Woman jailed for threatening Gold Coast school

A woman who made threats to a northern Gold Coast school has been jailed for 20 months.

36-year-old Stacey Jaundrell today pleaded guilty in the Southport Magistrates Court to 12 charges including unlawful stalking, using a carriage service to menace and harass and disturbing an educational facility.

Upper Coomera State College was placed into lockdown twice in June after threats were made online.


The court heard Jaundrell created a fake Facebook profile and threatened to ‘shoot up the school’ in June.

Police swarmed the school while parents were notified of the incident via text message.

Magistrate Donald Mackenzie described Jaundrell’s actions as ‘deceptive and conniving’ and were extremely serious.

The court was also told Jaundrell was trying to protect her daughter after claiming the school was not doing enough to stop her being bullied.

Lawyer Victoria Ward said Jaundrell was remorseful and suffered from a personality disorder.

She’ll be eligible for parole in December.
