2015 marks not only the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, but also the 20th anniversary of the genocidal massacre in Srebrenica, Bosnia. Together with the UK’s political, civic and faith leadership, ten Loreto students joined sixty other young people in Westminster, London, at the Holocaust Memorial Service (pictured), which was filmed and broadcast by BBC2.
The highest marks from all the candidates taking A level Biology in the summer 2014 WJEC exams across England and Wales, were achieved by three students who studied at Loreto College. Zamzan Abdullah, Emma Rogan and Khadija Khalid all celebrated their prestigious achievement on 18th December 2014 when the winners, their parents and teachers attended a ceremony at WJEC’s office in Cardiff. Awards were presented by WJEC’s Chief Executive Gareth Pierce, and special guest Media Wales Education Correspondent Gareth Evans. Emma Rogan travelled to Cardiff to receive her award; Dr Walsh (Head of Biology) also attended the event, accompanied by the former Head of Biology, Mrs Blackley, who retired in August 2014.
The college will be open as usual today, Friday 30th January.
2014 marked a very significant change in the makeup of Loreto Sixth Form College. For the first time, since it’s opening in 1851, each student who now enrols is assigned to one of the ten College Halls, each named after significant men and women in the rich history of the Catholic tradition. This new change has fostered an even greater sense of community spirit in what is an increasingly diverse and lively College environment.
