As some of you may already be aware, over the holidays there was a tragic road accident involving the family of one of our pupils. The parents of Ananya, now in year 5, were both killed in this incident and while Ananya herself survived, she was seriously injured and remains in hospital in India. She is currently undergoing treatment but remains in a critical condition.
We felt it was important to share this sad news with you as part of our school community. If you haven’t already done so and feel it is appropriate, this would also give you an opportunity to discuss this with your children. We will, of course, be providing support for all pupils and staff at this difficult time.
As a school, we will remain in contact with Ananya through friends and relatives both here and in India. There will also be an opportunity for children to send their best wishes to her. We will keep you updated with any further news we receive.
For the benefit of parents who do not receive email, we will also write to all parents tomorrow. If you know anyone who has not already heard this news, I would be very grateful if you are able to contact them to pass on this message.
