Re: Why a teacher DOES NOT have to report abuse

Would that have been Prep A Freaky ?

I remember Gregory teaching Latin in Prep block. I only remember Eagle in Prep B and Jonah Jones in Prep A. (I was in Prep B).

I don't recall any other housemasters.

Re: REMOVAL OF CHOBA MEMBERSHIP

Irrelevant ? Possibly.

Mud slinging ? Hardly. All fact.

The woman in question was a senior police officer, and what we used to call a bl00dy rotten apple and a total disgrace to her profession.

I could go a lot further but feel it would be counter productive.

Re: REMOVAL OF CHOBA MEMBERSHIP

Ironically, I was tentatively 'approached' a few days ago with regard to possibly joining the masons.

My response along the lines of not wishing to roll one trouser leg up, wear a freshly laundered pinny whilst having a knife held near my throat didn't impress.

I mean - Kinky, or what ??

Dream up a fancy name for it ??

I could dream up a name for it. Not particularly fancy and I would probably have to censure myself !

Re: REMOVAL OF CHOBA MEMBERSHIP

I didn’t realise Ralph Tait was chairman, he was at CH during the 80s and 90s when many of the offences were committed and I imagine he feels at strongly about what happened as many here. I don't know just how close members of the CHOBA board are expected to be to the senior management of CH itself...

Re: Annoying car man

Sometimes, I just wish I was still allowed to drive. Oh ! Hang on a minute. Too many prats,idiots and near do wells use the roads these days. I'll stick with my bus pass and use my one raised finger salute to those above who think they rule the world and road, when I'm trying to cross the road. Inci...

Re: Roger Martin

Did he make an appearance and what happened? Does anyone know, please? Who ?? I assume Robert is referring to Roger Martin the original subject of this thread. If so my understanding is that matters were adjourned until March 2019 when it is envisaged a full Hearing will take place. Thanks.

Re: Why a teacher DOES NOT have to report abuse

That really a frightening situation.

LEGALLY - No statute to protect the pupil.

MORALLY - One has to wonder about the morals of the teacher who is 'in the know'.

Re: Sentencing of Garry William Dobbie

Dobbie can't be sentenced yet as there are two more pending prosecutions against him (that is two more victims so perhaps more than two counts/ charges). The courts will hold on sentencing based on whether the other charges pending are brought to court by the CPS. There may be further charges raise...
