Citipointe Christian College this afternoon announced the resignation of Principal Brian Mulheran. Mulheran previously went on extended leave following controversy earlier this year.
A Citipointe Christian College student contract required students and families to denounce homosexuality. The school also demanded that students identify by birth gender.
News of the contract prompted widespread denunciation of the Citipointe Christian College and principal Brian Mulheran including from former students and staff. Protests took place at the school gates and eventually even Prime Minister Scott Morrison condemned the contracts. The day following the PM’s criticism, Brian Mullheran took an extended leave from his position as principal.
He described the leave as giving the school ‘time to heal’.
But this afternoon, Citipointe Church’s Mark Ramsey announced Mulheran’s resignation.
“I wish to advise you that Brian Mulheran has resigned from his position as principal of Citipointe Christian College.
“Mrs Ruth Gravestein has agreed to stay on as acting principal until the end of the 2022 school year.”

Although Mulheran obviously intended to take the heat out of the controversy by taking leave, ongoing revelations of the school’s actions under his administration kept the pot boiling. Just yesterday, QNews reported on a letter Principal Brian Mulheran sent to teachers in February. In it, he stated the school would no longer provide students with support ‘in areas including but not limited to: gender dysphoria, gender incongruence, gender identity, sexuality and sexual orientation’.
