Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II – State Funeral

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II – State Funeral

Dear parents and carers,

Following the announcement from Buckingham Palace of the death of our sovereign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, a period of National Mourning has started and will continue until the end of the State Funeral. This is a period of time for reflection in response to the death of the Sovereign.

The official date of the State Funeral is 19 September 2022. This day will be a bank holiday and St Raphael’s, as all schools, will be closed on this day as a mark of respect. 

School will then reopen as usual on Tuesday, 20th September.

We are remembering Queen Elizabeth II and the royal family in our prayers at school.

Kind regards,

Mrs Lakner
