A 25-year-old employee claims that she was blackmailed into having sex with five students at a prestigious boarding school.
The woman, who was employed at the Armidale School in northern New South Wales, pleaded guilty to six counts of sexual intercourse with a person in her care and three counts of aggravated sex in April.
The incidents occurred with students between 15 and 17 years old during several months in 2014 and 2015, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

The former staff member told the District Court of New South Wales that she was treated like trash and claimed that the boys threatened to report her if she did not continue to have sex with them.
"At the time I agreed with what I thought would keep them happy," Judge Christopher Armitage said before acting on Friday.
She also alleged that one of the teenagers raped her on two separate occasions
The woman said she was sorry for her actions and that the situation, which went out of control, was not treated correctly.
The court heard thousands of text messages exchanged between the students and some were read.
A boy sent a text message to his friend: "Are you rooting that shit shit tonight? & # 39;
In a text sent to the woman, a student said that he and his friend wanted to put her on the spit & # 39;

The woman had sent a message to the students about fears that she might lose her job and go to jail.
The students sent text messages about what would probably happen when the behavior was known.
"I'm saying he raped me," he wrote a text message to a student. & # 39; Yes, f — the c —, we'll all say it & # 39 ;, the other replied.
Judge Armitage issued the suppression orders that prohibit the name, location and type of the school after the parents of the children wrote to the court, alleging that the school needed to be held accountable.
The order to suppress the identity of the staff member was maintained.
The woman will be sentenced on Monday.
