The Loreto College Economics team, Cariosa O’Harte, Kate McLaughlin, Maggie McBride and Cormac McCarry, under the watchful eye (and endless guidance) of Loreto’s Vice Principal Miss Belinda Toner, has scooped second place in the UK Final of the Bank of England Target 2.0 Interest Rate Challenge.

Having won the Northern Ireland heat in November and the Northern Ireland, Scotland and North of England heat in February, the Loreto team took its place among the top 6 teams in the UK and faced a two-day final in London, held in the Bank of England headquarters, Threadneedle Street.

Undaunted by the fierce competition, the Loreto team impressed over a range of challenges and in the final presentation. They return home with an award of £1000 for the school and significant pride!

Mr Michael James, speaking on behalf of all the staff and students of Loreto College, paid tribute to the team members and their mentor and coach Miss Toner on their hard work and dedication in preparation for the competition, and their outstanding presentation in the final.
