Castell Alun High School has thanked everyone for their “support and concern in such trying times” following the tragic death of one it’s students last week. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Chantelle Jones, a year nine pupil at the Flintshire Hogh School passed away unexpectedly on Thursday (October 1). ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Mr Paul Edwards, Acting Headteacher at Castell Alun High School – “Our school family has suffered an absolutely devastating loss. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

We have no words which can fully express the pain and hurt that we all feel, and yet we know that Chantelle’s family are experiencing sorrow on an altogether different scale. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Chantelle had such a lovely way of showing she cared, and this was evident to all, but especially those in her close friendship group. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

She had both spirit and character, and we all recognised her wonderful potential. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

No family or community should ever have to experience a loss of this kind. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

School does not feel right without Chantelle. We will all miss her; I suspect in ever-increasing measure over the coming weeks. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

At Castell Alun, we will support and care for each other in order to find a path through, but acknowledge that it will take considerable time for any of us to comprehend that such a promising young student has been taken from us in this cruel manner, and Chantelle will remain in our hearts forever.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Miss Beth Jones – Student Development Manager for Chantelle’s Year 9 Group – “We are heartbroken to hear of the tragic passing of our Year 9 student Chantelle. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

She joined us at the start of Year 7, and throughout her all too brief time with us it was so clear that Chantelle had a beautiful soul. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

She will be so very sorely missed by her family, friends, teachers, and peers here at Ysgol Castell Alun. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Chantelle was a caring and loving friend and she tirelessly put others before herself. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The amount of love, sorrow and upset shown since Chantelle’s passing shows the massive impact she had on everyone she met. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

As a school we will support our students and staff through this tragic time, and all our love goes out to Chantelle’s family.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
