Death shocks school

The sudden death of a secondary school principal sent shockwaves through the education system yesterday.
Diana Wilson, who joined the family at The Lester Vaughan School in 2006 as deputy principal before being appointed principal, passed away yesterday morning at the age of 56.
School was called off but unaware of that development, students who would normally be greeted by Wilson on their early arrival turned up to be met by people crying and trying to console each other.
When a DAILY NATION team arrived at the school, only a few students were on the compound, and most of the staff were huddled in the staffroom as they dealt with their loss.
A few staffers walked around with towels and washcloths at the ready to wipe the tears when they came. Others stood by the entrance to the office to offer encouraging hugs to others mourners upon their arrival.
