Last updated at 14:00, Wednesday, 22 September 2010
A SPECIAL school memorial service will be held to remember a “one of a kind” pupil. Harry Hucknall, 10, was found hanging in his bedroom on Sunday.
The George Romney Junior School pupil lived in Ullswater Close in Dalton with his mum, Jane White.
Neighbours and paramedics tried to revive Harry but he was pronounced dead after being taken to Furness General Hospital.
Now George Romney Junior School is planning a private memorial service, to take place tomorrow.
A statement from the school said: “All the children, staff and families of George Romney Junior School are devastated by the tragic loss of Harry Hucknall.
“Harry joined our community towards the end of year four and during his time in year five made some very good and close friends.
“In the words of the children ‘you can’t be like Harry he was one of a kind’. His friends spoke about the way he would always try to help others and he was ‘the sort of person you couldn’t fall out with’.
“The school is working hard to help all children deal with the loss of Harry and specific, professional support is being offered to Harry’s closest friends.
“The staff and children will be remembering Harry at a private memorial service tomorrow at 1.30pm in school.”
“We would like to request that the children at the school and the family are treated respectfully and allowed the time they feel they need to cope with the loss.”
“Our thoughts and prayers go to Harry’s family and all in the community who knew him.”Police said an investigation into the circumstances of Harry's death is being led by a dedicated team of detectives from south Cumbria.
