  1. Is there an avenue to asks questions of other members? Specifically IGS. I have only started remembering things through therapy but want help identifying one of the people involved.

    • Certainly! Especially any other single-gender institution. It’s a typical part of any human, to keep past memories hidden away, not completely gone, yet it also works out for wrongdoers/predators: whenever therapists can get involved, they gradually get surviving-victims to ‘unpack’/’unearth’/’reveal’ these secrets, piece by piece.

  2. Is there an avenue for me to find out more information. I have recently gone to therapy and now am remembering some of the things that have happened to me. I was interacted with from Buchanan at IGS but he wasn’t the main perpetrator in my case. For me it was the maths teacher – who was fired/left at the same time as Buchanan. He was a very large man and often had white substance on his mouth (chalk) but being teenagers we all joked it looked like something else. He was the main person to do things to me but I forget his name and haven’t seen it mentioned. I remember his face and his body and exactly where I was and every moment though. If I had a year book I would be able to point him out in a heartbeat.

    • Steven, unfortunately most of the Private Schools (alike the Business world) try to hide the truths away from being easily known. ‘The truth is out there’ is both an X-files slogan and a true statement … it just takes some work, digging deeper.

      We try to share about related info, as much as possible. Please pass on any related info to us, which we’ll try to repost ASAP. We’ll also start asking some contacts…

    • It’s a common reaction of CSA Victim-Survivours to throw away anything that’s linked to their abuses. You’re by no means alone in not having any photos/yearbooks. Each school should have past editions in their libraries, or graduate offices.

      Fat guy, known alcoholic, floppy hat, shirt always untucked. lived across the street from the school. went home at lunch to drink.

      I named a Steven ??? as a potential “other student who may have known” in my NRS application.

      I was 95-00

      RCBBC I never would have made it this far without your blog.

      Posting the acceptance today.

      • Barry “Bazza” Gray,

        You’re v welcome + thanks for your comments. As a peer, it’s like an ‘unwritten code’ – that CSA surviving-victims stick together. It’s great that there’s now a growing amount of counselling, support groups & all institutions are expected to provide external options for kids/family.

        Unfortunately, some of us missed out on this …

        Thanks, TonyA
