We are all incredibly sad about the tragic passing of one of our much-loved students, Rhys Lloyd. Rhys was a brave, caring and resilient member of the OSSMA family. Rhys touched the hearts of so many people in our community and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends following this devastating news. Please take a moment to reflect on the loss of one of our own and help provide some comfort during this difficult time for Rhys’s family.
The children are likely to ask questions about Rhys and it is our view that these should be answered factually and honestly. During this distressing time, there may be feelings of anger, confusion and sadness that your child may experience. Our staff will always try to answer any questions that they might have, but you may also wish to talk to your child about their understanding and feelings at this time.
If there is anything that you or your child wishes to know from us, please do not hesitate to ask by ringing the school office.
