Letter to Editor
In the May edition of the Galston, Glenorie & Hills Rural Community News there was an article on the academic side of the Galston High School. I would like to tell you of another side.
It was on the 10th April this year after the school's Anzac Remembrance Day where the Rowland Village choir sang. My husband and I belong to this choir.
After the service, my husband tripped down some steps onto the path below. Within minutes the School Captain, Chloe, and Vice Captain, Caitlin, were beside him kneeling, as he had fallen on his head. With cold compresses, the girls took turns in attending to his forehead. I am sure if they had not been so quick, his injuries would have been more serious.
The music teacher, Janet, kept me company, rang our daughter and the ambulance to take him to hospital where he spending the night. It took a long time for the injury to heal.
I am sure their Principal, Jill Tourlas, was very proud of the attention given to us. I must say it is also a very caring school, as well as academic.
