my classmate in my gcse class last year died today because of a train accident.
i cannot call him as a friend but i am feeling depress and can't stop thinking about what we did in school.
he was not a very good boy in school but he was a nice person though and only 17.

I'm really sorry to hear your news. A similar thing happened to a classmate of mine only a month after we left school. He was working in a local cement yard. Nobody realised he was cleaning the chutes, so they tipped the cement dust down and sadly he was crushed.
We held a memorial service for him, and our school opened a garden of remembrance for anybody who wanted to go and have a quiet place to think. It's still very early days, but you will get over it in time.
Talk to anyone you can. Perhaps your teachers have organised councellors or something to come in and help those who need it. Don't be afraid to show your emotions too- especially if other people are upset. It helps to know others are feeling the loss just as much as you.

So sorry to hear your news Pianoandflute. It's very sad to lose a colleague or friend.
My friend's sister was knocked down by a car two years ago tonight. She lived until about three weeks ago - I went to her funeral last week.
It is much more of a shock though when it's somebody so young. As Appleblossom says, talking is good. The rest of you can help each other through this.

I'm sorry to hear that pianoandflute
maybe there are others from your class you could talk too. I'm sure there may be others trying to come to terms with this tragic loss.
Let your emotions out. don't let them build up inside. Find someone to talk to, and listen to you.

Its hard when someone as young as us dies.I go to one of the largest high schools in New Zealnd--several of my fellow students are battling with cancer, unfortunately many have lost their battles but their passing helped bring our school together and made me reflect on how our time is not guaranteed, to make the most of everyday as if it was our last.

sorry to hear the sad news.

I got news a bit like that this time last year.... I'd known the girl since year 4 and we'd been friends since primary school. We weren't really friends in secondary school, but she went to a different college and we heard the news that she committed suicide. It was one of those cases where no-one really knew how to react, especially as it was all over the papers yet hardly mentioned by school. Pianoandflute, there will be many people feeling the same way as you - like everyone else has said, dont be afraid to talk about it at school or at home.... *hug*

I'm really sorry to hear it *hugs really hard*
My bet friends' mum (also the school's head of English and one of the best teachers in years) died having battled cancer for 6 years. She always put up a front of being fine so we all thought she would be ok- but things went downhill really quickly.
