16/01/2014 MERIT AWARDS DISTRIBUTED AT LORETO COLLEGE ASSEMBLY

Bronze and Silver Merit Award certificates have been presented to students from Years 8-10 at Loreto College Coleraine at a special Merit Assembly.

The Merit Award rewards consistently excellent classwork, homework and conduct.  Certificates are presented at three levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold, and students collect nomination stamps on a regular basis from their subject teachers.  A special Assembly was held at Loreto College on Thursday 16th January to reward the students in Years 8-10 who have already gained sufficient Merit awards to attain their Bronze or Silver certificate.  Over 90 students received Bronze merit awards.  In Year 9, Sian Donaghy, Fionnuala Keane and Susan McKendry, along with Lauren Quinn of Year 8, received Silver merit awards. 

Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, paid tribute to the students who had received their Bronze or Silver Merit Award, saying that undoubtedly the patterns of hard work and excellent behaviour would now translate into impressive results in the Christmas examinations.  Mrs Maeve Close, co-ordinator of the Merit Award system at Loreto College, added that it was encouraging to see so many members of the Junior School receiving these Awards in recognition of consistently excellent work and conduct.
