Pupils at the Belfast Boys' Model school have been rallying behind their teacher, Catherine Seeley, after she was subjected to a litany of threats and online abuse because she is a Sinn Fein representative in Craigavon. A family member said the 25-year-old was too upset and frightened to return to her work after threatening graffiti was daubed close to the Protestant school telling her to quit her post.

A-Level student Daniel Hooke said that he was gutted over the incident, while a Twitter account dedicated to Ms Seeley was set up in her name and called 'loveCatherineSeeley'.

"All the best Cat Seeley from her Boys' Model A-level class! All literally gutted and a disgrace what's happened to such a good person!" wrote Daniel. Curtis Elliott wrote: "She was nothing but nice to me, good luck wherever you end up."

A post on the Protestant Coalition's Facebook page stated that one of its members had contacted the Boys' Model school and claimed they spoke to an assistant head regarding the teacher. It stated that the school had confirmed Ms Seeley was a teacher there, but had refused to give out further information.

The post went on: "We, like the parents who send their children to the school, care about the children's welfare and education and if this teacher is an obstacle to their success, then she should be removed at once."

One Facebook user commented that she was "dumbfounded and sickened" to learn of the school teacher's political affiliation. The user went on to say that she would pull her son out of the school until the teacher's contract was terminated.

Oh, for goodness sake! It's not like she's in a same sex relationship or got pregnant out of wedlock. She is merely a member of the political wing of a terrorist organisation responsible for blowing up boys of the same age as the ones she teaches.
