Christian Brothers logo 150Following  the  public  hearing  of  Case  Study 11 into the Tardun,  Bindoon,  Clontarf  and  Castledare facilities,  the  Christian  Brothers  undertook  to  re-examine  cases  of  former  students  that  had  been “settled on demonstrably unjust and unreasonably low terms”.  

To 24 May 2016 the order received 164 requests for re-examination of past settled matters relating to the WA institutions.

Of these, 147 have been finalised and new settlements have been reached.

This accounts for 91% of requests for resettlements since May 2014.

This latest information updates the five previous public statements since 2014 outlining progress on re-examination after the public hearings in Perth.

Counselling and support is also offered and provided as part of the re-examination process.

The Christian Brothers will continue to work on the remaining re-examination matters and we are confident of making more progress over coming months.

The Christian Brothers Oceania encourage any person who suffered abuse at any of our facilities, to contact the Professional Standards Office in Melbourne on (03) 8359 0134.

Note: Comments are to be attributed to 'a spokesperson for the Christian Brothers Oceania Province'. It is practice that statements will be published in full on the Christian Brothers Oceania website.
