School says ‘words are not enough’ after two teenage students die in the same week

A school has paid tribute to the “untimely passing” of a Year 11 student — just days after they lost another pupil.

The head teacher of St Patrick’s College in Dungannon described Fabian Dabrowski as “a lovely boy, gentle and caring”.

Tragically Fabian is the second member of the school to die this week following the death of Year 12 Matthew McCallan on Monday, Belfast Live reports.

The school mentioned Fabian’s passion for football, gaming and drawing, and said he was “one of the kindest young people you would ever meet”.

In a post, St Patrick’s College said “today our hearts are sore.”

They added: “We have learned of the untimely passing of our Year 11 student Fabian Dabrowski Dos Santos. Sometimes words are just not enough.

“Fabian was such a lovely boy, gentle and caring. He was one of the kindest young people you would ever meet.

“Fabian thought of others before himself and he always made sure that others were ok – it was just his nature and this stood out about Fabian since he joined us in Year 8 – he took others under his wing and was such a good friend.

“Fabian enjoyed football and was a keen and competitive gamer and he loved to draw and refine his skill.

“He enjoyed working in groups to complete projects and tasks.

“He is pictured below at our recent Yr 11 Learning Together Wreath Making Workshop preparing their stall for the Christmas Fayre.”

The school extended tributes to Fabian’s family and asked for his friends and school to community to be kept in thoughts and prayers.

They added: “To Fabian’s mummy, Step Father, two younger brothers and extended family, we extend our heart felt sympathies.

“Please keep his family, friends and school community in your thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.

“May Fabian’s gentle soul rest in eternal peace.”
