    When our children attended Beaconsfield kindergarten together and we met, I met the most positive, kind and caring soul. You always had a smile on your face and showed me true strength throughout life’s challenges. I am so thankful to have met you and our kids shared so many wonderful memories together in their Primary school journey .

  41. Sending our heartfelt condolences to Penny’s incredible family. Penny was one of the strongest people we’ve ever met and we are deeply saddened to hear of her passing. We met Penny through relay and the event simply will not be the same without her. Penny always commended the committee on being the heart of the event but in all honesty if we were the heart, people like Penny are the life blood that keep us pumping. Nothing was too much and she threw her hand up to everything. We’ve never met someone so determined. We will miss her dearly and remember her fondly.
