Remembering our friend

Shona’s Garden

You may have noticed that the Shona White Memorial Garden has now been reinstated including the commemorative plaque. You can find the garden at the front of the school in the area by the Year 2 classrooms. Shona was a pupil at Glebe but sadly she developed a brain tumour when she was seven and after a valiant and brave fight passed away just before the end of her Year 4. We created a garden to remember her in an area outside, what is now, the Breakfast and After School Club Room. Sadly, it had to be removed when we had the building works but I am pleased to say that we carefully looked after the plaque and we were able to identify a suitable place on the new site to reinstate it. It includes some purple flowers as this was Shona’s favourite colour. Shona’s dad, Simon, has been in school this week with the Life Bus so was able to visit the garden. Shona’s best friend Sophie has also been in this week and demonstrated how quickly time flies by. She’s now in Year 12 (as Shona would have been) and was here to organise her work experience at the school as she wants to train to be a teacher!
