John McColl said: "John Paul was a student at Ridgeway School who sadly passed away in early September 2012.
"This inspirational young man was a big part of Ridgeway School and will bad sadly missed.

The Herald launched its Gift Of Life campaign last year to inspire an extra 1,000 city people to become organ donors in memory of Jon Paul.
Launched with the support of Jon Paul's family and Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust, the campaign aims to inspire another 1,000 city people to sign the Organ Donor Register.
Jill Oxley, Jon Paul's mum, has said she "won't stop" until she gets people to sign up.
