PAT CRONIN FOUNDATION

PAT CRONIN FOUNDATION

On Friday 16 August, all students in Years 8 to 12 listened to a thought provoking talk regarding the Pat Cronin story and the Pat Cronin Foundation’s message to End the Coward Punch.

Education Manager, Ben O’Toole delivered the school session.  As a coward punch victim in 2007, Ben also shared his story to help inspire students to choose non-violence in times of conflict.

Ben has shared his story in more than 300 presentations to over 35,000 students across the country, empowering many young Australians to see violence through his eyes.

PAT CRONIN’s STORY

On Saturday 16 April 2016, Pat went out to a local bar / café for a quiet night and he was punched from behind whilst assisting a mate. He was later taken to hospital and two days later we made the agonising decision to turn off his life support system.

Quietly spoken and gentle natured but with a fierce determination, Pat was enormously popular and had a deep love for his family and friends. His death has left a gaping hole in our lives and caused devastation amongst not only us but also his friends and the broader communities in which we have been involved.

We are determined that Pat’s life be honoured and that no other family should face the devastation we now face as a result of his senseless death.

The first intention of the Pat Cronin Foundation is to honour Pat and everything we do will focus on that.

The secondary intention of the Pat Cronin Foundation is to prevent coward punch attacks and we will do this through:

Pat was a normal kid. We are just a normal family. We live in a normal suburb. If this can happen to us, it can happen to anyone.

Be Wise. There Is No Excuse.

END THE COWARD PUNCH

Poster 3The Story

This production is set in Egypt. The Egyptians have captured and enslaved Aida, an Ethiopian princess.  An Egyptian military commander, Radamès, struggles to choose between his love for her and his loyalty to the King of Egypt. To complicate the story further, the King’s daughter Amneris is in love with Radamès, although he does not return her feelings.
