GCSE PRIZE GIVING @ SAINT CATHERINE'S COLLEGE

Professor Janice Carruthers, Head of the School of Modern Languages at Queen’s University Belfast, was Guest Speaker at the recent GCSE Prize Giving ceremony in Saint Catherine’s College. The theme of the event was “Forty Years a’ Growing” to mark the 40th anniversary of all-ability education in the school.


Principal Deirdre McDonald introduced Professor Carruthers as a “leading academic who tirelessly promotes the twin benefits of mastery of languages and life-long learning”.  Mrs McDonald acknowledged the achievements of the class of 2013 and assured them that they had done themselves proud in the fullest sense of the word.

In her address, Professor Carruthers encouraged the students to make wise choices guided by both their ability and their passion:


“Do what you believe is great work and love what you do.”


She urged the girls to fight for gender equality and increase the number of women in top jobs assuring them that they could fulfil their potential in leadership roles.
