Archbishop Celebrates with Saint Catherine’s Students

Archbishop Celebrates with Saint Catherine’s Students

At St Catherine’s College Senior Prize giving 2014, Deputy-Principal, Denise Moore, introduced Guest Speaker Archbishop Eamon Martin using the words of Mark Durkan MP who referred to his friend as “approachable, able and very adaptable.”

In his address, Archbishop Martin congratulated the students on having achieved their goals and encouraged them to thank God, their families and all members of the school community who helped to shape them. He also paid tribute to the Sisters of the Sacred Heart for their work with many generations of young women in Armagh and surrounding district.

The Archbishop suggested to his young audience that, in thankgiving for their talents, they should become givers in life:

            “Use the gifts that you have been given to enrich the life of your community
              and to make your mark on society.”

He stressed that the students should be fully aware of the value of education and speak out for the human right to have top quality education such as that they had received at Saint Catherine’s College.

The vote of thanks was delivered by Head Girls, Eimear O’Kane and Cliodhna Curran, who thanked Archbishop Martin for giving up his time to attend the event and for his kind words of praise and encouragement.

GCSE Prize Giving at Saint Catherine’s College

GCSE Prize Giving @ Saint Catherine’s College


“The best way to predict your future is to create it!”

                                                                                          (Abraham Lincoln).


Past pupil Orlagh McGahan was Guest Speaker at the recent GCSE Prize Giving ceremony in Saint Catherine’s College. The Derrynoose girl is a barrister specialising in Children’s law and is founder and  CEO of OMG Software Ltd, a business platform for barristers.
The theme of the event was “Is Féidír linn – Yes, we can!”, echoing the words of Barack Obama, Dublin 2011. Principal Deirdre McDonald acknowledged the achievements of the class of 2014 and assured them that they had done themselves proud in the fullest sense of the word.
Mrs McDonald introduced Orlagh McGahan as one of the top ten family law barristers in N.I. in 2013. Orlagh also took part in the BBC documentary “Barristers”, broadcast in March.
In her address, Orlagh spoke of the importance of her time at St Catherine’s College and, in particular, her role in the UK Bar Mock Trial Competition which the school won in 1996:


“You are at a great school and I promise you it will hold you in good stead.”


She told the students that the key to success is hard work and perseverance and urged them to develop an unrivalled work ethic, drive, ambition and the will to succeed at the highest level:

 
“Take every opportunity that comes your way, even if it scares you.”


In concluding, Orlagh quoted Abraham Lincoln, challenging her young audience to have a hand in shaping their own future.
