The Royal Commission of Inquiry into Abuse in Care is looking at what happened to children, young people and vulnerable adults in State and faith-based care in Aotearoa New Zealand between the years 1950–99.
Christ’s College fully supports the purpose of the Inquiry and is participating in the work of the Royal Commission.
We know that amongst our Old Boy community there are survivors of abuse that did occur at Christ’s College. We are acknowledging this now and apologising to those survivors for what happened to them. We are supporting survivors through a process of engagement that we hope will provide appropriate redress.
Talking to College about your experience
A support group for Old Boys
A support group for Old Boys who are survivors of abuse has been established by Jim Goodwin, also an Old Boy, who is experienced in running groups that help survivors of abuse. Jim has worked in mental health for many years. We are very grateful to Jim for creating a forum that can support survivors in this way.
