On behalf of all members of the Stonar School community, we would like to express our sincerest condolences to the Royal Family on the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
We are deeply saddened by the news and our thoughts are with all members of the Royal Family in this time of national mourning.
On her 21st birthday, the then Princess Elizabeth stated, “I declare before you all that my whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to your service.” We are inspired by the decades of selfless service that followed and by the determination and grace that characterised her seventy-year reign.
I know that we will be united in our sense of loss, but in celebration too, and we will continue to aspire to follow her example of kindness, resilience and commitment.
Matthew Way, Headmaster
