Scarlett Finney
Australia Crest

There were plenty of scarlet faces at The Hills Grammar School in Sydney when in July, 1999, 7 year old Scarlett, who suffers from spina bifida, and her parents took on the might of the school in the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission.

Scarlett won the day and it was interesting to see that Graeme Innes, the Commissioner who heard the case, is blind.

Afterwards Scarlett, 7 going on 37, said "I just want to say that because I've won it's a happy day for me and other children with disabilities".

Scarlett is being handled by Mr. 25% Harry M Miller. There's not only red faces but gold in them thar' hills.
