It has been a terrible day after a terrible weekend...

"Tonight I must write the saddest lines."

Over the weekend we had our first case of swine flu affecting a colleague at Parklands Girls High School and an ex-student from Guiseley School died after falling into the River Wharfe at a local beauty spot called Loop Scar. Then this morning a young student from Morley High School was killed in a road accident when a car mounted the pavement and hit her as she walked to school.

What a terrible loss; two young lives ended just as they were beginning, two school communities having lost talented young learners with enormous potential and two families this evening facing the world without two very special young people. It is impossible to imagine the loss, the sadness and the grief they must be feeling and our deepest sympathies go to them all.
