Two high school counsellors have been awarded almost $1.8m by the courts for the workplace stress they dealt with. Kath and Ron Cronin-Lampe were both counsellors at Melville High School in Hamilton between 1997 and 2012. They had to deal with 32 deaths during their time at the school, including suicides, car crashes, terminal illnesses and murder. Their lawyer Toby Braun spoke to Corin Dann.
