Dozens of students, teachers, and parents gathered at Providence Christian College in Perth on Thursday, offering flowers, toys, and letters expressing their grief.

Classmates left handmade gifts and heartbreaking messages, including one from a young girl who wrote: ‘Miss you Aiden. This is a toy for you to have in heaven. Love you.’

The school’s principal was among those at the memorial on Thursday, visiting the site and reading the tributes before school started.

Parents arrived hand-in-hand with their children as they paid tribute and added teddy bears to the sea of flowers and toys.

One child wrote a heartwrenching card saying he hoped Aiden ‘comes back alive’.

‘I feel so sad. I wish you were here because there are so many questions I need answered,’ one child wrote.

‘I hope that you will come back, I really like you and I feel really sorry for you.’ 

 Other students simply wrote they would miss their friends.

A close friend of the mother suspected of killing herself and the children said ‘everything was perfect’ in the lead-up to the tragedy. 

Sam Revington said he visited the ‘happy’ family at their Canning Vale home in Perth‘s south mere days before the incident. 

‘She gave us coffee and everything. Everything was normal,’ he told the West Australian. ‘She was laughing, smiling. Everything was perfect’.

Mr Revington said the family, who relocated to Perth from Melbourne in 2015, had been content with their life in the western state. 

‘We couldn’t find any reason for this to happen. They had a good life. She was a lovely lady and he is a nice man,’ he said of the couple.

The children’s devastated father Selvan Govindhan-Vairavan was due to land in Perth on Wednesday night. 

He received the life-changing news while on a flight to the United States where he intended to visit his brother. 

Both he and his wife were employed at Fiona Stanley Hospital, where Ms Doreswamy was a nurse and Mr Govindhan Vairava a lead anaesthetist technician.

The shocking tragedy rocked the tight-knit Canning Vale community, with friends describing the family as ‘happy’ and ‘normal’.

Locals will offer their support to Mr Govindhan-Vairavan as he attempts to process the loss of his esteemed wife and two young children.

A memorial has been set up at the kid’s school Providence Christian College as tributes continue to stream in for the beloved students. 

Devastated friends have left bouquets of flowers, photos, and tennis balls in honour of the family at a makeshift shrine outside the school. 

Hand-written tributes to the two siblings taken far too soon have been posted outside a building on campus, with many vowing to ‘remember’ the children forever.

‘You inspired me (in) many ways, are a beautiful person. Always shining bright and being lovely,’ one card left for Abiyah read.

Another friend described the 10-year-old as the ‘brightest light of the world’, while a one pupil said Aiden would be ‘missed’.

Principal Bill Innes was forced to deliver the heartbreaking news to students on Wednesday, something he said you could ‘never be prepared for’.

He said the ‘lovely’ family had had a big presence on the school campus and said he planned to visit the children’s father in the coming days. 

‘I don’t know what to tell him. I don’t have words to explain or comfort him,’ he said. 

It is understood the children’s school is offering counselling services to everyone affected by the incident.

The mother and two children were discovered in a burnt out red Honda Jazz in a Coogee car park in Perth’s south around 11.45am on Monday by emergency services responding to reports of a vehicle on fire.

Police on Tuesday said they were treating the deaths as a murder-suicide, and while other alternatives had not been ruled out by detectives, it was ‘very, very unlikely there is a third party involved’.
