MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, October 16, 2008 5 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Students band together FIONA BRADY Susan Worrall as she appeared on social networking internet site Bebo. The scene last Friday. Our girls were remarkable in the strength and respectful concern they showed for Susan's family' ' MLC acting principal DI COTTRELL-DORMER STUDENTS at MLC Burwood have been offered counselling after the tragic death of Year 12 student Susan Worrall last week. The 18-year-old was found stabbed to death in her family's Moseley St home in Strathfield on Friday morning. Her 20-year-old sister Kathleen -- a former MLC student -- has been charged with murder in relation to her death. In a media statement, the school's acting principal Di Cottrell-Dormer said it had been a very difficult time for everyone at the school. ''All MLC staff have met to prepare for their roles in support- ing our girls as well as each other, through this phase of shock and grieving,'' Ms Cottrell-Dormer said. The day after Susan's death Year 12 students had met for a prayer service in the school's chapel, she said. ''Our girls were remarkable in the strength and the respectful concern they showed for Susan's family and her close friends. ''Susan and Kathleen's father, John Worrall, and many Year 12 parents attended the service. ''Friends of Susan's sister Kathleen, from Year 12, 2005, also attended the service.'' Ms Cottrell-Dormer said the school was doing what it could to help students through each day. ''Classroom teachers and senior staff have explained to our younger girls what has happened and answered questions with sen- sitivity,'' she said. ''We have arranged for counsell- ing services to be available over the next few weeks for girls wish- ing to talk to someone about how they are feeling.'' ''Our Year 12 girls continue to impress us with their united care for each other, and their purpose as they continue to prepare for their final exams during this time.'' Kathleen Worrall, who has not applied for bail, is currently being held in Silverwater Women's Cor- rectional Centre, where she is believed to be under medical supervision. She was due to appear via video- link in Burwood Local Court on Wednesday, after the Inner-West Weekly went to press. Accolade for role model SILVERWATER'S Machinery Automation and Robotics (MAR) business has cleaned up the over- all Telstra Business Awards nation-wide when it was crowned the 2008 Telstra Australian Busi- ness of the Year. Telstra CEO Sol Trujillo awarded the team their golden prize of $25,000 in cash and prizes. They were congratulated by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd at the gala awards dinner last week. Machinery Automation and Robotic's win comes 21 years after its founder Clyde Campbell started the business with one person, a tool box and a dream, along with a vision to deliver manufacturing solutions that in- corporate advanced robotics for production critical industries. Today the business has grown to employ a team of 47 staff servicing clients across the globe, from its offices in NSW, Victoria and Queensland. ''Passion rules in business -- without it, you wont succeed,'' Mr Campbell said. ''We have a passionate, ener- gised team that are proud to work for us and really care about what they do, and it makes all the difference.'' The PM said the collaboration between Telstra and Austrade would ensure the country's top achievers who export could get the help they needed to take their business to compete on the world stage. Mr Trujillo said Machinery Automation and Robotics was a role model for other small and medium businesses.
