We often talk about our school community as a family but perhaps we don’t always fully appreciate the extent to which this is true. Over the last week since Adam’s death, our family has drawn close and shown just how strong, kind and supportive it is. Families, of course, should spend most of their time enjoying the good times and sharing happy moments, however, they also need to be there in the darker times and when things are not so good. The school staff and I have been truly overwhelmed by the support shown to us and our school community by so many people this week. It has not been an easy week but parents, former pupils, former members of staff, colleagues in other schools and members of the wider Perth community have cherished us and supported us to enable us to carry on.
So to everyone who has been in touch or done something to help, a huge thank you for being a part of the Craigclowan family.
