Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh died on Friday 9th April 2021.
As a Church school we offer our most sincere condolences to our Supreme Governor - the Queen and other members of the Royal Family.
As we give thanks to God for the life of a Prince Philip and his years of selfless service to our country, we take inspiration and comfort from St Paul’s first letter to Timothy as we support our Christian community in traveling forward.
‘I urge, then first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. ‘ Timothy 2:2-1
In school, this week, we will be celebrating his life and achievements through our worship.
Please join us in praying for the Queen and the Royal Family during this difficult period of mourning:
God of our lives,
we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for the love he shared among us, and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy, through our Redeemer Jesus Christ.
"The Queen has been pleased to declare her will and pleasure that His 'Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh shall henceforth be known as His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh," the palace said in a statement on Feb. 22, 1957
