Students from Japan are currently on a 2 week study tour at Fairhills. Thank you to the families who are hosting. The students will participate in activities including attending classes, a Mayoral Reception at the City of Knox, excursions to Mountain Gate Primary School, Phillip Island, Queen Victoria Market & City Tour.
We would like to highlight the actions of one of our students who recently assisted a sight impaired elderly man who fell from the platform at Boronia station onto the tracks causing significant injuries. Following our student's good example, several other bystanders also jumped onto the track and together helped the injured man and carried him to safety before a train arrived. Our hero was Year 10 Fairhills student Rhyley Considine. As a school and community we are extremely proud of Rhyley. His example and care for others is something we are delighted to recognise. This week the elderly man's wife visited the school and presented Rhyley with a generous gift and thanked him on behalf of her family.
