Coleraine Grammer School has paid tribute to Lewis Fleming, who sadly died on Wednesday following a fall from Powerscourt Waterfall in Co Wicklow.
Coleraine Grammar School principle David Curruthers wrote on the schools social media, saying:
“The whole school community is devastated to hear of the tragic death of Lewis Fleming.
“Lewis was a lovely young man, about to enter Year 12, who contributed hugely to school life in the classroom, on the rugby field, the athletics track and in the swimming pool. Lewis had a wide circle of friends, a great sense of fun and will be sorely missed by everyone.
“I personally found Lewis to be an engaging, pleasant pupil who was always happy to have a chat. This is a real tragedy and a terrible loss for Lewis’s whole family and for our school community.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with Lewis’s family at this tragic time.”
