Staff, students and governors at St Edmund Arrowsmith Catholic Centre for Learning in Whiston are coming to terms with the tragic death of their Principal, Mr Martyn Campbell, after a long and brave battle with illness. This comes just days after the tragic sudden death of Sean Gillies, Year 11 student. Sean died at home on Saturday 11 June 2016.
This is an incredibly difficult time for our school community as we mourn the loss of a much loved colleague and friend, and a lively, bright and very popular student.
Both will be missed immensely by both staff and students, and we feel privileged to have been a part of their lives.
This week we have spent time together in form groups to reflect on the lives of Mr Campbell and Sean, and pray for them and their families. Each year group have had special assemblies with Julie, our Chaplain, to pray together for Mr Campbell, Sean and their family and friends.
