De Kock.

While there’s still a lot of debate on whether or not the death penalty is an acceptable punishment for any sort of crime , we can all look at some ancient laws—and their punishments —and agree that they’re a bit too harsh.

The punishment given to Steve Smith and David Warner for premeditated cheating, does not fit the crime , says cricket legend Shane Warne.

"As a result, the School Council was of the view that Mr Brown’s leadership position at the school was no longer tenable," the statement said.

But students have refused to let their much-loved teacher go quietly.

The 2018 student school leaders have urged all students to wear casual clothes with brown tape around their wrist today to show their support for Mr Brown.

"We are utterly hurt, angry and disappointed with the sacking of Mr Brown," the student group said in a statement.

"To show how inseparable Brownie is from our community, every boy from Year 7-12 has been encouraged to wear brown tape of their wrist."

Students began arriving at the school today, with tape around their arms.

Some students could be seen wearing an open-collared shirt, instead of a tie.

"We're all pretty shocked about his dismissal," student Toby Yates told Today from outside the school this morning.

"He was only upholding the school values and he’s cut other people’s hair in the past," student Anthony Apos said.

"We all think the punishment doesn’t fit the crime."

The student who received the haircut has not returned to school because of intensive bullying.

Earlier this week, a protest unfolded at lunchtime when students shouted "Brownie, Brownie, return Brownie." An online petition for him to return has received well over 1000 signatures.

Student Sam Carroll said Mr Brown was the "best thing that ever happened to the school".

"Everyone is feeling remorseful for him because he is a really good person," he said.

Mr Brown has said he still bleeds the school's colours - green and gold - and hopes to one day return to teaching.
