Heart-warming tributes have been paid to a “much-loved” teacher who passed away on Thursday.

Mary McBride has been described as “inspirational” by De La Salle College – a Catholic boys’ school in Belfast – where she taught for 17 years, reports The Mirror.

The school, teachers, students and parents paid tribute to the mother of two.

A statement released by the school said, “Our school community is heartbroken at the loss of Miss Marie McBride who died on the 2 March,” a school statement read. Not only was she a much loved and inspirational teacher of English and Media Studies in our school for the past seventeen years but she was also a strong advocate for social justice and concern for others. She embodied the very best of what it means to be a Lasallian teacher and will be remembered fondly by her pupils and staff for her selfless acts of kindness, her creativity and her enthusiasm for instilling a love of reading and poetry in her pupils,” reports The Mirror.

A former pupil said, “I still have the book she gave me, I will treasure it forever. Our lives are all the richer for having met her,” reports The Mirror.

Her death notice read: “Adored mother of Elise and Culann, loved partner of Seán, beloved daughter of Anne and Patrick, much loved sister of Róisín, Ciara and Patrick, also beloved aunt of Drithle, Luisne, Anna, Ruadan and Connla, loved sister-in- law of Gearóid, Maxi and Máedhbh.
