An independent review into Kildare Catholic College has been announced following months of speculation in the wake of principal Rod Whelan's resignation.
Mr Whelan left the school abruptly at the end of August 2019 prompting an outpouring anger from parents and students.
The Catholic Education Diocese of Wagga Wagga confirmed on Thursday that the review into the school will be conducted in response to the parental concerns.
"Following events at Kildare Catholic College in 2019, the college community had requested a review to assess the issues that led to the change of leadership, the processes involved in this change, and the outcomes," a spokesperson said in a statement.
This latest review will be conducted by retired NSW Department of Education executive director of the rural south and west operations, Geoff Pellizzer, and retired director educational services with the NSW Department of Education in Wagga, Bob Aston.
Mr Pellizzer and Mr Aston will finalise their report by the beginning of term two and provide recommendations to the Archbishop of Canberra Goulburn Christopher Prowse, and the diocese's interim management committee.
Parents at the school have welcomed the review.
"This is our time to be heard now," said Stephen Lawler, whose son graduated from the school last year.
"I had to remove my child from the school at the height of all this last year because it was not a good environment at all.
"I'd imagine the teachers and staff at the school have been under enormous stress over all of this, so I say we've got to support this review entirely."
Mr Lawler was instrumental in pushing for the independent review to take place and said he is pleased to see it will be taking place in a timely manner.
"We need to get this done now. I'm imploring people, teachers, staff, students, anyone who has concerns at all to come forward and make contact with the reviewers," he said.
Member of the school's board and parent of two students at the school, Bill Wood, said he expects the review will help to restore the school's prestige.
"I'm optimistic this will get right to the bottom of the situation," he said.
"I'm hopeful it will lead to Rod Whelan's reputation being restored and to a recognition of what a great educator he was."
In the wake of Mr Whelan's departure from the school and from Wagga, Mr Wood has been strongly advocating for his reinstatement.
Since January, Mr Whelan has taken up the role of school performance leader at the Catholic Schools Office Diocese of Armidale.
Chris Smyth, director of schools in Armidale told The Daily Advertiser earlier this year that the position is a permanent appointment.
But Mr Wood believes the opportunity to return to Wagga should still be afforded to Mr Whelan.
"Whether he takes the position or not is irrelevant," Mr Wood said.
"He should still be offered it, he should still have the opportunity to return. As far as I'm concerned, this whole thing should not have happened."
This latest review into the school follows the conclusion of an independent review by KB West Advisory into the diocese earlier this year.
Mark MacLean, the director of schools at the diocese, tended his resignation following the conclusion of the review in February.
