Exclusive School In Sex Row
ADELAIDE (South Australia): ADELAIDE'S exclusive St Peter's College sacked a staff member because he was suspected of sexually abusing a student - the second case in which police were not immediately in­formed of such allegations.
Former deputy headmaster Ray Stanley, who was present when school chaplain John Mountford was sacked in 1992 after he was accused of sexually abusing a student, has broken his silence, saying another staff member was not reported to police despite "suspicions" he had abused a student.
"Another man that looked after boys in dormitories was asked to leave, but there was no evidence so police weren't called." he said. Police are yet to interview him about Mr Mountford's dismissal.
An Anglican Church report last May found Mr Stanley and former archbishop of Ade­laide lan George failed to in­form police about the assault allegations until 17 days after they became known, by which time Mr Mountford had left the country. He is in a Thai jail awaiting extradition.
"You don't spend your life caring for people to have them abused," Mr Stanley said. "I was so angry that he destroyed the trust that a man of God should inspire in children."
His comments come as the school tries to manage another scandal involving students on a Year 7 excursion to Canberra last May. St Peter's staff are understood to have locked the students inside two adjoining rooms at 7.30 one night and did not see them again until 8.30 the next morning.
When the class returned to Adelaide, two of the students were visibly distressed and later told their parents they had been intimidated and coerced into degrading sexual activity by other boys.
