School pays tribute to Welwyn Garden City eight-year-old pupil

A PRIMARY school, in WGC, has paid tribute to one of its pupils.

Lewis McGlynn, who died during the early hours of Friday, has been remembered as a “born performer” by his headteacher at Harwood Hill school.

Philip Gray, of the Harwood Close-based school, said of the eight-year-old: “Lewis was a likeable boy with a cheeky smile and a great sense of humour.

“A born performer, he particularly loved singing and dancing around the campfire on the school residential trip to Cuffley camp.

“We knew Lewis as a charmer, with a big, lively personality, who loved football and playing with his friends. Lewis was a key member of his class and will be sorely missed by pupils, staff and everyone connected with the school.”
