Oh that's awful sad

What age/yr group are they?

Did you know the girl well?

Yes, best not to make it too identifying.


When I was about that age a girl in my yr group died unexpectedly and traumatically.

On the day we went back to school we were all allowed to be together in the 6th form common room [we weren't 6th formers] I know that our school had sought advice from bereavement counsellors on how to deal with the situation.

They advised us being able to be together and just 'be' I suppose and talk.

I expect your school will do similar?

When I was 14, a friend died from leukaemia. She'd been having time on and off for a while so when we didn't see her for two weeks, thought nothing of it.

One morning the principal came to my class and called a group of her friends to her room. She broke the news and read from John Chapter 11 v25 (it was a church school). To this day it's the only verse from the Bible I can quote.

My group of friends were then given permission to leave school and visit the girl's parents. It really helped.

So sorry x

Thoughts are with everyone affected.
When I was at secondary one of the older girls that helped our class died of sudden death syndrome. I can still remember her face more than 30 years later, she was a beautiful girl.
I check my own DSs every night and every morning to check their breathing. Wen DS1 is late getting up, and doesn't answer, I check his breathing.
I can't think of anything worse that could happen than losing one of your babies. sad
