THE MISSIONARY POSITION …A NONCE

Teacher struck off for sex with pupil had been working as a missionary

The religious organisation is undertaking an internal review into Ms Graham’s actions

A woman who was banned from teaching after she was pictured
in bed with a pupil had been working as a missionary to spread the word
of God among soldiers.

French teacher Isabelle Graham was dismissed from her post at
the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) on 31 August for
engaging in “sexual activity” with a 17-year-old pupil at a Travelodge
hotel in Edinburgh.

It has now emerged the
28-year-old had been doing work for the Soldiers’ and Airmen Scripture
Readers Association (SASRA), carrying out missionary work with soldiers.

Her name had appeared on the charity’s staff list as “donor relations officer”, but was removed following the allegations.

The Hampshire charity, which spreads the teaching of God among soldiers, is now conducting an internal review into the matter.

A spokesperson from the SASRA told The Independent: “Mrs
Wilkie has recently been employed as a part-time staff member with the
Soldiers’ and Airmen’s Scripture Readers Association (SASRA).

“SASRA is not in a position to rule on Mrs Wilkie’s conduct in her
previous employment. However, SASRA believes that allegations of this
nature should be taken seriously and is therefore undertaking an
internal review.

“Our primary concern remains the wellbeing of everybody under SASRA’s pastoral care and the distress caused to all involved.”

In response to the allegations made against her, Ms Graham claimed
she had no recollection of engaging sexually with the pupil because she
drank four glasses of wine.

She also maintained she was an “active and practising Christian” who
had been “waiting until marriage” to have sexual intercourse.

But Detective Sergeant Keith Miller, who investigated the incident
for Police Scotland, disputed this, stating: “Throughout the footage
there’s no sign Ms Graham is under the excessive influence of drugs or
alcohol.

“The way she moved and conducted herself suggested someone who was making conscious decisions.”

Ms Graham’s husband Andrew Wilkie, a training clergyman, is said to have stayed with her despite her alleged infidelity, and she has recently given birth to their first child.

Police Scotland formally investigated the incident, but chose not to pursue charges due to a lack of evidence.
