Let­ter to Ed­i­tor

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Community News -

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.
