Paedophile teacher immortalised in school memorial with the words 'He touched us all'


Knox Grammar School in Wahroonga, Sydney

An elite boys' school in Sydney paid tribute to a teacher dubbed a "notorious molester" with an inscription on its memorial gates that read "he touched us all".

Knox Grammar School in Wahroonga, Sydney, paid tribute to its former art teacher Bruce Barrett with the inappropriate memorial despite his convictions for sexually assaulting students during his time at the school.

Former Knox Grammar School student Scott Ashton told an Australia's royal commission he was deeply confused by the memorial at the school, which is subject of an investigation into its response to sexual abuse allegations.
