Al-Taqwa College principal says he does not believe excessive running causes girls to lose their virginity
by Henrietta Cook and Benjamin Preiss
Authorities will investigate a principal's denial that he banned girls from running at sporting events because he believed it could cause them to lose their virginity.
The Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority is investigating a former teacher's claims that girls at Al-Taqwa College were discriminated against and prevented from participating at cross country events.
On Thursday Mr Hallak denied the allegations, saying girls at the Islamic school participated in a range of sports including running over a range of distances, basketball, cricket and hockey.
