    As you may be aware, Aspect Macarthur School has been involved in an investigation following allegations from a parent dating back to 2012-2013.

    The investigation was conducted by the New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA) in 2016 and these are the results.

    We took this investigation very seriously because, at all our Aspect Schools, the safety and wellbeing of our students are our top priorities. So, this was an opportunity for us to learn and further improve.
