On Rob Hunter’s ninth day of teaching, Edwin John Eastwood burst into his remote South Gippsland school of Wooreen and at gun point took Rob and his nine students hostage.
In his seminar, Health After Hurt, kidnapped teacher and author Rob Hunter, retells the story of the Wooreen State School kidnapping of 1977 and the after affects. The presentation gives first hand insight into the trauma experienced by the victims, of heroism and bravery, along with the health and healing that is possible from such pain and torment.
Students are given practical tools to cope with their own hurts and traumas.
