The two students of Titchfield High School, who were killed in a car crash on Tuesday have been identified as Jajuan Wynter and Onaje Lindsay.

The two boys, who died while making their way home from school, were both in grade nine.

They were among a group of passengers travelling in a Blue Toyota Picnic taxi when it crashed into a parked truck on Blueberry Hill main road in Buff Bay.

Titchfield High Principal, Richard Thompson, told Nationwide News that five other students were injured in the crash and are hospitalised.

Principal Thompson says both Jajuan and Onaje were good students and were popular among their peers.

For its part, the Education Ministry says it dispatched a grief crisis team to Titchfield Wednesday morning.

In a release to the media, Minister Fayval Williams said the ministry will provide comprehensive psychosocial support to the affected students, staff, and the surrounding community.
 
The grief crisis team comprises trained professionals equipped to offer counselling. 

It has at least one guidance counsellor, an education officer, an educational social worker, a guidance counsellor with the Quality Education Circle, and the assigned safety and security officer.

The ministry says anyone in need of support or assistance may reach out using the ministry’s established channels, including school counsellors and the grief crisis team.
