Institutional Abuse at Red Bend Catholic College

Red Bend Catholic College, an esteemed independent co-educational Catholic school in Forbes, New South Wales, is embroiled in troubling allegations of child sexual abuse involving members of the Marist Brothers. This revelation casts a shadow over its history, demanding attention, understanding, and action from all involved, especially the legal community.

At Koffels Solicitors & Barristers, we are dedicated to supporting survivors of historical abuse, offering them the expertise and compassionate legal counsel they need to seek justice and compensation.

The Troubling Case of Brother Malcolm Hall

Brother Malcolm Hall, who also went by the name Philip Stanley Hall, left a disturbing legacy across several Australian locations during the 1950s and 1960s. His tenure included:

  • Marist Brothers boarding school in Mount Gambier, South Australia, until December 1956.
  • St. Dominic’s school in Parkes, New South Wales, in 1957 and 1958.
  • Red Bend Catholic College (formerly St. Mary’s College) in Forbes, New South Wales, from 1959 to 1961.
  • Marist Brothers in Warragul, Victoria, from 1962 to 1966.

Despite the bravery of abuse survivors coming forward in the late 1990s, leading to charges against Hall, his untimely death prevented the cases from going to trial, leaving a void where justice should have been served.

Addressing the Allegations Against Brother Kevin Callixtus Hogan

Another shadow over Red Bend Catholic College is cast by allegations against Brother Kevin Callixtus Hogan, accused of abusing two students in the mid-1960s. These allegations highlight the need for ongoing vigilance, accountability, and support for those affected by such acts.
