Remembering Kara

Date: February 25, 2019    Posted by: Sue Wicks

Today, we celebrated the life of much-loved teacher Miss Kara Pylypiuk. 

 

The TAS Community is in mourning at the passing of our Miss P; and it was with great sadness that we paid our respects to her at a memorial service in our Bishop Centre today. TAS students honoured her with prayers and readings, and past students shared their stories of the massive impact she had on their lives. 

At the conclusion of the service, students, staff and guests were invited to light a candle in her honour.  

During the service, Mr Sjogren mentioned a benevolent fund for Arawyn, and we genuinely thank those who have generously enquired about this fund.  Befitting Kara’s passion for the reef, TAS has also set up the Kara Pylypiuk Memorial Coral Garden through the Reef Restoration Foundation.

This adopted ocean-based garden is part of the Great Barrier Reef at Fitzroy Island and forms part of the project to regenerate and recover our beautiful coral reefs.  An area we all know was close to Kara’s heart. 

Should you wish to contribute and expand this Memorial Garden, your donation can be made at any TAS reception.  For each $50, an additional piece of coral can be added creating an even greater coral garden in memory of Kara, but donations of any size are welcome.   

Donations received by Friday 5 March will form part of our TAS garden for Miss P.  Alternatively, your own individual donation can be made on the Reef Restoration Foundation’s website
