Ms RYAN — I would like to recognise the bravery and quick thinking of my seven-year-old constituent Jayde Romero from Heathcote. Earlier this month Jayde saw thick smoke pouring from her home and alerted a close family friend, Noel Land, who was looking after her and her five-year-old sister Courtney at the time. They were able to get to safety in time, but Jayde followed Noel back inside when he went to investigate the origins of the smoke to make sure he was okay. Even though she said she was 'a little bit scared' Jayde said she 'had a book, and it says in the book that you've got to tell an adult', and she wanted to make sure Noel would be okay. I commend Jayde for her courage in such a scary situation, and I look forward to visiting Heathcote Primary School next month to present her with a special bravery award.
