The head boy of Queen’s College, Dario Rahming, died on Saturday sending shockwaves through the school’s community as the circumstances and cause of his death remain unclear.
“He was an extraordinary young man and our hearts are broken.
We ask for your prayers for his family, friends, classmates and the entire Queen’s College community.
We say that when one Comet shines, we all shine. But today, one of our Comets has fallen, so we fall as well,” the school said in a statement posed on its Facebook page.
The school’s principal, Henry Knowles, told reporters that the student was on campus and collapsed and that the school followed proper protocols.
He said the staff are trained to provide emergency CPR.
“One of our nurses was on campus, she was outside with a sports event and she was able to be right there in place, she came and rushed to the clinic.
The ambulances were called. They came in record time, and until then, we were doing everything we could on our side,” the principal said, describing the incident as a “very hard moment”.
“He’s our head boy and last week, I think it was, we did an installation of him and all our senior leaders. I can say when he came on stage to get his tie pinned on him, the entire school went nuts. Everybody absolutely loves him.
He’s an extraordinary young man. You can put him in front as a poster of what we want the young men of the nation to be, and we’re all so heartbroken because of it.
“He’s smart. He’s a devout Christian. He preaches. He’s not a selfish young man.
He’s well spoken.
He’s humble. He’s very mannerly, and he’s caring,” the principal said, adding “this is a very hard moment for all of us and we’re praying for the family, you know, we’re praying for the entire staff and the Queen’s College community.”
