Trial underway in lawsuit over alleged abuse at Grenville Christian College

BROCKVILLE – A trial is underway in Toronto into alleged physical and emotional abuse suffered by five students at the former Grenville Christian College, east of Brockville.

The plaintiffs from the now-closed college, went to the private boarding school in Maitland between the early 1970s and late 1990s.

In the class-action lawsuit, they claim they were psychologically tormented and also abused by college staff.

The defence denies the allegations. Two men specifically named in the suit – former headmasters J. Alastair Haig and Charles Farnsworth – have died since the legal process was started.

The trial is expected to last about five weeks.
