Re: CH Letter re support for abuse survivors

I'm really struggling with any allegation against Dick Dawe. <snip> I am simply devastated to hear of the suffering that was taking place .. I agree on both points - Dick Dawe was a good teacher - my guess is that really was an accident. That post is mentioned as an example of CH providing compensa...

Re: CH Letter re support for abuse survivors

Who suddenly departed in your time? Not familiar with the story re dental bills, which sounds concerning. Please share as much as possible. Here are some sudden departure examples - not including the now convicted teachers (some of whom also left suddenly, of course). AH Buck: https://www.chforum.i...

Re: CH Letter re support for abuse survivors

I think that the letter is encouraging. Here are the things that worry me: I believe that Simon Reid was a teacher at the school in the 1990s - and as others have noted - there was knowledge of things going on among the staff in the school in the 1990s. We also know that there must have been knowled...

I remain interested in the unanswered question about drinking to excess with colleagues and pupils.

Do any of the staff or ex-staff have comments on this topic? Is it simply part of the culture?

Re: Roger Martin - trial

You are yet again being thoroughly offensive, this time in openly calling me a liar. I must be confused, please help me out again Vilified. You said that you informed the common room as to the circumstances of your departure: 6. I did, by the way, inform the Common Room at dinner one evening as to ...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

Observations... Vilified gets angry. Vilified lies. Vilified said that he lied by omission to get his next teaching job after leaving Christ's Hospital. (You cannot be honest and say that you lied when you told the truth to get your next job, of course). Vilified's erudition, half truths, and confes...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

All I can say in reply, vilified, that maybe teaching was not a career for you. Possibly the armed forces ? Even they are taught restraint these days. This is an unworthy comment, in my opinion. To me JR's comment conjured up an image of Vilified in charge of a light machine gun. Chillingly humorou...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

It would be good to know more about...Drinking to excess with colleagues and pupils - when and where this makes sense - any information on that would be much appreciated. As this thread is long, let me try a short summary (I hope I will not get in trouble again). We have been educated on: -Selecting...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

Vilified, despite the assault, you do have a way with words. Perhaps you could have considered using your words to persuade the wayward boy to do what you wanted(?) I also find myself thinking about the victim. Did he go on to play in the rugby match that day? (Although his ear was probably painful ...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

So so tedious, so so dense! How on earth did you get into the big boys' class? Even though I'm not qualified in teaching special needs, let me try one last time! You must not over-simplify so grossly and you must refrain from twisting arguments to fit a twisted agenda. The way it works in assessing...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

If Newsome invited Vilified to resign, did he give a reference to a future employer that did not mention this? Vilified wrote: The boys’ parents had begged for me to be spared dismissal, but Newsome was adamant. I must resign, and yes, I’d be given a good reference. here: https://www.chforum.info/p...

Re: Roger Martin - trial

Let's see if I am up to speed: Physical abuse can be heinous or valid depending on context. Is that the short summary? Hello....the search for clarity is commendable, but so is a realisation of the time to withdraw. Right, you have not been around much recently. But let's work on the logic construc...
