In Memory Of Joyelle McIntosh
Members of the Executive of the Queen’s College PTA presented a wreath to the school today, November 13, in memory of Mrs. Joyelle McIntosh, Primary Years Teacher.
A brief wreath-laying ceremony was held at the school’s flagpoles today, where the flags are still flying at half-mast to honour the memory of Mrs. McIntosh.
Students and staff wore their purple ‘Peace Begins With Me’ T-shirts to bring awareness to the senseless act of violence wrought against this teacher.
