A former student from Loreto College Coleraine has been honoured by the Royal Geographical Society following her success as one of the top students achieving A* grades in last summer’s CCEA A level examinations.
Natalie Costello (pictured right) was placed first among all those who entered both CCEA A level Geography and CCEA A level Economics.
This was a remarkable achievement for Natalie, who has now taken up a place to read Medicine at Queen’s University Belfast.
In recognition of her success in Geography, Natalie received an Excellence Award from the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG).
Commenting, Steve Brace, Head of Education at the Royal Geographical Society said: “The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) congratulates Natalie on her exceptional grade. This is testament to her hard work and ability as a geographer, along with the high quality teaching that has taken place in her school.”
Loreto principal, Michael James, congratulated Natalie and her Geography teachers, Miss E A Curry and Mr L Shaw on this wonderful achievement.
