Book of Condolence

Our book of condolence for HRH Queen Elizabeth II is now on display in our school reception area. All of the children wrote messages, prayers and shared their thoughts about our late Queen.

Thank you Ma’am

Friday, 9 September 2022

Today we held a special gathering to celebrate the life and service of the Queen. We shared videos and photos of her life and prayed for her family who will be missing her. To respect this period of mourning we have changed our listening music to remind us of how the Queen was chosen by God to serve the people and that we will miss her.
