One of Australia's best private schools officially apologized to a 17-year-old student who was sexually abused by his teacher, 36.
The Sydney Grammar School posted the apologetic apologies in Sydney on Saturday.
Married English and theater teacher Bronwen Williams had sex with the student, which cannot be called, in free classrooms, storage rooms and in her apartment for three months in 2016.
During one meeting the couple ate ice cream on her couch and watched Who framed Roger Rabbit? before you have sex.
Sydney Grammar School has issued an apology after a 17-year-old male student was sexually abused by a 36-year-old female teacher in 2016
Married English and drama teacher Bronwen Williams had sex with the student, who cannot be called, in free classrooms, storage rooms and in her apartment for three months in 2016
In text messages, she told the student that she was a & # 39; damn monster & # 39; was for her actions.
The victim felt & # 39; harassed, stalked and dominated & # 39; by Williams.
In the letter of apology, the $ 36,000 per year school praised the student for reporting sexual abuse at the end of 2016.
& # 39; The school is proud of the courageous example it has given when reporting sexual abuse, to prevent more victims, and it encourages all victims of abuse to report this & # 39 ;, was in the letter.
& # 39; The school recognizes that this required enormous courage and respectfully records its admiration for its courage to come forward. & # 39;
Williams pleaded guilty to five counts of sexual intercourse with a person in her care in February 2018 and was sentenced to at least seven months.
Since then she has served her time.
Sydney Grammar further acknowledged that the abuse of male students by female teachers is just as serious.
& # 39; It is regrettable that this has not been recognized in some reports of this case. & # 39;
The teacher was warned four times about inappropriate behavior with students at school
Daily Mail Australia previously revealed that the teacher had been warned four times about inappropriate behavior with students at the school.
She first met the school in September 2013 – more than two years before having sex with the boy – to be reminded of the school's child protection policy.
She received a letter from the school detailing the policy the next day.
The following month the teacher met the school again after a complaint about her inappropriate behavior towards students and was warned about a & # 39; pattern & # 39; with regard to its actions.
At the end of 2014, the school reprimanded the teacher for forming a & # 39; too close pastoral role & # 39; in a male student with a psychological problem.
The full apology from the Sydney Grammar School
Sydney Grammar School wants to apologize to one of its former students, who was the victim of serious sexual abuse by a school teacher.
On May 9, 2017, a former school teacher, Mrs. Bronwen Williams, pleaded guilty of violations of serious sexual abuse in 2016 against a student who attended the school.
By law his name cannot be published. The NSW court sentenced Williams in early 2018 for a number of violations and sentenced her to a full prison sentence, which she has now served.
The abuse took place in 2016 after a lengthy period of inappropriate behavior towards the student by Mrs. Williams.
This had and remains a very harmful impact on the student. Williams's behavior was reported by the student at the end of 2016.
The school recognizes that this required enormous courage and respectfully records its admiration for its courage to come forward.
It remains truly grateful that he found the strength, in impossible circumstances, to ensure that other students were protected from Williams and that she was brought to justice for her misconduct.
The school is proud of the courageous example it has set when it comes to reporting sexual abuse, to prevent more victims, and it encourages all victims of abuse to report this.
The abuse of male students by female teachers is just as serious and harmful as the abuse of female students by male teachers, and it is regrettable that this was not recognized in some reports of this case.
Williams & # 39; insult has led the school to review its policies and procedures, preventing the abuse against its former student. That is why, and for what has happened, the school deeply regrets and unconditionally apologizes to the former student and his family.
