Message from the Principal

March 7, 2018

To our Thorhild Central School family,

As you may be aware, our school is grieving the loss of one of our students, who passed away this morning as a result of a collision involving a school bus. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the student’s family, friends, and the entire Thorhild Community at this incredibly difficult time.

Additional counselling supports have been brought into the school to assist all students and staff. We pledge to continue to provide supports to all our students and staff in the days and weeks ahead.  More information on ways to support individuals through their grief will be shared in the coming days.

Throughout the day, we have spoken to each class individually about this morning’s tragedy. Everyone responds to tragedy and grief in their own way. We encourage parents and caregivers to talk with and be present for their children during this difficult time.  Please contact us if your family would like to access the supports available through the school and community.

Thorhild Central School is a close-knit family and this tragedy fills us all with an immeasurable sense of loss. Together we will support and comfort everyone in our community through this difficult time.

Thanks and take care,

Kim Carson
