Patrick Callaghan, headteacher at St Andrew's RC High reflected on the achievements of the school’s young people recognised and honoured for their skills and talents recently.

Addressing over 300 award winners, their families and friends in the school’s games hall at the end of term, Mr Callaghan related how schools were all about the people in them with their own particular story to tell with each and every one valued for who they are and for what they achieve.

This year’s guest of honour at the ceremony was Matt Stewart, CEO of Entrepreneur me.

Mr Callaghan urged awards recipients to use their prize as recognition of their success but also as an incentive to strive even higher and further to always “give your very best in using your God-given talents for your continued success and also the positive impact you have and will continue to have on others”.

The headteacher paid tribute to the school’s staff and parent body thanking them “for all they have done in support of our young people” and for putting their trust “in St Andrew’s RC High for your children and young people each day”.

Addressing the school leavers, he said: “Leaving high school is one of those milestone years in a young person’s life and you should be proud of the many positive experiences and achievements you have had – and shared – in your time here. You will hopefully look back to your school days with affection, remembering all the opportunities you had – both in class and out – during your time here. Whilst all your exam passes are important you should also not forget how you have grown as a young person too; the skills you have learned and developed and the wider achievements and learning experiences associated with our school in which you have been involved. You have every right to be proud of your successes. You are a credit to the school, your families and yourselves and I wish you all continued success in the next part of life’s journey.”
