A student from Loreto College in Coleraine has become the first person in her school to attain the Silver Level of the President’s Award.
Year 13 pupil, Sorcha O’Hara, attained the award following some very dedicated and determined hard work in a range of activities.
Sorcha had to undertake Community Service work, work on a personal skill area, and engage in a programme of Physical Recreation. All three activities had to be continued over a period of 26 weeks.
In addition to this, she undertook a three day/two night ‘Adventure Journey’ hike, in challenging conditions.
Congratulating her, principal, Michael James said: “Sorcha is the first student from Loreto to attain the Silver level of this prestigious award and it is a testament to her hard work, determination and all-round endeavour. An impressive achievement indeed.”
