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.

"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.

  Star bowler Rabada banned for rest of SA-Australia series <p>The decision by the International Cricket Council was announced just hours after Rabada was the star of the show in the second test at St. George's Park.</p>Rabada's first offense, of intentionally bumping into Australia captain Steve Smith after dismissing him in the first innings, earned the young quick three demerit points and took him over a disciplinary threshold.

"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.
