A History of Institutional Child Sexual Abuse at De La Salle Revesby

“To be able to put your hand up and say ‘this happened to me’ is a really important process – it can heal relationships – you hold somebody responsible for what happened to you. “

Chris Wallington was assaulted at De La Salle Revesby by the notorious Errol Swain in the late 1960s. The institutional child sexual abuse that took place there ruined many lives, but after ignoring the darker times from his past, with the help initially of his brother and later with Koffels Solicitors and Barristers, Chris now feels vindicated, seen and, of course, well-compensated.
