Sir Captain Tom Moore

Staff and students at SWA were deeply saddened to hear of the loss of Sir Captain Tom Moore this week and we send our heartfelt condolences to his family. During the first lockdown Sir Tom was a true inspiration to the country and pupils at SWA and the other schools in BEST, who made over 100 birthday cards for his 100th birthday. When we delivered the birthday cards to his Son in Law, he mentioned that Sir Tom had just finished talking to an Australian news channel and was about to talk to CNN. He was truly an inspirational man for the whole world and a national treasure.
