Our Secondary Principal Mr Oates was out early this week, giving his skateboard a workout at his local skate park. In addition to being very clever in both Chemistry and Physics, Mr Oates is a very capable surfer, and was enjoying recreational down-time before work.
Unlike water, concrete is not very forgiving. He fell while boarding, snapping the fibula in his left ankle. The pain of a broken ankle is well known amongst secondary staff. There is no shortage of empathy! Miss Phoebe and Mr Posthuma have both had recent ankle breaks.
Please join us in prayer, that his treatment will help facilitate a full and strong recovery.
