Princethorpe Remembers Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
On Friday 9 September at 10.40am, the College community gathered together on the school playground to remember Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Headmaster, Ed Hester, addressed the whole school community, he spoke movingly about the Queen’s early years as a child, her ascension to the throne and her many years of unstinting dedication to her country. He shared his own memories of her Silver Jubilee and reflected on the many changes the world has seen during her long reign.
The Heads of School, Freya Mills and Pratheesh Prabakaran, led the school in prayers for Her Majesty before the school observed a one-minute silence. Following the National Anthem, Mr Hester closed the assembly with a prayer for our new king, His Majesty King Charles III, as he takes up his new duties.
Across the school, the Union Flag is flying at half-mast as a sign of respect for Her Majesty and in the Cloister Corridor, beneath a portrait of the Queen, there is a condolence table with flowers and a prayer.
The College joins the nation in mourning the loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and extends its heartfelt condolences and prayers to the Royal Family.
