Teacher at Catholic school sexually assaults several students

Well i didn't find this on yahoo news religion, or religious news blog, or religion newsreport. Not on CNN or BBC. Neither the Washington Post or any of the Times papers. Got some clues? IN MY HOMETOWN NEWSPAPER!! Yep thats right this storey came out of the edmonton journal. Sometimes christian activity is right at our doorstep. Oh right that isn't surprising.

ST.ALBERT — A Morinville school teacher was charged Tuesday with sexual assault, interference and exploitation after complaints about him were made to the administrators of G.H. Primeau Middle School.

The Greater St. Albert Catholic School District is not releasing the name of the teacher charged to protect the identities of the two victims, who are under the age of 18.

Superintendent David Keohane said the victims brought the allegations to a teacher at G.H. Primeau last Thursday evening and the district informed RCMP of the allegations the next morning. “He is not teaching within our schools until further notice,” Keohane said

The district is planning to send a letter home to parents Wednesday informing them of the charges.

Keohane wouldn’t say if the alleged assaults took place at school, nor would he specify what subjects and grades the teacher is responsible for.

G.H. Primeau has 375 students in Grades 6 to 8.

It serves students from both Morinville and Legal in English and French immersion programs.
