After seeing the boy’s message, pupils Piper Stowe and her friend Shawna Cantilano decided to raise money for the new computer.

Piper later shared a video of the moment classmates gave Shawn the brand new Nintendo 3DS.

They were able to raise more than $200 (£149) and decided to give the boy his gift in front of the class.

Shawn did not just use his computer to play but he is also studying to design console games.

The 15-year-old said: ‘I was very distraught and sad but when they gave me the computer I was stricken with happiness. It’s a Christmas miracle. I feel like it was a gift from God.’

Shawna was delighted her follow pupils dug deep for Shawn.

She said: ‘There’s a lot of underlying kindness (at Antioch High) that’s not really brought to the surface.

‘It’s only like in unfortunate events like these you really see it.’
