I feel sick.
I have been pained in the knowledge that during my time as principal that this occurred.
I would like to apologise to the students.
I am not in any way comparing my personal suffering, and I am suffering, to theirs – certainly not.
I don’t mean to suggest that. no one can understand their pain.
I see that many mistakes were made. we should have responded better.
I think that from 2007 we started that process and today things are very very different.
I can say personally how I felt.
I would like to say to the victims: If there is anything that they feel we should still be doing.
I would value very much the opporutnity to be able to help them to move forward.
I would value that for two reasons – anything that we can do to help them in their healing process, I personally would like to know.
Secondly If i can do anything to help, I think that would help me and my healing process.
