Yes. Absolute charmer. Tried to sexually assault my brother at his infamous farm in the 1970s. That's not a rumour...but the rumours were true. If he tried on now what he did then he'd be in jail. I know from personal experience that this animal was active in the early 60s and possibly even sooner. Thanks to Simon Fisher and his diligent investigation we all may at last find some solace when T.L.R. Is finally locked away. I have been battling these insidious memories for over 50 years. Please contact Simon if you have any information that may assist him in his endeavours Is Tim *hidden* still alive does anyone know? Tim *hidden* is still alive (aged 79 I believe) and currently being charged, at last!
Please contact Detective Simon Fisher (03) 5120 0365) at Central Gippsland SOCIT,
to discuss, and add to those guys, having also been abused, who have now come forward. Not an easy thing to do but a necessary one for recovery. Australian statistics show 1 in 6 kids, males, have been sexually abused. This should not be swept under the carpet any longer.
Us boys would say to each other "Bums to the wall, Tim's on the crawl"! He was our Science teacher and he calmly told us about the changes that puberty was bringing to us kids.
During my first year at high school in 1975 I accepted an invitation to stay at his farm, along with schoolmates Michael and Andrew. I remember Tim coming to say goodnight to us three. There was a copy of Time magazine near my bed which I grabbed. I placed one hand on the letter 'e' in Time and said "Look! I've got Tim magazine!". We had a laugh and Tim tickled me on the chest area because I was being a cheeky kid. I wouldn't call that molestation and I would certainly remember if he'd gone any further than a mere tickle. I remember riding around the farm on a tractor (and taking control of the steering wheel for a brief moment or two). So, for me it seems I didn't have the sort of trouble other kids had with Tim: there were certainly rumours about him, though, at Dandenong High School. I'm guessing that the rumours may have been the reason he retired early (in 1979 or1980). I remember he bought and gave an organ for use by the music teacher at school assembly as a parting gift. I'm guessing his old farm has probably been subdivided into housing lots and made someone very wealthy!

Hi all. Hope you all well. I have been asked to pass this on by Det Sen Constable Simon Fisher.

Former Dandenong High School teacher Tim *hidden* was arrested and charged with sexual assaults on 11/08/16. *hidden* was released on bail and is due to front the Morwell court on 10/11/16
The next court date is called a ‘committal mention’. This is an administrative date only and it gives *hidden* he opportunity to plead guilty if he wishes too.
Prior to this court date I am hoping to speak with or at least have recorded any other victims/complainants and/or witnesses that may be able to assist me further re: *hidden*’s offending.
If possible, could you please forward this email to all ex-students you have on your database etc.
If any of the past students have information that they want to pass on to me they can either send an email to me on this email address simon.fisher @ police.vic.gov.au or they can ring 1800 333 000

T L *hidden*...Tim...teacher Dandenong High School in 1960s..Trackers club at Harkaway..White Holden panel van 1961 model..delightful person. whats this about? I was also a farm victim late 70s. He knew what he was doing was wrong. He has scared me for life. Has he gone to court yet? I and two younger siblings attended DHS from the early 70's.
At the time TLR was the Form 1 co-ordinator.
Scruffy a young bloke that I was, I never dared to have my tie undone or my shirt untucked for fear of a drooling TLR, delighting in adjusting my attire, as he did to so many.
TLR was also the locker coordinator and was responsible for issuing keys etc.
As a habitual loser of locker keys, I always dreaded a visit to room 27, where new keys were issues in the back room, behind closed doors.
I made a point of waiting for others to go into his office before going in, out of fear of being alone with him.
We all heard the cruel taunts when TLR walked the corridors.
To be honest, I felt for the guy, never really being sure that he truly was a threat.
I merely thought that kids, often cruel, and definitely homophobic (in those days) were harassing a potentially innocent man.
I thankfully, was never approached or interfered with by TLR.
I feel more than a little P..sed Off, that those who had the courage to report their experiences with TLR, to the school, were never believed and that no action was taken against this vile animal.
It may seem that I am condemning an innocent man before his trial, but I have It from an impeccable source that he and several others were indecently dealt with by TLR on more than one occasion from the age of 12.
I urge anybody who suffered at the hands of TLR, to come forward to help bring some closure and justice to decades of indecency.
If these and other comments raised in this matter has caused you any distress, please assured that It was not intentional. Please seek help from the many available counselling services as may be referred to you by Simon Fischer and or your GP.
I remember in 1970, he was our science teacher. We all called out "bums to the wall" when he arrived in the classroom. I recall the farm, (I never went) where a group of boys would go to on the weekend. Strange guy, always wore a dark suit & white shirt, black tie. Not surprising this revelation. I was a farm victim. Hope he gets what he deserves. Never forgotten that f*cking night. Prick! Yes, I was also a victim on his 'farm'. I only found out he'd been caught after having yet another breakdown and telling my family who Googled his name. I thought he might have been dead already - glad to hear he is still around to face the music! Often visited his farm with group of friends, some of us boys and some of us girls.
Had a tight group and we would hang out there and ride motorbikes.
He gave me the creeps back then and after him being arrested and reading about the "farm", I have constant flashbacks and panic attacks... Please come forward if this animal took your childhood innocence. Have him locked up and let him rot in a jail cell. I have contacted Simon Fisher with what I know & remember.
I was 9., . i went to the farm 3 times. He had everyone fooled even my parents.
The infamous farm, all true "Dont go there!"
To all you non-believers: "YOU F'KING THINK AGAIN!!"
