Royal Commission to hear of abuse at top Brisbane school

EXPLOSIVE allegations will be aired in two weeks of Royal Commission hearings as past students of two prestigious Brisbane private schools publicly detail sexual abuse at the hands of men entrusted with their care.

One of those students will tell the child abuse royal commission how a former Brisbane Grammar School headmaster saw him being abused on school grounds.

The man, one of scores of victims of BGS and St Paul's School counsellor Kevin Lynch, will provide the commission with a detailed statement of his abuse.

He wrote that he was coerced to masturbate and give oral sex to Lynch in one of the paedophile staffer's notorious "relaxation" sessions in his BGS office during the early '80s.

He was penetrated on two occasions and had to throw out his bloody underwear, he wrote.
