13/06/2014 MERIT AWARD TRIP FOR LORETO COLLEGE GOLD WINNERS

Throughout the academic year, students from Years 8-10 at Loreto College have worked hard to win rewards through the Bronze, Silver and Gold Merit Award scheme.

On Friday 13th June, just over 100 students who had received their Gold Merit Award were rewarded with a day out: the students watched a film at the Portrush Playhouse, then enjoyed lunch at McDonald’s.

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.

Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, paid tribute to the students who had received their Gold, Silver and Bronze Merit Awards, saying that undoubtedly the patterns of hard work and excellent behaviour would be something to continue in their new year groups from September. 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 a Gold Award as the academic year drew to a close.
