Some very sad news – passing of Year 12 Galen student Luke Grant

Dear Galen Parents/Guardians,

It is with great sadness that I am emailing you as our Galen Catholic Community mourns the death of Year 12 student, Luke Grant, who passed away yesterday evening.

Galen is a tight knit community and the loss of a student is felt deeply by all.  Our hearts go out to the Grant family and they are in the thoughts and prayers of the entire community at this very sad time.

We ask you to pray for Luke’s friends and family, especially his parents, siblings and friends. We also ask that you take good care of each other as we come to terms with this tragic loss in our community.

All Galen students will be informed of Luke’s passing this morning in homeroom. I have attached the document (download here) that the homeroom teacher will be reading to all homeroom students this morning. There will then be a Prayer Liturgy for all Year 12 students and Luke’s homeroom class at 9am.  

Your child may feel upset today as a result of the news and may want to contact you or ask that you pick them up. As mentioned in the attached document we will have our Chapel and Wellbeing Centre available to our students to access as well as a parent room in the main office if parents wish to attend.  

We ask that you keep the whole Galen community and in particular Luke’s family in your prayers at this time.

May Luke rest in peace.

Kind regards,
Bernard Neal
