First picture of tragic Muswell Hill schoolboy killed in Swiss bus crash
This is the first picture of the Muswell Hill schoolboy who tragically died in a horrific Swiss bus crash.
Sebastian Bowles, 11, a former pupil of Our Lady of Muswell Hill Catholic Primary School in Pages Lane, was one of 22 children who died in the crash on Tuesday (March 13).
Staff at his former school earlier today (Friday March 16) paid tribute to the youngster, known by his teachers as ‘the little cherub’.
A statement from the headteacher, staff, pupils, and governors at the school, said: “Our school community is still reeling from the shock of this terrible accident. Our thoughts and prayers are with Sebastian’s family at this tragic time.”
A minute’s silence was held at the school, and teachers are offering support to the children, many of whom knew and remember Sebastian and his family.
Sebastian attended the school from September 2003 to July 2009 when his family moved from Crouch End to Belgium.
He was one of 52 people on the bus when it hit a tunnel wall as school children from Belgium returned from a ski holiday in the Swiss Alps.
