On Tuesday May 16 Year 7
student, Sarah Grandcourt, received a “Certificate of Appreciation” from
the Minister for Health and Ambulance Services at an award ceremony in Cairns.
Sarah called 000 when her Grandmother fell 20m over a cliff edge at Halls Falls
(an isolated waterfall at Wondecla).
Sarah had to call 000 and down load an app so that emergency services
could find them – there were no adults just Sarah, her younger sister and a
friend. Well done Sarah for your bravery and initiative.
