12/11/2015 BASE COMPETITION

A team of Year 13 students represented Loreto in the BASE Competition in November: this is ICAEW’s National Business and Accounting competition.

The team of six students: Christopher Doherty, Philip Doherty, Shea McTaggart, Aidan O’Boyle, Daniel O’Kane and John Smyth, were are able to put their classroom learning into practice by acting as a team of ICAEW Chartered Accountants for the day. Supported by a professional mentor, the team was presented with a variety of business issues they will need to provide innovative recommendations for. The team had to present their advice to a panel of highly respected judges.  The Loreto team, sadly, didn’t qualify for the next round, but presented their case very well indeed in the school’s first year taking part in this competition.
