Ethel Temby (Hay ‘32) passed away in July 2012. Ethel was a fierce advocate for social justice, particularly in the area of developmental disability, for the environment and for human rights for asylum seekers. She was awarded a MBE in 1975, a Churchill fellowship in 1976 and a Centenary Medal in 2001. She placed great importance on education and training: ‘Each is extremely important. Not paper qualifications, but from listening to other’s points of view, asking questions, considering each of the answers, developing a personal set of values, including wisdom and compassion and that genuine empathy that can only come from having personally experienced a similar kind of experience, although reactions may be different.’ Ethel was a School Prefect, Vice-Captain of Anderson House and Librarian in 1932. She was a member of the General Committee and also the Sports mistress for a period of time.
