A Letterkenny teacher who went above and beyond this year got a wonderful surprise today when her pupils returned the kindness.
Ms Lauren Stewart from Ramelton had been teaching third class in Lurgybrack NS since September while covering maternity leave for Ms McCrossan.
Ms Stewart made a real impact on her pupils during homeschooling and creative lockdown projects.
The children wanted to say thank you this week, as her time with them came to an end, so they decided to record special messages at home. Dean Murray, one of her pupils, compiled it all into a video, which was screened in school today.
Ms Stewart was told that the children had recorded a dance for YouTube, but instead she got to see all the heartfelt messages and performances make specially for her.
