20/01/2004 OXBRIDGE SUCCESS FOR LORETO STUDENTS

Two sixth-formers from Loreto College Coleraine were beginning the New Year on a high note this week, as they celebrated the news that their applications to, respectively, Oxford and Cambridge had been successful.

The two students, Caroline Cavanagh and Sorcha McCloskey, have both enjoyed first class academic records during their time at Loreto, and have also contributed much to the extra-curricular life of the school through activities such as hockey, netball and public speaking. Sorcha is Deputy Head Girl at the Castlerock Road School, while Caroline is Sports Captain.

Caroline, from Ballycastle, has been offered a place at Keble College Oxford to read Law, and hopes to defer entry for a year to enable her to take part in an Operation Raleigh Expedition. Sorcha, meanwhile, from Limavady, has been offered a place at Sidney Sussex College Cambridge to read Natural Sciences.

Both students were congratulated by Loreto College Principal Mr Brian Lenehan, and wished well by their teachers and fellow-students as they begin their final months at school, in preparation for their A level examinations.
