Beech Hill College has learned of the death of our staff member Ms. Mona Clarke. This is a terrible tragedy for her family, our school and our community. We are deeply saddened by these events. Our sympathy and thoughts are with Mona’s family and friends.

Mona has been a teacher, Year Head and Guidance Counsellor in Beech Hill College for the past 32 years and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

The school has been in contact with her family and they have requested that we respect 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) and CMETB guidance counselling staff will be with the school all day, supporting and advising teachers in their efforts to assist our students at this time.

The school is open to parents to support them and to offer them advice and guidance.

Thank you.
