Vicky Sloan (left), a fifth-year pupil, boarded out with a pal and did not see her family for three weeks to attend school. She has just returned home to their farm.

"It's inevitable now The next-door farm was confirmed as infected on Sunday. We'll definitely lose our sheep - probably everything. I'm upset for my dad who's worked for 25 years to get his dairy stock to where it is."

She adds: "Studying away from home was hard. You wanted to watch the news all the time."
