A LEADING Brisbane Catholic boys’ school has wiped the name of a longstanding former teacher from one of its rowing sheds over sexual abuse allegations.

St Joseph’s College Gregory Terrace advised the school community today that the name of late Brother Charles Lorenzo Dillon had been removed from the school building.

Dillon taught at the school for more than 20 years, from 1950 to 1972, and held numerous senior roles.

Principal Michael Carroll said the decision was made “following the recent receipt of information related to historical abuse allegations” against Dillon.

“I understand this information may be concerning for many past and present Terracians and staff,” Mr Carroll wrote in a letter sent to families and teachers.
