A pedophile at the centre of a South Australian State Government controversy worked at an Adelaide Catholic school for almost five years before he was convicted, it has emerged, reports Adelaidenow.
Catholic Education SA has written to parents at the school after being informed by the Government on Friday night that Mark Christopher Harvey was a former employee.
Harvey was convicted in February this year of unlawful sexual intercourse with a girl in late 2010 at an out-of-school hours care program he ran at a public school.
Parents were not told of the incident until last Friday, sparking public outrage and prompting the government to launch an independent investigation.
Catholic Education provided a copy of the letter to Adelaidenow but removed the name of the Catholic school involved.
The letter says Harvey worked at an out-of-school hours care program at the Catholic school from May to December 2000.
