EATHAN Jackson-Cook, you're not alone.

The sole survivor of an horrific accident marked his 12th birthday yesterday, just days after his family was taken from him.

Eathan's 30-year-old mum Keisha Ann Jackson, his 10-year-old brother Ryan Jackson-Cook and seven-year-old sister Joan Jackson were killed in a car crash at Glenview on Friday night.

His four-year-old sister Matilda Jackson-Cook was taken to Royal Brisbane Hospital in a critical condition and on Sunday night her life support was turned off.

Despite the incredible grief, Eathan's grandparents, aunties and uncles celebrated his birthday with him to remind him that he has their support.

Some of the police officers who attended the crash scene on Friday night also dropped in to wish him a happy birthday.

Eathan's classmates and teachers are reeling from the news and are worried about their friend and student.

Kawana Waters State College principal Paul Williamson said he had learned Eathan was in hospital on Saturday and made a special visit to see him.

"That was to be my focus, around the family, and make sure Eathan wasn't feeling alone and isolated," he said.

"I went up to the hospital, introduced myself to the uncle and aunt who were there.

"They were going through huge, unbelievable issues at that time.

"I sought their permission to have some staff members visit, which they allowed."

Mr Williamson said the school had offered counselling to staff and students for as long as they needed it, with special attention paid to Year 6.

"It's early days but they seem to be travelling okay," he said.

"The support is certainly in place across all year levels.

"The one that we're putting more intense support into is probably the Year 6s.

"These are kids a little bit older and they're worried about Eathan and quite rightly.

"We're trying to assure him that we're all here and we're going to wrap him up and that's what every parent that I've spoken to says: 'We're here to look after Eathan now.'"

The greater Coast community also expressed a desire to help Eathan and make a donation to the family.

Through the Daily, the family has asked that residents give to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital by calling 1300 363 786.

In the wake of the devastating tragedy, the family has asked to be left alone so they can move on and help raise Eathan.
