Vic Education Minister James Merlino has confirmed the state's education regulator will investigate St Kevin’s College over its management of child abuse risks following last night's damning Four Corners program

Victoria's education regulator will investigate whether St Kevin's College in Toorak breached state standards for managing risks around child abuse.

The decision was made following reports a long-time volunteer athletics coach was convicted of grooming a then 15-year-old student at the elite all-boys school in 2015. The VRQA's announcement followed an ABC Four Corner's investigation into the matter and the culture at St Kevin's College which aired on Monday night.Australian Broadcasting Corporation/Four Corners

Good now we must stop funding religious schools with taxpayers money

Why does a secular country fund these abhorrent cult schools, no funding of cults should be permitted.

Any chance of the federal government withholding public funds from this private cesspit? Nup!

Merlino will find StK’s lying low .. probably more lying than low

4corners ThisIsJournalism

ItsBouquet So this crap first came to the attention of the State last night? That is a public disgrace, surely an education regulator should be aware of the original case, and would routinely follow up. Obviously too difficult for them!

Students are proud white supremacists. Literally hitlers.

If they take public money, they can take public scrutiny.

There 2 issues facing stkevinscollege are leadership and culture. The appalling leadership from the governance body and principal have overseen the mysoginyst culture. The carcass rots from the top.

$13m public money has been given to stKevins during the tenure of the unfit, improper headmaster, 'Mr' Stephen Russell. A waste of public money, the $13m must be returned. Russell must go. Well past his use-by date. 4corners auspol boysClub

Throw the book at the school hierarchy and sack the Head Master!

Asher_Wolf Appalling!

When the Courts are NOT Taking Care of Business. We are not far away from Anarchy

That’s good news but why does it take a 4corners story for anyone to act?!
