Santa Teresa school principal dies in triple fatality car crash

Two school principals from  Indigenous Catholic Community Schools were killed yesterday morning in a triple fatality on Tiger Brennan Drive in Darwin.
One was Greg Crowe, principal of the Ltyentye Apurte Catholic School in Santa Teresa in Central Australia.  He was aged 72.
The other was the principal of Murrupurtiyanuwu Catholic Primary School in Wurrumiyanga on Bathurst Island, aged 50.  She had been principal for nearly 23 years. He name was not released for cultural reasons.
Bishop Eugene Hurley (pictured) said: “We are deeply saddened by this tragic accident where the lives of three people were taken.  Two were principals who we knew and loved well and the third was a taxi driver whose family I don’t know.
“The community of Wurrumiyanga has lost a school principal and a leader in her own community.
“Santa Teresa has lost a principal and a much-loved member of the community. He has worked as principal for the past five years.”

  1. Deeply saddened by this tragic accident. Our thoughts, deepest sympathy and prayers are extended to the Crowe family and all the members of the Santa Teresa and Bathurst Island communities.

  2. I had the pleasure of knowing Greg for many of the almost 20 years I’ve lived here in Alice. He was a work colleague in a variety of roles around health & education programs over the years. A truely gifted and remarkable man who held a deep passion for the people with whom he worked and the community in which he served. Greg’s tragic loss is one so many will feel as his contribution to humanity was so strong. His legacy will live on in the hearts of those many who loved him and respected his achievements. Vale, Greg Crowe.

  3. Words cannot describe how we are all feeling. So, so, sorry for all the people who are suffering from this horrific event. May you find peace in the memories that they left behind and joy in your heart on what they did for everyone they touched. RIP.
