  1. Sorry Adam my stay was a little earlier, 1962 to April 1966, but if you need any help with sourting things out, I may be able to help. I took on the Church and four other Marist Brothers back in 2004 and got what they call an ex gratia settlement, a complementary gift with out acknowledgement, nothing what we were owed by them for our sufferings of abuse. You can get my email off Adele as I have given permission for those who went to this place if they needed to contact me in relation of the Institution, regards Graham Evans

  2. Hi Adam,
    I am so sorry to have to edit the names of your friends when you are understandably seeking to re-connect. It’s necessary for privacy reasons. Also due to the shame that many Forogtten Australians were made to feel about their time in ‘care’, some have not told others/loved ones of their past and the National Museum needs to respect that decision. I hope that I have left enough information there for those who remember you to identify themselves.

    Thank you so much for contributing to the website.

    Best wishes,
    Adele
