Two students from Loreto College Coleraine were presented with awards at a ceremony at Titanic Belfast, having been recognised among the very top students achieving A* grades in a variety of subjects in the Summer 2015 CCEA GCSE examinations.
Emily Moore was placed First in CCEA GCSE Physics and Joint First in CCEA Further Mathematics, while Maggie McBride was placed Joint First in CCEA GCSE Economics. Both Emily and Maggie were presented with plaques to mark these achievements, while their teachers – Miss B Toner (Economics), Mrs M Mackle (Mathematics) and Mrs K Brolly (Physics) were also congratulated.
