In memory of Ellie McDonnell

14th Sep 2020

The entire Down High School community is shocked and devastated by the tragic death of Year 12 pupil Ellie McDonnell at the weekend after recent surgery. Ellie’s presence in school will be missed terribly by her teachers and many friends. We will treasure the precious memories we have of Ellie, as an exceptional student, a star of the school’s equestrian team but mostly as a young person with remarkable kindness, courage and generosity of spirit.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Ellie’s parents, brother, the wider family circle and her close friends at this devastating time.
