An explosive petition has brought to light a tidal wave of sexual abuse at Australian schools at the hands of young men.

The idea to create the now-viral online petition came after former Kambala School student raised the issue with friends via an Instagram poll.

72 per cent of 300 of her friends said they or someone they are close to had experienced sexual assault from a student from an all-boys school in Sydney's eastern suburbs.

You can view the petition online at:

The stories in the petition are profoundly confronting and disturbing.

We explore the part played by pornography, a heart of sin, the role of parents, peer group, broader youth culture, compulsivity, messaging to boys and girls and the role faith plays.

Marshall Ballantine Jones has just completed a PhD on Pornography and it’s impact on adolescents, pornography and social media… and the connections to narcissism and sexting.

Natalie Ray used to direct a Christian boarding house for female Sydney University students. She serves on a school council and is in pastoral ministry at Northlight Anglican Church.
