Winners of Year 14 Subject Awards at Loreto College Senior Prizegiving

The Prizegiving celebrates the academic, personal, inter-personal and spiritual excellence of the College’s senior students, and was an opportunity to welcome back the A Level students of Summer 2019 and celebrate their success.

The guest speaker at the Prizegiving was former Loreto College student, Mr James McDaid. James McDaid was a pupil at Loreto from 1986 – 1993. He is now a renal transplant surgeon at Belfast City Hospital.  

In a very thought-provoking speech, Mr McDaid talked about the lasting lessons both academic and personal he had learned during his seven years at Loreto College, the lifelong friendships he made at the school and his memories of the outstanding teaching he received there. Talking about his own life, he outlined research into the pursuit of happiness and the importance of relationships, health and an optimistic approach to life alongside hard work and a fulfilling career, encouraing the students present to incorporate all these things, and the values which are part of the Loreto College ethos, into their lives as they complete and move on from their school studies.
