From both my personal NRS, who I have met with & the increasing amounts of research (Survivor, Counselling & Medical) it is becoming obvious that these Sexual Abuses on Children should never have happened. Institutions payment of any amount of Damages-Insurance-Redress is simply a financial figure. At the core of Christian Religions is the human part of the Trinity, Jesus. Similar to Osiris, Dionysus, Attis, and Mithras each concept (may have) borrowed from others. Just as the ‘stories’ of BBC’s Buchanan (‘Butch‘) seem to have begun from a CSA Perpetrator’s (hidden) secrets, repeated in following years to Students, turning into a ‘Myth‘. It is now commonly viewed, that parts of human history has been recorded by the stronger power, often destroying all proof of opposition. Just as a dominant Teacher has destroyed (most) proof of their earlier CSA Perpetration. Thankfully, our Justice has adapted to be able to allow for Surviving CSA Victims & their Families to voice the impacts.
Although Convictions of following Schools after BBC have made Public News, through indiscriminate Meetings much more of the actual Truth is becoming known. While there may be Legal channels, it has been via SM where Sharing has been possible. By simply ‘joining-the-dots’, the similarities of CSA are unraveling themselves. In SEQ, Brisbane Grammar has already released News, with GM Cujes & G Thomson BBC appearing before the RC. Cujes re: Trinity (following BBC) & Thomson re: Gregory Robert Knight (non-BBC). Obviously, it appears that the PMSA empowered “reputation” of BBC is held with greater worth than the Truth. Previous, current & Future BBC Students/Families will remain concerned for the well-being of their Children at BBC.
The powerful speech @AsiaArgento during the closing ceremony of Cannes. “I was raped here in 1997 by Harvey Weinstein.” Going on to describe Cannes as HW’s hunting ground; many BBC past Students & their Families will remember how BBC was remembered as a ‘hunting ground’. Even the term “hunting ground” can be remembered in some of BBC’s (un-admitted) Offenders of the 1990’s. Perhaps this why any public announcements correlate with a psychological effect, that’s been hidden to some level. Even decades and decades after the events happened, any reminders of them may trigger some reaction(s).
This is where LivingWell have provided their resources, suitable to these male Survivours and their Families. “We all benefit from maps of life’s territories. We do not live our lives in straight lines” is from the Indigenous themed clip ‘No Straight Lines’.
Thank you for your communication of 11th March to Brisbane Boys’ College, advising of your intention “to notify all parties of BBC’s families (past and present, ensuring 18+ ages) that lodgement of a Report is being formulated”.
In relation to your request that your message be distributed “amongst current and previous parents (or similar)”, it is not the practice of the college to distribute material on behalf of third parties.
By letter dated 22nd February last, in response to your initial approach to the college, I made you aware of the PMSA process which is followed in relation to notification by former students of alleged abuse at the college and invited you to meet with me to discuss your allegations. To date you have not responded to that invitation..
The lodgement of a claim by you with the Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse Royal Commission, citing Buchanan and Golding, is duly noted.
The PMSA is concerned to assist former students of its schools who believe that they have been injured as a consequence of events which occurred at their school, and is prepared to explore various avenues for assistance. It does this without any admission of legal responsibility.
Accordingly, should you care to avail yourself of the opportunity of discussing with me, as the PMSA’s Director, Protection From Harm, your time at Brisbane Boys’ College, I would be grateful if you would communicate that desire either by mail or email to the PMSA’s Corporate Office, as previously advised. A mutually convenient time and venue can then be arranged for a meeting.
Please be assured that all allegations are treated seriously, sensitively and confidentially.
To provide details of impacts of “Child Sexual Abuse” from some of BBC’s Staff – statements will be collected in a Report, assisting in “Institutional Responses” (BBC Staff). As Tony Harewood (pref. A. Strickland) has been registered with RC as a ‘Collecting Aide’ (340607) for another Institution, this number will continue to be used.
Some past BBC peers have received an Invite (via FB), which are able to send to others.
