The North Coast Children’s Home in Lismore was a hellhole. Kids were flogged with broomsticks, canes, pony whips and belts. They were locked in cupboards and made to stand for ages on one leg. If they fell over they were belted. The Royal Commission turns its attention to the Home this November with more public hearings. The Anglican Diocese of Grafton will be under the spotlight. Many hope the hearings will lead to apologies and proper compensation for the victims.
