Assumption College Kilmore

Assumption College (ACK) is an Australian Roman Catholic co-educational secondary day and boarding school. The school is located in the town of Kilmore, Victoria.

Founded in 1893 by the Marist Brothers, Assumption College first took boarders in 1901, in response to the educational needs of the Catholic families throughout regional Victoria and New South Wales. Assumption was established as a boys' school and this continued until 1971 when the school became co-educational. Female boarding commenced in 1995.

Assumption College has also seen its share of sexual misconduct by some of its Marist Brothers. One particular perpetrator has been Brother John Desmond Dyson who in 1997 was convicted of charges of having indecently assaulted three boys, aged 12 to 14, in the 1980s. The boys were boarders at the college where Dyson was a teacher. However, it must be noted that the three boys where not necessarily Dyson’s only victims – they were the only three who were interviewed by Victoria Police
