Govan Joliffe Byrne

On behalf of the whole school community, I wish to extend our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Govan Jolliffe Byrne. We cannot comprehend the terrible shock and grief they are feeling but we are keeping them in our thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time.

We are also deeply appreciative to the management and staff of the PSLC who, when news of the tragedy struck, opened their facilities for Govan’s school friends and members of the wider community to meet and support one another.

May Govan rest in peace.
