I certainly do not think that the methods used at St Vedast were beneficial and I think that you know better than that Are you therefore not in agreement with your mother as to whether or not you benefited from St Vedast? She told me in her email that you have said you are glad you had the St Vedas...

Hi Tom, The basic concept you seemed to have failed to grasp is that there is a clear and obvious difference between the abuse of children in a supposed educational establishment, and the types of experiences you describe on your travels around the world with the military. The two things are not rel...

Ok PEACE, Anon-fromStJamesGirls'sch Please forgive me for losing my temper with you. All I will say that is we are dealing with a highly delicate subject here and we are bearing our souls!

Jeez ANON-fromStJamesGirls'sch, with the greatest of respect to you, what on earth do they teach you in schools these days?! Wasn't like that in my time of course {;o) Don't they at least teach you to read and understand stuff before you comment on it? Re: your comment about without any action, you ...

Antises wrote: I think it is outrageous to say slapping is child abuse, just as it would difficult for an adult to sue someone who has slapped him.

Dear Anon- from the girls' sch Re: I would also like to say how I have witnessed a few people read Matthew's account of his life at St Vedast, some of the comment they made were "it seems so unrealistic", "perhaps it is slightly exaggerated", "I suppose you have to take it with a slight pinch of sal...

COME ON GUYS, IT'S REALLY NOT ALL THAT COMPLICATED!

The issue of physical/mental abuse administered in the past aside (as discussed in previous postings), I think the following question needs to be asked in the interests of future generations:- How much transparency is there on the issue of how St James is sold to prospective parents? i.e. Exactly wh...

aims and objectives

I would like it to be known that I am currently in a dialogue with the head of St. James, in an attempt to arrive at some form of "truth and reconciliation", and to express any aims and objectives we may have.
