Along with millions of others we were devastated by the events near Parliament Square in London on Wednesday 22nd March 2017. The students took time in their tutor groups to compile a book of condolence and to send messages of support via the Mayor of London to those who were most closely affected by this tragedy.
Last week we received a reply from Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London. The text of his letter is as follows:
Dear Maiden Erlegh School,
I wanted to write to you to express, on behalf of Londoners, my heartfelt thanks to you for taking the time to compile a book of condolence following the horrific events near Parliament Square on Wednesday 22nd March.
This was not only an attack on our city and our country, but on the very heart of our democracy and the symbol of the values we cherish most - democracy, freedom, justice and tolerance. These are the same values that those who attack us hate so much. And the best way we can honour those who have tragically lost their lives is to ensure that we always uphold these values. This is why I was so heartened to read your messages of support and the use of the slogan #WeStandTogether.
On behalf of all Londoners, I want to thank you all for your messages of support.
Thank you again for taking the time to write.
Mayor of London
