26/06/2018 LORETO COLLEGE CELEBRATES END OF YEAR MASS

The closing of the academic year was celebrated at Loreto College Coleraine with a special Mass, on Tuesday 26th June.  Celebrated by Father Austin McGirr, the theme of the Mass was  Part of the Team, based on the 2018 World Cup Finals, and it celebrated the core Loreto values of Justice, Sincerity, Truth, Freedom and Joy as well as some of the principles of teamwork, Trust, Dedication, Teamwork and Faith.

At the Mass, several members of staff who have embodied the Loreto values were celebrated as they approach retirement and take their leave of Loreto College.  In particular, everyone at Loreto College wished to express their heartfelt thanks to three teachers, Mrs Geraldine Doherty, Mrs Schira McGoldrick and Mr Frank Scullion.  Mrs Geraldine Doherty has been Head of Biology at Loreto College for many years, as well as acting as Special Educational Needs Coordinator.  Mrs Schira McGoldrick has taught History, been Head of Year for Sixth Form, and Coordinator of Gaelic Games, having coached many camogie teams and encouraged the promotion of Gaelic Games throughout the College.  Mr Frank Scullion has been Senior Teacher, Head of Chemistry, Head of Science and School Timetabler, and was honoured in the last few years with a Royal Society of Chemistry Teachers’ Award.  All three have worked with countless classes – in an academic and pastoral capacity – for many years and all three will be greatly missed at Loreto College. Also leaving Loreto College is Head of Geography Miss Elizabeth Curry, after 19 distinguished years of service to the College.  Miss Curry is also getting married this summer, and good wishes were extended to her and to her fiancé. Presentations were made to all four teachers by the 2018-19 Head Girl, Fionnuala Keane, and Sports Captain, Cait Passmore. A presentation was also made to English teacher Mr Callum Boyle, who gets married this Summer, with the good wishes of the student community.

Speaking on behalf of all the staff and of the Senior Leadership Team, Miss Belinda Toner, College Vice Principal, expressed her gratitude to all of those members of staff who were retiring or leaving.  Speaking of Mrs Geraldine Doherty, Mrs Schira McGoldrick, Mr Frank Scullion and Miss Elizabeth Curry, Miss Toner commented that everyone in Loreto College, students and staff, would miss their wisdom, their knowledge, their caring and dedicated approach to everything they did and their tremendous knowledge and passion for their academic subjects.
