If you need or want help or any assistance


The tragic death of Bobbi-Anne McLeod is expected to make a significant impact on the community.

If you need or want help or any assistance surrounding the loss of Bobbi-Anne. I am aware that some will be upset and scared due to this tragic incident. For anyone who has learners speaking to them about this incident please be mindful:

That this type of incident is extremely rare
They have already arrested two people in connection with this incident which does indicate that the Police have strong evidence and hopefully have arrested the right people.
They should all be trying to share their concerns and feelings with the families, parents carers as well as ourselves etc.
We need to try and do our best to reassure learners, not cause further panic or upset. If anyone has any concerns regarding what to say to learners please let me know.
