Brave teachers honoured with awards

Five Perth teachers who tackled an armed woman to the ground then offered the intruder a cushion for her head until police arrived will be given bravery awards.


The women, who work at St Stephens School in Duncraig, have been honoured for their heroics after being confronted in February last year by a woman carrying a 27cm chopping knife.

The intruder seized a child by the arm at the school’s early learning centre, but released the student when challenged by Year 1 teacher Katherine Hilder.

Ms Hilder grabbed the intruder and subtly forced her out of the classroom, before being joined by four other teachers, one of whom grabbed the knife.
