551. Sunshine Boys Hostel

Sunshine Boys Hostel – founded in 1959 – was housing boys who were ‘not normally acceptable in the hostels conducted by voluntary organizations, who have no interested parents or other relatives, and who require something more than the usual help and supervision, as regards employment and leisure’.

It sounded very beutiful. However David Whitcroft who also was employed at Geelong College was sentenced for five counts of sexual penetration with a 14-year-old ward of the state at the hostel.

It could not have been a fun place to be as a teenager.
