HM Queen Elizabeth II


Proclaimed Queen at the age of 23,

A leader for over 70 years,

Served by 15 Prime Ministers


A constant in a world of turmoil.  A shining example of how to live a life and devote yourself to selfless service. 

Her Majesty embodied the spirit of the nation, and together with millions around the world, we mourn the loss of the longest reigning Monarch. 

Students have taken the time to reflect and recognise the incredible service that Her Majesty gave the country for over 70 years. 

Queen Elizabeth set an example to us all to be kind, and we encourage our students to learn from her example.

Our thoughts are with all members of the Royal Family at this time.

Rest in Peace, Your Majesty.
