Remembering Queen Elizabeth II
Friday 09 September 2022
AASA are extremley saddened by the news of Queen Elizabeth II's death. In school today we have reflected on this sad news for us all and thought about the special person that the Queen has been and the great impact that her reign has had on our country, the commonwealth and the world.
It has been annouced that Monday 19 September, the date of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral, will be a national bank holiday and so the Academy will be closed to Scholars and Staff for the day. Please see the letter sent home to parents below.
In gratitude we bid farewell to a greatly loved Queen.
For her grace, humanity and sympathy,
for her courage in adversity, for the happiness she brought to so many,
for her steadfast pilgrimage of faith,
for her example of service,
and for the duty which she rendered unflinchingly to her country,
we thank and praise Almighty God.
As we commend Elizabeth, his servant, to God's mercy,
let us especially pray for her family in their loss.
