ROYAL COMMISSION

Geelong Grammar School appeared before the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in September and October 2015. The Royal Commission investigated how institutions, such as churches, sporting clubs, schools, community and government organisations throughout Australia, 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 co-operated fully with the Royal Commission to ensure these matters were dealt with in an honest, open and transparent manner.
