06/05/2015 LEAVERSí MASS FOR YEAR 14 CELEBRATED AT LORETO COLLEGE

Year 14 students – the class of 2015 – and their parents celebrated the end of seven happy years at Loreto College with the teaching staff of the school at a special Mass held on the evening of Tuesday 5th May, celebrated by Father Raymond McCullagh. The theme of the Mass was ‘Guiding Lights, inspired by the idea that the students had received lights of guidance from their parents, teachers, the Loreto Sisters and one another, which would guide them on their journey to final A Level examinations, university, employment and adult life. The Mass celebrated the friendship the students (and their teachers) have shared, something which, it is hoped, is not to be left behind as the students close the classroom doors for the last time. As the students finish timetabled lessons and face the challenges of the A2 examinations, the evening was an opportunity to reflect on happy memories, with laughter, tears, song and prayer.

There were moving and uplifting speeches from Head Girl Rebecca Jayne McKillen, Head Boy Conor O’Neill, Head of Year 14 Mrs Schira McGoldrick and College Principal Mr Michael James. Musical contributions from a group of talented singers and instrumentalists lent a tone of emotional reflection to the evening, which concluded with a big-screen display of photos from throughout the seven years which the class of 2015 spent at Loreto.

In the previous week, Masses were also celebrated at Loreto College for the Year 12 and Year 13 examination classes. As the examination period approaches, everyone at Loreto College wishes the Year 12, 13 and 14 students perseverance in their studies and every success in and beyond their examinations.
