11/05/2016 LEAVERSí MASS FOR YEAR 14 CELEBRATED AT LORETO COLLEGE

Year 14 students – the class of 2016 – 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 10th May, celebrated by Father

Raymond McCullagh. The theme of the Mass was Learning to Fly, inspired by the idea that the students were now taking flight for the adventures of adult life, following all the many lessons they had learned from their parents, their teachers and one another. 

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.  The evening was also an opportunity to remember the students’ much loved and much missed classmate, Anna McAllister, who passed away in September 2014.

There were deeply moving and uplifting speeches from Head Girl Orla Rafferty, Head Boy Ryan Florida-James, Head of Year 14 Ms Catherine Marron 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 was a wonderful affirmation of the Class of 2016 and their special and utterly unique contribution to the life of Loreto College.
