Olivia Aloisi, 18, was shocked to discover a photograph of her in Mary MacKillop College’s yearbook had been digitally edited, which the assistant principal said was done for “marketing reasons”.
A pupil was furious after her Australian Catholic school Photoshopped her cleavage in a yearbook photo.
Olivia Aloisi was shocked to discover that a photo of herself in her school yearbook had been digitally edited to alter the appearance of her breasts and contacted Mary MacKillop College in Brisbane to inquire as to why.
She claims the school told her it was for “marketing reasons”.
The 18-year-old, who graduated last year, told dem courier post : “I went to the deputy director at the time and said, ‘That’s not okay’.
“And she basically said, ‘Well, you’re standing in the front row and you’re wearing a low-cut dress — it’s just not appropriate if we’re going to use this photo as marketing material for the school.'”
“I felt like someone at school should have spoken to me before posting the photoshopped and unedited photo for the entire class – everyone could tell, but at least there would have been some sort of warning.”
Ms. Aloisi first became aware of Photoshop when someone who wasn’t even a close friend told her about it. She said she was “embarrassed” for telling her.
Brisbane Catholic Education has been contacted for comment.
Just last month, students claimed the Catholic school asked them to submit photos of their dresses for approval ahead of this year’s prom.
They had issued a rigorous booklet outlining the dresses they were required to adhere to and providing photographic evidence of appropriate and inappropriate dress.
Some of the banned outfits included low backs below the waist and plunging necklines.
However, according to the Courier Mail, one student said many girls had their dresses “rejected” and needed to look for alternative dresses in order to participate.
The student said: “I’m sure a lot of girls have an opinion on how the school handles dress codes.
Brisbane Catholic Education has since claimed that “there was no procedure for approving dresses”.
