Royal Commission Marylands abuse
Abuse of children at Marylands School in Christchurch from the 1950s to the 1980s will be the subject of a special Royal Commission investigation.
The Royal Commission looking into the abuse of children in state and religious institutions has announced it will inquire separately into events at Marylands.
Marylands was a residential school for boys, many with learning disabilities, run by Catholic brothers of the St John of God order.
The commission is asking for victims, families, staff, witnesses or anyone else with knowledge of abuse at the school to call them confidentially on 0800 222 727.
