We are all in shock at the tragic news that a much loved student, Paige Jacobsen, has passed away.
Paige’s tutor best described her as being small in stature, but larger than life in character. She was a fun, bubbly girl who quite simply brought joy to all those around her.
Not only was Paige very popular, but she also had so much talent and potential. She worked hard in lessons and some of the work she produced in her photography course was particularly impressive. Paige also had a maturity of thinking that not only meant that she could contribute some brilliant things to class discussions, but she was also a very valued friend to so many people.
To say that Paige will leave a hole in our community is an understatement. She was always at the heart of everything, Paige never wanted to miss out on any opportunity, and we will do all that we can to honour her memory.
Counselling and support is being made available to our staff and students, and our thoughts and prayers are with her family and wider network of friends.
