SPREADING LOVE NOT HATE

Year 9 and 11 students listened to Margaret Mizen and her son Danny today speak about the death of 16 year old Jimmy today, March 11, in two special assemblies in school when the theme of the talks was forgiveness and love.

Margaret is a regular visitor to school but this is the first time Danny has visited.

He spoke openly about the day he discovered his younger brother had died at the hands of bully Jake Fahri and the aftermath of the tragedy as well as his coming to terms with what happened.

The students were reminded that violence and knives only bring misery and destruction to people’s lives. Violence, intimidation and bullying can never be seen as acceptable and Margaret spoke about how  her deep faith ultimately helped her to forgive Jimmy’s murderer.

Students went away feeling hopeful and with plenty to think about.
