Myers faced 44 charges including indecent assault and sexual penetration of a child, pleading guilty to 12 of those charges against former students, six young boys from Trinity College as well as one of the student's brothers.

Trinity College have released a statement to families and members of the Trinity College Community. Principal Paul Clohesy stated the school community had been sickened by the abhorrent crimes.

"First and foremost, I would like to acknowledge and commend the bravery of the victims who came forward, to tell their story and to seek justice. As the principal of this school, I apologise unreservedly to the victims, their families and all close to them, for the pain and suffering caused.

"As a school community...we stand with the victims, survivors and others impacted by these terrible events. We support all processes that hold those accountable for abusing the vulnerable and betraying the positions of authority they were entrusted with, when employed at Trinity College Colac.

"We encourage any individual who may have information in relation to the historical or current abuse of children to contact Victoria Police. Should they wish to do so, I invite any current or former student or family member who would like to discuss any matters relating to historical criminal acts associated with past students of this College to contact me. Please be assured of our ongoing support and care for our whole Trinity community, past and present."

The now 74 year old Myers was extradited from Queensland and remains in custody until he's sentenced on March 10.
