On the 9th September Queen Elizabeth II passed away peacefully at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. There are many staff, students and parents who have grown up with Elizabeth as their Queen and were deeply moved by the news. We at IES Kungsbacka have flown the Official flag of Great Britain and Northern Ireland at half mast as a sign of respect and to honour her 70 years as sovereign. We also have a memory wall where students and staff can write up condolences and look at images and news items from her reign. Many at IES Kungsbacka have been moved and we are there to support.
