A school is planting a flower bed in memory of an 11-year-old boy who was knocked down and killed by a car in Hounslow.
Aaron Singh Matharu had only joined Year 7 at Cranford Community College in High Street three weeks before he died.
Following the tragic incident in Bath Road, Cranford, on Friday (September 30) a special memorial assembly was held at the school this week, followed by a two-minute silence across the academy.
Students and staff have also been offered in-house counselling support, while a book of condolences filled with heartfelt messages is being collated and will be given to the family.
In addition the school is making plans for a flower bed to be planted in its memorial garden by the youngster's friends and year group.
A statement from Cranford Community College said: “The Academy Trust and the whole school community were shocked and saddened to learn of the tragic accident which resulted in the loss of Aaron Singh Matharu, a newly arrived Year 7 student.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Aaron’s family at this very difficult time and we wish to respect the private grief of his family and friends.
“The academy has been grateful for the offers of further help, were it to be needed, from individuals and partner organisations such as the nursing service and from Hounslow’s local authority and this tragedy has reinforced what a mutually supportive and close community Cranford is.”
'Caring, loving pupil who was keen to help others'
A message on Facebook from parent Hina Malik described Aaron as a "caring, loving pupil who was keen to help others".
Ms Malik whose son Riyan survived a similar crash in July this year on the same strip of road, added in the post: “My thoughts and prayers are with his mum and the family at this difficult times and pray for them to have the strength to cope with this irreplaceable loss.
“Aaron you will be missed by all of us. May your angelic soul R.I.P!”
