Pupils at a prep school in Croxley have been paying tribute to Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with colourful artwork after the news of her death.
The pieces have been made to reflect what the monarch meant to them and the country as a whole, with words such as “inspirational” and “important” two of the ones most emblazoned on much of the art.
After it was announced that the Queen had passed away, students at York House attended a special assembly looking back on her reign and the impact she had on the world as both head of state and of the Commonwealth. This presentation was organised by head of history , Dr Glencross, himself an expert in the constitutional monarchy.
A special leather-bound book of condolences written by students has also been made along with the artwork, which will form a special memorial for the late monarch.
Headteacher at the school Jon Gray said: “We are deeply saddened to have said goodbye to a most incredible and inspirational monarch.
“The news of the Queen’s passing has had a profound effect on our community and the pupils have been passionate about sharing their condolences and about expressing what having a role model like the Queen meant to them.”
