Our school community is deeply saddened by the passing of Max Capewell.
Mr Capewell was our school patron and has had a long association with the school. He has been the community representative on our School Council. Max also played the part of Santa at Reverse Santa for several years. His children and grandchildren attended our school and his association with the school has continued well beyond their time at Brisbania.
Ill-health over the last couple of years restricted his visits to the school but his presence was still evident. Mr Capewell loved our school and was a strong advocate for our students and staff. He will be remembered fondly by our older students, past students, staff and parents.
I have passed on our condolences, to Max's family, on behalf of the school community.
Max's funeral will be held on Friday at Palmdale. Details will be published in Wednesday's edition of the Central Coast Express.
