We are very saddened to hear the news of the death of HM Queen Elizabeth II. For the vast majority of OAs, she has been the only head of state we have known. In a world of such rapid change over the past seven decades, she has provided the necessary stability for our nation, not just in the UK, but beyond. She has represented the best through her sense of duty, service and faith. While we mourn her loss as a nation and as citizens, we hope and pray as Old Augustinians that the future heads of state will follow in her fine example.
