‘One day will not unravel years of love in our close-knit school’
NOTES of love and positivity have been posted around a Townsville primary school the morning after a shocking teacher stabbing rocked the school.
Yesterday morning, an armed 11-year-old girl was tasered after she allegedly stabbed a teacher with a knife at the Townsville primary school.
She has since been charged by police.
"It's times like this that the kind words and support offered by the many parents and friends of our school matter most," the school posted on their Facebook page this morning.
"These are received with much gratitude, empathy and mindfulness and will bolster the recovery of those directly affected. Kindness will always trump criticism."
A note to parents and carers from the school principal was sent home with students yesterday afternoon after the incident, which read:
"Dear parents and caregivers,
