In a letter to parents on Friday afternoon, the school’s principal, David Raphael, said the community’s “thoughts and prayers are with Sanad’s family and friends, and with the wider school community, as we mourn the loss of a beautiful boy ”.

Sanad Shahriar, a student of St. Lucy’s School, died in an elevator accident on Wednesday.

“It is with sadness that I inform you of the passing of Sanad Shahriar. We understand that this is disturbing news. The school is preparing information that you can use with your child to help them understand Sanad’s death,” Raphael said.
