I want to take an opportunity to thank our entire school community for their support and kind words over the last week as we have mourned the loss of one of our students. While it has been a very difficult time emotionally, the support within our school including our Chaplaincy Leader Vito, our student services guidance counsellors as well as our board Psychologist and Social worker who have been on site all last week has been outstanding.
Chloe’s family held a memorial service on Sunday with a number of family and friends having an opportunity to share their respects. All Saints will have a memorial service this Wednesday, February 22nd at 6:00pm primarily for those who were not able to join the family on the weekend. We are inviting all members of our school community at that time. The family has very kindly allowed us to use some of the support material including a DVD and music that they included in their service on the weekend.
We recognize that grieving during this time is a very personal issue. We will continue to work with individual students who would like to speak to someone about how they are feeling. Students should speak to their counsellor about setting up time to chat. I would also encourage any parents/guardians to contact the school if there is some specific information you would like to share with an administrator or guidance counsellor.
