Stephen Kelly, headteacher at the school where pupil Keane Wallis-Bennett died yesterday, said:
Keane was an excellent pupil who had a bright and bubbly personality and got on well with others in class.
She was a popular team player who took an active role in projects such as the Junior Awards Scheme Scotland.
She showed a lot of sporting ability and was really eager to contribute to the school for example by clearing litter and planting bulbs in the school grounds.
She had a real presence in class and her friends and my staff are deeply shocked and upset at what has happened.
I am very grateful for the support that our school community is receiving as we come to terms with this tragic event.
He also praised the response of emergency services:
I would also like to thank the emergency services who attended yesterday and everyone for their messages of support at what is a very difficult time for Keane’s family and the whole school community.
Counselling staff are continuing to support our staff and pupils and I would encourage any pupils who want to talk to someone to take up the help available.
