  • Emily Turnbull


    You may well be aware by now of the tragic news that our Year 12 student, Emily Turnbull, died a fortnight ago.  Emily was a lovely girl and valued member of our school community.  Her death comes as a shock to us all.


    We have spoken to all students in school about Emily’s death and stressed that we will support each other at this difficult time.


    The school is being supported over the coming days and weeks by our psychology support services, and come the summer break we will ensure everyone knows what support is available whilst school is closed.


    Our thoughts and condolences are with Emily’s family and her many friends.
