A community is in mourning after a young boy died at his primary school.
Emergency services were called to Bordertown Primary School just before 10.30am on Wednesday, where the 10-year-old boy died unexpectedly, reports Adelaide Now.
The boy’s death is not considered to be suspicious.
The school released a statement on Thursday afternoon expressing condolences to the boy’s family.
Principal Shelley Cameron said: “The Bordertown Primary School community is deeply shocked and saddened by the unexpected tragic death of one of our students.
“Our deepest condolences go out to our student’s family, friends and the broader school community.
“Counselling is being offered to members of Bordertown’s school community who are understandably affected and saddened by this incident.
“The family have asked for everyone to understand and respect their need for privacy.
“There will be no further comment from the school or the family at this stage.”
The school had provided a condolence book in their front office while floral tributes were placed at the school entrance.
The Advertiser has chosen not to name the boy.
Police will prepare a report for the Coroner.
Our thoughts are with his family.
