Hi fellow friends who went to Mirfield,
Thank you to Mark and others who have highlighted the abuse that took place at Mirfield.
It has always stuck in my mind what happened to me. I was told one night when getting ready for bed to go to see Fr Valmaggia in my pyjamas. The boy who told me had a smirk on his face (funny how you remember these details). On going he weighed me, then told me to take off my pyjamas and lie on my back on his couch. He played with my privates and I remember him asking ‘Did you know that one of your testicles is bigger than the other?’ I didn’t answer and since then have wondered if that was a physical abnormality which would affect me but was afraid to ask about it.
Best wishes to all fellow students,
