Welcome to Corpus Christi
Following the events of yesterday we would like to share with you the statements made by the College and the Diocese.
Steve Mort, Headteacher of Corpus Christi Catholic College said:
“I want to take this opportunity to pay tribute to all our staff and students, present and past, for the way that they have coped, and continue to cope with this shocking and unprecedented incident.
I would also like to say thank you for the amazing tributes and messages of sympathy and support that we have received in school from across Leeds, from around the country and from far further afield. We have drawn great strength and comfort from these and from our shared faith, and we continue to remember Ann and her family in our prayers.
Corpus Christi Catholic College remains committed to ensuring that all of our students are supported to fulfil their God given potential.”
Monsignor John Wilson, Leeds Diocesan Administrator said:
“Ann’s loss is still deeply felt by her family and friends, and everyone at Corpus Christi Catholic College and in the local community. Her legacy is of huge importance to us all, and we take collective strength from ensuring that we carry on the passion and commitment that she demonstrated to all the children and young people she worked with over the years.
The school motto is ‘Together we work, learn, pray, grow’ and Ann was a great advocate of this, and that this school should be a safe, nurturing environment for all. Everybody affected by this terrible tragedy will continue to be held in our thoughts and prayers.”
