Following COPIED message has now been distributed amongst Private Schools in SEQ:
An interim response is requested, to repost on our LinkedIn, WordPress, Social Media & ABC/SBS News Networks.
As some of your Schools have been involved in the Royal Commission (CARC) Hearings, this eMail is querying how your Bodies administrate, for the benefit of the Students’ (I.E. Children & Minors) ‘Safety & Security’? Public News publications have been sourced re: some of your places of education.
This query has been sent on behalf of an evolving network of School-Swapping, alike Church-Swapping. Inclusion of these details are for benefit of previous Survivors-Victims of these Institutions (Private Damages Claims & National Redress Scheme).

Of high importance to any School Institution is the memories & impressions left with their learners. Imagine what damage has been done to leave comments such as:
“protruding erections) during these (repeated) canings.”
“It seems that there was a hidden level of BDSM amongst various levels of 🏫 perpetrators”
“used the strap and cane in me twice in the late 🔥💥 and he loved it! ”
“What a joke a fucking pedo breading ground.”
“I went to 🏫 in the mid 😳’s and have had serious mental health issues after leaving”
“This school ruined my family”
These Statements of Impact have not been Shared to dismiss the value of these Educators. Only to address the tragic outcomes that existed between ‘Elite’ Students & some of those from other backgrounds. In this age of transparency & openness, it is hoped that greater learning & fairness may be achieved.
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’.
For all of those Survivors, Family-Friends & Caregivers of ChildSexualAbuse at BBC – it pleases me to note that I’ve recently been in contact with a Journalist, previous Old Boys’ (OCA) Staff & another Survivor. Although nothing happens ‘instantly’, particularly re: damages from CSA Perpetrators – it’s releaving to have spoken with some of those effected. It’s possibly more rewarding to help the wider-public realise some truths, which would otherwise have been hidden.
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..
