Our whole school community is shocked and devastated at the loss of our 2nd class pupil André Ladeiro. André joined us in September 2020, the very first day the school opened. From the day he started his journey with us, he brought joy into every room he entered. André was a bright, curious boy who above all else was unfailingly kind. André’s smile and personality lit up every room he entered, and every person he met was better for having met him.
We extend our deepest sympathies to his parents, Filipa & Cesar, his brother Tomás and all of André’s extended family and friends. You are all in our thoughts. André’s family have requested that we all understand their need for privacy at this difficult time.
Offers of support have been pouring in and are greatly appreciated. Our school has implemented our Critical Incident Management Plan. Psychologists from the National Educational Psychological Service (NEPS) are supporting and advising the school in our efforts to assist our school community at this time.
We would ask you to respect our privacy at this time.
Our hearts are broken. The world has lost an incredible young man.
André, you will never be forgotten.
May you rest in peace.
