Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens Leader

There are times when the English language is inadequate to describe the overwhelming sadness we feel.  There are no words to name the heartbreak.

When innocent children suffer, even more so.

Today is such a day.

On behalf of the Tasmanian Greens, I want to join the Premier and Leader of the Opposition in expressing our deepest sorrow over the tragedy at Hillcrest Primary School.

We send love and strength to the families who have suffered unimaginable loss today, to the injured children, and grieving school community.

Rosalie and I also want to thank first responders to the scene and acknowledge the trauma they too are suffering.
