Last year our beloved Paolo died but he is always with us in our hearts. We now haveย  a special seating area at school in his memory-and as Paolo loved Lego so much, this is a very fitting tribute to him. The bench is on the roof playground with the Church behind, and looking towards Paolo’s home. We will all sit here and think of Paolo, say a prayer, reflect and most importantly be happy. Paolo was always happy at school and we are sure he is smiling down on us from heaven. May he rest in peace.ย 

Thank you to Concord London, E8 Architects, Kier and Printing Portal for kindly designing, making and installing this special memorial bench.

    Thank you for everyone who took part in making a special place on the roof where memories will come back flowing and where it will stay forever in one place. Somewhere to think of Paolo; to hope and to dream.๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป I’m sure he is so proud of us and the lego seat will make me think of him, forever and always. And I really think it matches the school rainbow!!!๐ŸŒˆ

    I love the new bench.
    It is such a unique bench and a wonderful way to remember him by especially since he was so unique too.
    Paolo loved Lego and now we can share his love for Lego and see a part of Paolo.
    Paolo may seem so far away in heaven but he is so close, in our hearts.
    I miss him very much.

  13. I will always remember Paolo. His lego bench reminds me of him. “Paolo’s bench for him and for all”.

  14. I thought that this bench was a great idea to remember Paolo as he loved lego. If Paolo was still alive he would’ve loved this bench. I will miss him dearly and I will remember him throughout my life. I hope that Paolo is having a fun time in heaven and is happy. Paolo always smiled and made the cloudy days a sunny day. He was a joy to be his friend and it is so very sad of him passing away. But he is now in a better place.

  15. Paolo will always be in our hearts. He was a friend of many and will be remembered forever, as he will always be part of the St. Vincent’s family. I am so fortunate to have Paolo as a friend, as we shared fun memories together throughout the years. I am happy he is in a better place now, since even though he is not with us physically, he will always be part of this family.
