Queen Elizabeth II (21 April 1926 - 08 September 2022)
At St George's, we are deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II
At St George's, we are deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Our thoughts and condolences are with The King, and The Royal Family at this time. Her Majesty devoted her life to public service and made an immeasurable contribution to the lives of many.
May Her Majesty Rest in Peace, and Rise in Glory.
The school will enter a period of mourning for ten days. There will be very few changes to school life during this national period of mourning. However, it is right and proper for a Church of England School to show leadership for the local community in such times. The staff meetings will be cancelled on Thursdays as a small mark of respect, and to allow for private thought and prayer. Furthermore, a book of condolence will be placed on a decorative table on the junior playground for any member of the school, or local community, to pay respects.... which in turn will provide a source of Primary Historical Evidence as to how the local community responded. The laying of the book will be the first, and last thing that our site manager does each day until the funeral.
This area, in front of our Christian Faith Graffiti wall will be a focal point for private prayer, or private reflection should any of you wish to lay flowers there. Flowers will be cleared at 8am on the day of the funeral.
An online Book of Condolence for those who wish to leave messages is available on the royal.uk website.
