The School appeared before the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in September and October 2015.

The Royal Commission is investigating how institutions, such as churches, sporting clubs, schools, community and government organisations throughout Australia, have responded to allegations and instances of child sexual abuse. Geelong Grammar School was the 32nd Case Study and the sixth school to be the subject of a hearing.

"The School absolutely condemns any form of abuse, feels deeply sorry for, and profoundly regrets, the abuse that has occurred at the School in the past and continues to co-operate fully with the Royal Commission," Principal, Stephen Meek, said in a letter to the School community.

The School continues to provide the services of an independent, confidential counsellor for anyone in our community who would like counselling or support about this issue. She can be contacted directly during business hours by calling 1800 799 139.

The Royal Commission's final report on the Geelong Grammar School case study is not expected until late 2016. Please visit the Royal Commission website for more information about the public hearing.
