  7. I was a victim of Michael Slater’s at Elizabeth Park School in Uplands in 1979/1980. I am gleeful that he finally got what was coming to him, although I do not think that the punishment is even nearly adequate. I also heard a lot more stories from students in his 1978/1979 class. I wish I could name names, but of course I cannot on this forum. He tormented me for months; I applaud those courageous enough to have come forward. He is a despicable man, no matter how chummy and “cool” he tried to be to his favourite students.
