Accused of sexual abuse teacher worked a Melbourne
One of the students had the law on the teacher and the school in the Supreme Court in Melbourne. Her name is Emma and she didn't want to give any other information. This music teacher, which was accused of abusing, was working at an esteemed Melbourne school for almost two years with unsupervised access to children. The court statement claims, that Emma had suffered major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder after the abuse. Now Emma is 20, but she was nine, she had private piano lessons in the closed soundproof room. She said, it had only one window and only one part of the room was seen from outside.
At first the girl liked the lessons, but later she understood the teacher's motives, so she felt like in a trap. After a while Emma's mental health began gradually worsening. Her mother considered there was something wrong with her brain, so she went to a paediatrician and they said it was extreme anxiety. At the age of 14 it's become clearly, that was happening after the medical examination. Emma revealed everything to her psychiatrist and then to the police. The school actually has done nothing to protect the girl and didn't offer her any support. This school didn't answer the question, whether the students still work with their teachers on their own in closed rooms.
