GLA tribute to Queen Elizabeth II

Friday 9th September 2022
Dear Parents, Carers and Colleagues,
In light of the very sad announcement last night concerning the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, we are writing to you to express our sadness and deep respect for a remarkable life lived, dedicated to duty and serving the people of this country and commonwealth. In this respect, she was an example to be admired.
This is an historic event as well as an emotional one. Our schools will work with the children and communities to support not only their emotional needs but to recognise Queen Elizabeth and her part in our history and the significant role she carried out for seven decades. Individual schools will provide information and guidance.
We believe that there will be a day of national mourning and this may well be declared a public holiday. It has been suggested this may be Monday 19th September however we await official announcements. If this is a public holiday, then schools and offices will be closed. There will be future announcements around the coronation of King Charles III and other events in due course.
In the meantime, I am sure you will join us in expressing our sincere condolences to the Royal Family and all those who mourn the passing of our Queen.
Kindest regards
Steve Savory and Claire Savory
