On Wednesday 21 September, St Louise’s’ Year 9 cohort, together with their parents, guardians and special guests, hosted a very successful Celebration of Achievement. Students were awarded for their achievements in Year 8.
This event was particularly poignant as it was our College’s first opportunity to host a Celebration of Achievement ceremony since the onset of the pandemic, hence the record number of parents and guardians in attendance.
Guest speaker for the event was the current Lord Mayor of Belfast, Ms Tina Black, who addressed the students warmly with praise and encouragement for their accomplishments. Ms Black wished the students well for their future years in school and beyond. The Lord Mayor, a former pupil of St Louise’s, spoke fondly of her time at school and encouraged the students to, “follow their passions, make many friends and enjoy their time at school”.
Principal, Miss Mary McHenry, in her address reminded the students about the importance of “daring to dream” and “aiming high”.
The prize winning students were recognised not only for academic achievement, but for their hard work, attitude and commitment and contribution to the extra-curricular life of the school.
Congratulations to all of our wonderfully talented Year 9 students.
