Former Cranbrook student says he was sexually abused at private Sydney boys' school

ABC News


In a story which broke on 4 March 2023 we found that a former ward of the West Australian state, Travis Matthews, was allegedly sexually abused as a 13-year-old while at boarding school.

Travis was sent to the prestigious Cranbook School in Sydney after his mother died; his sister was working near Cranbrook.

The WA state paid for Travis’ fees at Cranbook.

What should have been a good opportunity for the boy turned into a nightmare.

Travis Matthews, now serving in the Australian Defence Force, is currently suing Cranbrook.
