Dear KingsWay School Community

I have just received news from Phillip Wyatt (Chris’s son) who has confirmed the funeral will be held on Tuesday, 26 September at the KingsWay School Event Centre at 2pm.

To allow all Senior School staff to attend, the Senior School will be shut for instruction from 12.45pm. Senior School students need to either attend the funeral, leave the site or will be supervised in the library.
To assist the family with the funeral, staff and visitors are asked to bring a plate of light refreshments which will be served at the back of the Events Centre following the service.
There will be limited parking on site for the elderly and family, so please park in the adjacent streets.

It is with sadness that I announce that our much loved brother Chris Wyatt (Senior School Biology teacher) was promoted to glory yesterday after a long illness. Chris would have completed his 10th year of teaching at KingsWay School at the end of this year. He is well respected as one of the fathers of Christian education in the South Island. He was a friend to everyone and my last conversation with him had him laughing out loud at one of my average attempts at humour. He will be missed as a colleague, friend and Christian brother who fought the good fight and is at home with the Lord. Well done Chris, you will definitely sing with the angels.

Please pray for his wife Monica and family as they come to terms with the news as many family and friends will still be in transit.

This morning staff shared the news with classes during devotions. Please be aware that many of the senior students will be feeling fragile and will need to be comforted. Our counsellors Don Wilson and Michelle Youngs will be available for the next week to support students and staff.

When talking to your child about this you may want to remind them that Chris Wyatt is with the Lord now. We talk of hope as Christians. That is our privilege and gift.
