 Bereavement Committee

     The Memorial Garden at South Windsor High School was designed to honor the memory of students who died while attending South Windsor High School and staff who died while in service at the school. During the summer of 2010, the Garden was installed on the grounds of the high school. Stone pavers with the names of the deceased are included in a walkway which winds through the landscaped area. Three benches offer visitors a place to sit and reflect.

     The Memorial Garden project was initiated by the Bereavement Committee at South Windsor High School. The project received funds from town and school organizations as well as from individual donors. Local landscapers donated time and materials to the project. The Garden was dedicated on Thursday, October 202013 at a special ceremony attended by family and friends of those remembered and students and staff, past and present of South Windsor High School.

     Donations in support of the Memorial Garden can be made to “SWHS Bereavement Team” with "Memorial Garden" put in the memo section of the check. Please send contributions to The Bereavement Committee, c/o Heather Brindisi, South Windsor High School, 161 Nevers Road, South Windsor, CT, 06074. Thank you for helping to maintain this place of comfort and remembrance.
