Australia: Don’t call it ‘rape’!
Call it a ‘discrepancy’.
A teenage boy has been charged with rape in Scotland and several fellow students have returned to Australia in disgrace after they were chosen to represent Sydney’s prestigious The King’s School in an international leadership exchange program….
In the latest scandal, a 16-year-old boy returned to Australia a fortnight ago after he was arrested, charged and remanded in custody over an alleged sexual assault at Scotland’s oldest boarding school, Loretto….
…one parent, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, claimed King’s – Australia’s oldest independent school – had become consumed by a culture of ”cover up”.
She said: ”Power and influence rule the school and the boarder culture breeds bullying and contempt. This sort of behaviour is being excused again and again.”…
Fairfax Media is aware of the identities of several students involved in overseas discrepancies but has chosen not to reveal them.
King’s is a wealthy Anglican private school — though you have to look hard on its website these days to find any evidence of its religious affliliation — heavily subsidised by Australian taxpayers.
