Young teacher Jonathan Holt has taken the Internet by storm after going for a very memorable way of popping the question to his partner and fellow teacher Iris Howorth last month.

Mr Holt organised Ms Howorth's pupils at New Orleans Chalmette High, where they both work, to propose to her with candy rings, while another pupil filmed the whole thing.

While Ms Howorth looked amused at all her pupils proposing to her, her boyfriend walked in the door and asked her to marry him and she responded with an enthusiastic yes.

The newly-engaged couple then walked through the building to applause while the school band playing around them.

The video has since gone viral with more than 600,000 views.
