Chloe Polkinghorne in Year 10 was awarded a Principal’s Commendation on Friday 24 February for saving her father’s life.

Chloe received the certificate for being extremely brave and administering CPR on her father, Peter Polkinghorne, after he suffered a near fatal heart attack. She jumped to the aid of her father after he collapsed, and administered CPR for a solid 20 minutes all alone. When a neighbour arrived to help Chloe, they took it in turns to continue the CPR in 5 minute intervals each until the ambulance arrived.

Paramedics said that the courageous action by Chloe successfully ensured that not only did her father recover from the heart attack; he also did not lose vital oxygen to the brain or suffer dangerous side effects.

Congratulations go to Chloe for her bravery, and our best wishes to her family.
