Parents of three learners who died after school principal hypnotised have received a R8,1 million payout from the school board

.

The claim was brought by parents of former North Port High School students Brittany Palumbo (17), Marcus Freeman and Wesley McKinley (both 16), after the then school principal George Kenney admitted to hypnotising them.

Brittany and Wesley took their own lives in 2011, and Marcus died in a car accident that same year after using self-hypnosis techniques Kenney had taught him.

An investigation revealed Kenney had hypnotised more than 75 learners and staff members.

According to attorney representing the three learners’ families Damian Mallard, money was not the reason for the claim. He said the parents wanted to make sure it would never happen again. “He altered the underdeveloped brains of teenagers, and they all ended up dead because of it,” Mallard said. Kenney resigned in 2012 after being put on leave and was charged with two misdemeanour counts of practising therapeutic hypnosis without a licence. He gave up his teaching licence in 2013. Kenney had been warned three times by the school district’s CEO to not practice hypnosis unless it was a demonstration in a psychology class and he had been given written consent by the parents.
