On Thursday, June 16, headteacher Pat Callaghan welcomed the proud parents and carers of the senior award winners to the school for the first time since before the Covid-19 pandemic and presented a number of trophies and certificates to the worthy students.
Recognising excellence in attainment and also achievements whole school and in the wider community Mr Callaghan congratulated the young people and reflected on their commitment to the St Andrew’s RC High Community of Faith and Learning.
In the relaxed setting of the school assembly hall families were thankful for all the school had done to support their sons and daughters throughout their school career and commented on how far their children had come in a relatively short time.
A very impressive range of hot and cold food and drinks from the home economics staff and pupils added to the success of the evening.
Onwards and upwards now for our seniors as they leave to take up employment or college and university places.
Certificates are being finalised for the school’s junior pupils to recognise their successes across subject areas and they will receive them ahead of the summer holidays.
