into abuse at Dilworth School
Dame Silvia Cartwright will head the independent inquiry into abuse at Dilworth School.
Eleven men linked to Dilworth School have been charged over historical assault, totalling over 50 separate charges. Three have pleaded guilty and two have been sentenced to prison.
Dame Silvia, a former Governor-General and hight court judge, led the inquiry into the Earthquake Commission's handling of the Canterbury earthquake claims, and the 1988 Cartwright Inquiry into cervical cancer treatment at Auckland's National Women's Hospital.
Dilworth Trust Board said the inquiry was due to start on 1 July. Terms of reference had been finalised following consultation with old boy survivors, those affected by abuse and the wider school community.
