Dear Parent / Carer
I am writing with the very sad news of the sudden death last week of Chaela Siqueira, a much loved member of staff at Holy Trinity. Ms Siqueira was a dedicated and highly valued teaching assistant and all of us at Holy Trinity have been deeply affected by her loss. We are in close contact with the family and doing all we can to support them.
Ms Siqueira was popular and active in our local community and we know many families are already aware of the sad news. However, if your child does not yet know, it would be helpful if you could speak to them before they return to school next Wednesday so that they hear the news from a trusted adult. Teachers will be speaking to all the classes next Wednesday morning and we will be offering support for children in school.
We know that Ms Siqueira was well loved by many parents. We will be opening our church on the first morning of the new term where there will be a quiet space to remember her. A member of staff will be available to talk to there.
I will be writing to you again at the beginning of term to give you more news. In the meantime, I know you will join us in keeping Ms Siqueira and her family in your thoughts and prayers
