  1. Thanks for having the courage to put a website like this up.

    Just wondering if you could put a link to the court cases against the staff you’ve listed at the top of this page. I know some of these teachers have been found guilty of their crimes but this is the first I’ve heard about Colin Noy being labled a paedophile and I’ve done search and can’t find any allegations levelled against him. Yeah he was slightly odd but the same rumours weren’t floating around like some of the other names on your list.

    For fairness and transparancy sake I think it’s important to provide this information, otherwise you run the risk of smearing an innocent person’s name.

    • Mention of these cases/investigations/suspicions provide as much information as is available. As described in the published titles, we aim to be as accommodating as possible. For instance ‘Dubious’ was given approval by any QPS Officers, a description of a collection of suspected staff was given. Obviously, as this arena is not socially-accepted – description has to be as accurate as permitted.

      We are not responsible for any smearing of adults. Minors are handled by latest Qld Acts.

  2. I was a student there 77-81. With respect for some, Wilf was thought of as odd or different, but he never tried anything on any of us- he was a well-liked teacher, and dedicated to helping students in and out of the classroom. Great coach of athletics and cross country, abseiling and canoeing
    He was convicted in 1993 on two accounts, and had neither offended before, nor after then. He did his time in jail, and has been the subject of a massive smear campain ever since.
    A Google search will show you more fiction based on lies, than fact .ie you’ll find a newspaper listing he was caught in Timor on charges of child pornography – ALL reports conveniently FAIL to tell you he was subsequently released/freed for lack of evidence- zero evidence, none at all after the police illegal search and confiscation of everything of his for almost a month- all ‘politically’ trumped-up charges. The newspapers of the day were quick to tell you what he was charged with, but never retracted that when found totally unfounded. “Innocent until proven guilty?” Hah!
    These lies have prompted other opportunists to try and jump on the band wagon and get him charged with other offenses – of which he is innocent. Proving it is another thing, but the truth has a way of not changing.

    Being ‘a bit odd’ is not a crime – and perhaps we are each ‘a bit odd’ in someone else’s eyes. However in today’s world, you’d never dare do things we thought normal in the 70s.

    Ron Holt I saw two years ago – still the same and a lovely bloke. Graham Thompson – ditto. Much respect.Fortunately Kim B, Molloy, and Overlack were not teachers I saw except to pass in the corridor. Full credit to other teachers, including Wilf, Lawson & Lawton, Richardson, Pinhead Smith, Ross McD and Spud for a wonderful 5 years at BBC.

    On the other end of the scale, my brother-in-law was a music teacher. Music was his life and love. Until three students invented a false claim to get at him.
    It took five years, before the finally admitted it was a ‘get even’ ploy, and he’d done nothing to the but teach them along with the rest of the class. However, the false accusations, court hearings, and muck ruined him for life. Seemingly at least one of the accusers had been molested – and it might later come out that it was her father – and not her unwitting and innocent teacher.

    Stay well, and stick to the truth. Who would want to be a teacher these days…

    • Thanks for your input. Although you (& numerous other ‘old boys’) are defensive for the sake of this past staff person’s actions, this Peer Support Group is to provide unaddressed info. As you have a POV of many of the accused-defendants-convicted BBC staff, there is not any further that I can advise you of.

  3. Attended BBC in the mid to late 80s. Will never ever forget the excruciating weirdness of being exposed to Buchanan in year 8, the unnecessary touching and ‘massages’, the toothbrush, the hugely inappropriate comments (in one Geography class a student asked to be excused to go the toilet, in front if the entire class of 12/13 year olds Buchanan says ‘more than two shakes and it’s a wank’), the video nights at his place in Kenmore (which thank god I never went to). Looking back it was SO messed up and no secret whatsoever. WTF was Grot and everyone else doing, if not complicit in it??? I won’t name names, but I know of at least two classmates who have been left very seriously impacted by this evil monster, and continue to be more than 30 years later. As for RV Holt, I found him almost as weird, again WTF was with the whiskas??? But never felt he was in the same boat at Buchanan…but who knows??

    • PJ, As bad as what you’ve gone through, we send our THANKS for speaking out! Many of us are reminded of our days under seemingly identical situations, to what you’ve so precisely described. Impacts of others (e.g. Grot’s ‘indirect’ enabling) can also count as another form of ‘Social + Psychological Trauma’. Many others have privately mentioned numerous other BBC Staff who’ve continued other CSA traits. Holt is another outside of my time, yet others have made both positive + negative comments of. He was a Predator, who was v selective of his targeted prey.

      Whoever is impacted by any of these unfurling amounts of (hidden) Abuse, should speak with a Counsellor. As they specialise in these fields, the’ll be able to help resolve some OR all of these complex matters. Their most suggested contacts are provide at https://www.childabuseroyalcommission.gov.au/contact. Some cases may take some time, yet regular contact helps build more understanding. We’ve got until 2028, to submit our NRS Applications.

      Thanks, Tony Anstatt

    • PJ (+ many others), as excruciating as these past moments are – Sorry. For what you’re able to do – Thanks. Although we’ve been ‘convinced’ that “nothing wrong is occurring, with non-penetration contact” – when historic recollection of these events still lingers decades later, these are also able to be Claimed for. NRS (National Redress Scheme) is a simplified option of itemising the various moments Butch, Grot and RC Holt Abused from different boats (yet, all shared BBC in common 🚤 ). I had been effected by two different 🚤 Captains: Grot + Cujes: 1990-94.

  4. Come forward and talk gents. If you have had an experience or know anyone that has. You may have seen lloyd is in court now. It is important
    you act and make these pricks accountable.

    • Justin, Thanks for your brave comment! Many Visitors have viewed info on this RCbbc Blog, yet there’s been minimal feedback (some FB Messages, from Friends). Cheers, for your motivation. Tony

  5. Hi Tony, of the ‘dubious staff’ list above how many were actually charged for sex abuse? Was Bradley ever done? Nick Lloyd? Overlack? Surely Brett Dutton got done! Do you even know? There is nothing on the internet, predictably. Im sure Mr Golding got done. You cant even find anything on Buchanan arrest? Do tell me he died a slow painful death!

    • It’s great that you’re so passionate, of this info. Together with the small team of other Survivors an overlapping trail of the school-swapping, nearly identical to church swapping, has been uncovered. I’ve seen Overlack practising at QUT. Don’t think Bradley (coining onto church Rev.) or Golding ever got trialed. Unknown about Lloyd & Dutton.

      If interested in talking with Cam Russell (BBC), his details are ‭07 3217 2416‬ (W), ccrussell@westnet.com.au or https://www.linkedin.com/in/cameron-russell-7a9a5160/.


      • Bradley, was always a Rev. even while teaching. At least from 1989 when I started the school. I can remember being terrified of being caned… I never was..thank God! I do remember him publicly caning kids during a junior school assembly.

        I recall one student I knew telling me how he got caned. He knew he would be caned the next day. He told me Bradley touched his bottom to check if he had put anything down his pants to lessen the pain… maybe he was touching him for other reasons???

        He also took my class one day in about grade 8, when my geography teacher was away. He got all the boys to write “appropriate or inappropriate” about a list is sexual acts, including oral sex, sodomy, beastiality etc. He said he wanted to gauge how opinions were changing over time on these issues.

        I also recall him using the urinal in the junior school boys toilet…the staff toilet was right next to the kids one…I remember feeling uncomfortable with this.

      • Stephen, Thanks for your feedback to Miki & me. It’s deeply meaningful that another POV verified the same statements of a Victim. These situations have such strength. We also hope to use Lloyd’s Trial as motivation, in taking our RCbbc Blog further. Cheers, TonyA

    • Wilf Mentink was convicted for few things later. Easily verified with google. I believe Peter Overlack went on to be caught elsewhere. I find it hard to believe that Graham Thompson and Ron Holt were involved. The others are after my time. Though heard plenty about Buchanan through the grapevine. Wilf was seriously weird.

      • Much of the background CSA info is kept away from SM (via Police & legal). Searches via Google & similar may be limited, as you’ve found with GT & RH. These situations had been exploited by some Predators, which Catholic Cardinal George Pell’s public revelations have triggered more Transparency of. The most essential thing, is that CSA Survivours & their Family-Friends have as uneffected lifestyle as possible.

        Murphy Schmidt & knowmore can provide you direct help!

    • Golding got caught with an extensive collection of child porn on his laptop (when sent for repair). I believe he has done time for this. Lloyd was just in the news facing charges yesterday… that’s how I found this blog!

    • I also forgot to mention..
      When, Golding left BBC, I think it was in 1995 but maybe 1994, there were rumours about his departure. We were told by Cujes, on full school assembly, that some staff had left the school and there were vicious rumours about the reasons but none were true…not long after the student who he had tried to discuss masterbation with told me what had really happened. We were openly lied to as a school.

      • I was the whistle blower for Golding, in 1994 after he invited me for one on one music practice and then locked the door behind me and things quickly went south. The police investigation (operation Argos) took many years to compile, eventually I think I was second year university they came and met me to re take the statement (reliving every detail all over again many years after the act). They had now gathered about 20 cases against him. Myself and an older victim were there on the first day of trial as key witnesses.. I saw that pos on that day and had chills. We were sitting in the hallway waiting to go into the Courtroom when we heard the case was being thrown out by the public prosecutor (Di fingleton) as there was a chance we could lose and that was a waste of public funds. Speechless and absolutely broken… I watched him walk away with a smile. That’s alli can recall but I lost alot of faith in the way the world works that day.

      • However things were ‘resolved’, BBC Music had Mr Pratt (sp.?) for majority of 1993-1994. Obviously, Argos took away QPS resources – for “real crimes” of the 1990’s. Golding may have shared a common understanding with Buchanan + others. Thanks again, for your sharing these facts.


    • As closed discussions are private, I can only discuss that BBC continues to recommend their PMSA Legal channel for Redress. Overall, BBC (alike similar ‘Elite’ GPS) only wish to focus on their Academic-Sporting-Cultural abilities. That’s a huge cultural change to make! George Pell’s losses of Respect may have some impact, yet Private Damages Claims seem only Qld Courts avenue.

    • A small group of past students (BGS, BBC & IGS) meet &/or message together. Personal Damages seem most effective & Group Claim may be available thereafter. Murphy Schmidt is most experienced at dealing with BBC’s PMSA: 3303 9800, Steve Herd or Brendan Ezzy, sherd@murphyschmidt.com.au or bezzy@murphyschmidt.com.au.

      knowmore are also of great help: 07 3218 4500, adminbrisbane@knowmore.org.au or info@knowmore.org.au.

      Good luck

      • So we have, what, 10 teachers at BBC (in that era) who were fiddling with kids and BBC is not named and shamed with the Royal Commission? How? How is that possible? The very fact that BBC is NOT named and shamed, just goes to show the full extent of how rife child sex abuse is in these institutions.

    • Grammar (BGS) comes in from an even more unique position. Not only are they ‘Elite’, but their existence is founded on State Governament Laws & Bylaws. That is where the CSA Survivours have been driven by a slightly different motivation. Some of the past students, receiving Settlements are involved with this RCbbc blog. PMSA (BBC) is still involved in protecting reputation, over transparency it appears.

  7. is this page a load of horse shit??? I commented here about year 12 exam results being given to prefects. it was deleted. Tim Bentley (school captain) won the ‘Biology prize’ in 1993, he was not a scientist and he was not clever. Nick Lloyd (then teacher and pedofile) gave him the exam answers. The Pedofiles gave exam results to many of the prefects in year 12. why?

      • So the school captain of BBC in 1993 was given the year 12 exams and answers, before he walked into the test. He won the Biology prize but we are not to ask questions? Ask him how and why he was given those results and it will open this whole can of pedofile worms!!!!!!!

  8. Prefects were given the exam questions and answers before the year 12 testing. Why? Look at Tim Bentley winning the biology prize, i mean really. He was no scientist and def not the sharpest tool in the shed. He won the Biology prize over some bona fide geniuses in Ben Craven and several other really clever kids because Llyod gave him the exam results. They gave the exam results to several prefects, I dont want to name names, but i am sure it was to shut the prefects up. If you were a little nerdy kid and getting sexually abused and you said something bad about Nick Llyod etc, the prefects and rugby players would beat you up. What a clever system.

    • Miki, may I please request that you immediately delete your comment above about TB as it is complete and utter BS. You are entitled to your own opinion but to defame TB, without any real evidence and in a public forum where the main topic of discussion is something completely different, is completely inappropriate.

      • Survivours, Counsellors & Advocates do operate differently to others. As such, their POV are welcome in open forums, such as this. Together with George Pell’s revelations, society’s readjusting their POV.

    • I was a student at BBC over this period and had Nick Lloyd for both Science and Biology. There was a running joke about Nick Lloyd’s ‘extra study’ sessions before end of semester Biology exams that only his favourite students would know where/when they were being held.

      Looking back there were a tonne of red flags with him that we just weren’t mature or experienced enough to realise what they were. He’d be very ‘handsy’ during biology classes, or he’d show up in the locker rooms after rugby practice to shower, but my favourite being him giving us a lecture about the dangers of testicular cancer then telling us to go home that night to check for lumps then asking us questions about it the next day.

      • Cheers for all of that! Whenever you’re ready (can also be done anonymously), I strongly suggest for you to speak with a Counselor. You may be able to have these experiences explained further & some could result in you receiving Redress Payments:

        – ‘red flags’
        – physical handling (even forced exposure)
        – testicular issues
        – coaching & shower

  9. Tony- good on you for doing this page….
    Is there a class action against the school for everyone who was abused or suffered trauma from it? Has anyone kept a record of how many kids from this era committed suicide? I was there 1988-1993. The place was loaded with sickos! If there is a class action, who is bringing it together?

    • Miki, a small team of other past students have begun making Damages Claims through Murphy Schmidt Solicitors & other schools had used Shine Lawyers, etc. As I’d been involved in a following MVA (car accident), Qld Law prevents me from claiming again (‘double-dipping’). I’m passionately driven, to help others, as their appeared none for me (1990-94).

      Keeping this Online SM is a way of keeping a record, offering help, sharing worthwhile strategies & linking with the growing amounts of other Survivour Groups: You’re not alone & ‘there is light at the end of this dark tunnel’. Bingo, GPS SEQ seemed a breeding ground & BBC had a ‘more the merrier’ impression!

      • There was Nick Lloyds mate Cameron Hughes – he was a ped as well. Lawyer. One of the ‘distinguished’ old boys, was always sniffing about the school hanging out in the boarding house, change rooms, etc. You cant find anything about him online with Woodgate Hughes law firm.

  10. From what’s remembered of Teacher Courses, the “Attachment” bonds is an essential trait of Child-Teacher (particularly in Early Childhood). For those students from low-SES backgrounds, travelling for hours may bring a return of these EC unfamiliarities. This may be a major reason why younger aged students, particularly seemed to be targeted.

  11. Thanks ..

    I have reached out now to Knowmore and am very happy with their approach and the kind of support they offer. Thanks for that referral.

    You know I have struggled along through my whole 20s and 30s thinking that I was responsible for my confusion, and so seeing your site and reading about the confirmations of other students and even some charges laid against some of these men brings a weight of relief to me.

    What a total nightmare that place was for me. I hated every day. It messed me and my brother up totally. Some days I would go from Swimming practice in the morning with Mentink always around, to German with the bondage fetishist Overlack, to Science with the regularly inappropriate
    teen-man Noy, then English with the very weirdly perverted Dutton, then Religious studies with the groping, disgusting RV to Rugby with the lecherous molestor Buchanan around.

    No wonder I was disfunctional by the time I was 14. No chance to fly right with all these deviants as role models. Their lessons were all vehicles for externalising their perversions and I cant believe that GThompson wasn’t in on it all. He tried to cane me once but I was sick of it by then so I just refused. I just stood in his office and stared him down. He just brushed me away. Later he expelled me and I was unemployed all through my 20s despite result of my parents hard earnt fees.


    • It is now believed GT & Cujes after him had quite a Managerial Role, as they’ve each been mentioned in discussions with other persons (Old Boys, Legal, Police, etc). Some other ‘overlaps’ are becoming obvious, with other GPS Institutions – stay tuned. Your ‘Losses of Potential Earnings’ + ‘Reimbursements’ should be addressed in the Private Claim. After all, ‘let honor stainless be’?

    • Anonymous, I know of someone who was only 12 when my ‘Extra Curricular’ activities began at BBC. They were quite used to it, as their 1st “in the name of god” experience was during a photo shoot after their ‘Book Prize’ when they were 4. A childhood of multilayered-scriptural goodness …

      • I am not surprised by this. It does seem incredible how blatant it all was. No wonder we all thought it was normal.
        Thank you for what you are sharing Tony.
        It’s helping me begin a process I should started years ago.

      • ‘Conditioning’ is a term used by Counsellors/Psych/’Shrinks’ to describe parts of these CSA behaviours. As many Survivors/Victims were viewed as ‘Outsiders’, who entered the ‘Elite’ scene – many of us were oblivious to the expected modus-operandi/behaviour/(silent) CSA. Whether or not not they were exposed to it, many Boarders (Rudd house) were – CSA should never occur. It seems that although we’ve had a Royal Commission, many still believe that they’re at fault. I hope this info helps you in your journey/”process”.

  12. Thanks Tony.
    I will look into the help you have suggested.
    What is CSA?
    I am curious as to your omission of RV Holt as a serial offender. Is there a reason for this?

    • Good to hear. Sorry, CSA is a common acronym for ‘Child Sexual Abuse’. (It also starts to feel like you’re just repeating initials: distancing) Yes, although Holt was before my time, numerous other ‘Old Boys’ have mentioned him & their private encounters. Lucky, if you weren’t part of their playground, although many others seemed to ‘fill in the gaps’ …

      • Dutton was an English teacher. I’m not sure if his first name was Brett, I think this may be incorrect. He taught me in grade 11 and 12 English. He was also involved in debating. He was himself a former Rudd boarder when he was a boy. He returned years later as a teacher. I think he may have also been a boarding house master during his teacher time at BBC. I never suspected anything like this from him…but he certainly had some “out there” ideas when it came to English literature.

  13. Im looking for a conversation about my time at BBC in the 80s I was ‘taught’ by Butch, Overlack, Dutton, RV, Noy and Bradley. Im staying anonymous until I can feel who is behind this forum. I hope to hear from you. I would like advice

    • Sorry that you’ve endured all of these ‘lessons’, from this wide range of BBC vermin. It’s great that you’ve been able to speak out about it. A close group of CSA (from some of these & others) help with this site.

      knowmore is a great starting step to speak with, as they’ve offered much Legal advice; Living Well offers handy Booklets / APPS https://www.livingwell.org.au/get-support/living-well-app/; Murphy Schmidt Solicitors provide expert help on Private Damages Claims (PMSA).

      Good luck, whichever way you go & I look forward to messaging/speaking/meeting with you. Congrats in speaking out, with truth that’s still hidden by many others. Caution (anonymity) is a natural behaviour, that comes after adolescence – when many of us were targeted before!

  14. I just found this site.. I went to BBC in the mid 80s and have had serious mental health issues after leaving. I was expelled after becoming dysfunctional there. Id like to know who to talk to about my experiences and losses. This school ruined my family

    • Indeed, you’re bullseye with describing BBC alike a “pedo breeding ground”. So many parents got convinced (brainwashed?!) by his double-sided nature. My own parents started “joking with idea of sending you to Bording” 🤣😂😳. They still hide behind the very thing that Institutions couldn’t, under the RC: seems like churches go down, while preaching to beliebers not to.

  15. Alan Bradley used the strap and cane in me twice in the late 80’s and he loved it! He was a real uncomfortable person to be around, (vet hands on) and loved to bend you over the desk and wack away for very little reason.

    > AB had a reputation among Rudd House boarders of arousal (protruding erections) during these (repeated) canings. It seems that there was a hidden level of BDSM amongst various levels of BBC perpetrators (e.g. Butch & Deep Heat). Bradley continued into 1990’s with their caning passion!

    • You should consider reporting it to Police & knowmore (Community extent of Royal Commission issues) & claiming Compensation. There are many others in your circumstance. Other students (Rudd) were aware of their arousal, during canings (BDSM?): mine were mid 90’s.

  16. don’t forget Brett Dutton! He is a ped as well, convicted. Nick Lloyd is a ped. Crikey! There was nearly a dozen of them in the late 80s early 90s. Parents paying $20, 000 a year to have their kids exposed to it. BBC should compensate every single family really.

    • John, thanks for this info! Are you (& any family) going alright? I’ve just spoken with a knowmore Senior Legal woman, yesterday & was reminded that they’re the best starting point to Report anything. A small group of BBC CSA Survivors meet regularly, out of South Brisbane area. Other avenues include Legal ($), or Counselling: ASCA, now “Blue Knot” are my preferred group & I still call/eMail them, whenever I need a lift that’s not appearing. I’ve lost contact with ALL of my family: refusal to cope with my childhood’s (hidden) CSA is a major reason… I’ll post the above details ASAP!

    • Seriously I cant believe I’m reading this stuff. I was there during the 80’s. Coming from canada where there is no Capitol punishment I was shocked. Even more so when I saw and experienced first hand the abuse that went on in that school. I’m not worried about naming names as al these teachers are either dead or to old , not to say I wouldnt go toe to toe with any of these old fossils. Would love to now that I am older and can speak out. Mr Malloy wood shop guy had a sign in front of your head that said relax as you were being caned. My first experience of him was 2 broken fingers from 3 casings. And another extra one for moving my hand . Kim Buchanon and his toothbrush to the ear? WTF and his horse bites that he thought was funny but extremely painful as a young guy . I’m out of country now but that school was the death of my early child hood. I never looked back until now as I was telling some stories to some colleges of mine. Did a little search for evidence as they didnt believe me .hmmmm The school was prestigiously filled with so many bad people.

      • Thanks for sharing your experiences, Chris. As hard as it was for any of us to have gone through this, you’re also extremely brave in being open on this growing ‘Discussion Board’. We hope that it can also motivate others to add their POV … (named OR anon.)

      • Thanks, for giving a response – time doesn’t matter! ‘Capital punishment’ is an extreme punishment, which I was told became illegal under Qld Ed. in Schools from (approx.) 1995. While Buchanan is the primary BBC staff acknowledged in discussions, BBC will not openly admit to any wrongdoing. Thomson & Cujes (past Headmasters) were each called before the 2013-17 Royal Commission, yet nothing related to BBC events were mentioned. Your “out of country“ may also leave jealousy with other Survivours. “So many bad people” still seem to gravitate to these places.
