Support if needed

You may be aware of a tragic incident that occurred over the weekend that has gravely impacted a family within our community.

Many in our school community will be saddened by this incident so I encourage all of us to support each other.  Education Directorate has extended condolences to the family and our thoughts are with the family as well as with the members of our community.  

The school is ensuring that staff members have the needed support in managing their grief and we are enclosing information on grief as a resource for you.  When the school resumes in Term 1, school psychologist will be available for any additional support that might be required by the school community. 

Please contact me by email at: Shannon.Carnovale@ed.act.edu.au if you would like to talk about this further. Contacting school staff is an important way of ensuring you receive consistent and accurate information and for us to be aware of all parent concerns.

We also encourage families to participate in pleasant activities and maintain a regular routine where possible at this time.

The following telephone hotlines are also available if you wish to speak with someone. 

  • Grief line 1300 845 745 (landlines only) Midday to 3am AEST, 7 days a week
