The annual Junior Prizegiving at Loreto College Coleraine was held in the College Hall on Monday 25th June 2007, at the conclusion of a very busy year in the life of the school.

Speaking to the assembled students from Year 8 – Year 10, College Principal Mr Brian Lenehan said,

“All of you make a great contribution to the life of the school, not only through your studies but also through the numerous other extra-curricular activities, sport, clubs and competitions provided by the school.  It is marvellous to see so many participating in the life of the school in whatever area that may be.  It is also wonderful to see you supporting and helping each other, the older pupils looking out for the younger ones – and in a few years you all will be the older ones and I’ve no doubt you will look out for the younger ones.  Getting involved, doing things, participating will enable you to grow in confidence and self-belief, teach you how to be a team member, cope with new situations and prepare you for new challenges in the future.  You’ll also make new friends and there is nothing to beat having a real friend.  So although this year is almost over I would encourage you all to become involved in the wider life of the school next year whether in sport, music, drama, extra-curricular activities, competitions and the many other things that take place.

“Your studies, of course, are of paramount importance and I commend you for your diligence and hard work throughout the year and in your preparation for your summer examinations.  In school here we try to do the best we can in everything we do and that includes you.  This is your school, it is here for your benefit and what you take away from here when you leave will depend partly on us, your teachers, yes! But it will largely depend on you.  You will only get out of anything what you put into it – that’s a law of life.  And along the way we all experience disappointments – that’s another law of life.  It is how we deal with these and move on from them that is so important for each of us.  I hope that in this school you will always find the support and friendships in the staff and pupils to be able to move on from disappointments.

“We hope that during your time here in Loreto you will always be able to step up and out and always able to find the help to enable you to do that.”

Mr Lenehan then gave an outline of the highlights and achievements of the academic year just ending.
