We call on our compassionate community to help reunite our Foundation teacher Ms Londa James with her family: Ms Londa’s 8 year old daughter Paeton and husband Theo are being refused entry to Australia due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Imagine having your 8 year old child in another country, with days left to fly out to be with you, and then suddenly being told “Sorry, the borders are closed.”
Now imagine applying for an exception on compassionate grounds with the Department of Home Affairs only to denied because it doesn’t fit their criteria for compassionate grounds.
This is exactly what happened to one of our beloved teachers from Al Siraat College, Ms Londa James.
Her 8 year old daughter Paeton and husband Theo were granted a Visa earlier this year. They were scheduled to travel in Australia to be with Ms James in April. Sadly since Australian borders were closed due to Covid-19, not only have Ms James’ family not been able to fly out to Australia but we are now told she may not see her daughter for another year.
