Sacked teacher Rohan Brown the 'heart and soul' of exclusive Trinity Grammar”

Students at an elite Melbourne school have taken to the field to protest the sacking of their deputy principal.

Rohan Brown, former head of the senior school, was sacked from Trinity Grammar School on March 8 after he a video surfaced of him cutting a teenager's hair to meet requirements on the day of school photos.

"The entire community that's been touched by the school wants to see Mr Brown re-instated as soon as possible", parent Jo Slater said.

Former student James Perrera told 9 News Melbourne: "He has a really big personality, he's really important to students, to teachers, to staff and to the community".

Now entering its fifth day, the scandal shows no sign of slowing down, with many students at the Kew private school ditching their green and gold blazers and wearing casual clothes and brown armbands to honour Mr Brown.

That student's aunt spoke at a school meeting last Friday where she re-iterated the fact the family and student involved were not upset by Mr Brown's actions.

'A lot of the boys are planning to have a protest at the school and everyone is wearing brown arm bands for Mr Brown and we all think that the punishment clearly does not fit the crime, ' said a third student.

At least 400 past and present students and parents have gathered near the school on Monday afternoon in protest of Mr Brown's sacking.

Trinity Grammar will now appoint an independent expert to review its procedures, ABC News reports.

"Rohan Brown must be returned to his position and we call on the school council chairman to do the noble thing and resign", the page states.
