Fast forward decades, and I'm told Mr Sleeman reported child sexual abuse by clergy in a parish where he was Principal, and lost his job over it. In 2016 he was vindicated at The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Abuse. More about that in the safe link at the bottom of this page. How do I feel about Mr Sleeman? He was a good teacher for me. He was also a product of his time in the 1970s. I think we learned the 3 Rs (reading, 'riting and 'rithmetic), better than kids do today. However physical punishment is now no longer allowed in schools in my state.
