The children, who were five and six years old, both attended the school that provides specialized educational services to students with special needs. Symptoms of the illness that led to their death include diarrhea and stomach cramps, and the school is currently experiencing an outbreak of giardia.

Michelle Beard, the headteacher at Millstead primary school, was deeply saddened by the news of the children’s death. She said that both of the children were a source of joy and happiness to all who knew them and were beloved by the school community.
